The Washington Area Frisbee Club (WAFC) sent four teams to the USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships in Blaine, Minnesota over this past weekend. Overall, the teams went way beyond expectations and proved to the rest of the country what incredible young talent is emerging here in the DC area. The U20 Girls team DC Rogue upset both the #1 and #2 seeds on the way to a spot in the national final…
Throughout the 2017 DC Breeze season it seemed that offensive consistency was the theme for the team and the highlight of most contests. If the offense played well the team would walk away with a victory, and it often did just that. However, the full season statistics may tell a different story.
For the third time in four years the Breeze finished 10-4 and earned a spot in the AUDL Playoffs. And for the second straight year, that record is good enough to earn a #2 seed and 1st round home playoff game. #3 seed Montréal Royal (9-5) will come to town August 11 for a Friday evening battle starting at 7pm. The winner of that game will head north the next morning to face the #1 seed Toronto Rush (11-3) at 1pm on Sunday, August 13 for the right to represent the East Division at AUDL Championship VI August 26-27 in Montréal.

Ultiworld has placed odds on every remaining AUDL team in the quest for the 2017 AUDL Championship. The Breeze come in at 12-1, 7th best odds among the 12 playoff teams. It’s no surprise that Raleigh Flyers and Dallas Roughnecks are tied for most likely to lift the trophy — both are 3-1 favorites despite the fact that only one of them will make it to the Final Four in Montréal August 26-27.
In the final game of the 2017 regular season for the DC Breeze, mid-season addition Joe Freund shined brightly. Leading the team with four goals and matching the team-high of three assists, Freund was was the key element of the Breeze’s 23-20 win over the Philadelphia Phoenix.
The final AUDL standings are set following the conclusion of regular season play this past weekend. In addition, with the final standings confirmed, the dates and opponents of the two Eastern Division playoff contests have been announced as well.
The Breeze won their final regular season game last night in a hard fought, storm delayed contest against the Philadelphia Phoenix, 23-20. The playoff picture is somewhat clearer as the Breeze have secured at least 2nd place, but not even the final standings will be determined until after today’s games in Canada.
