Disc Northwest L-Pod vs. North Carolina All-Stars
Disc Northwest proved early on in this game why they are the number one seed and defending champions, as they cruised out to an early 6-0 lead and took half 8-2. The pressure was getting to North Carolina , who looked dejected and were generally lacking energy. During the halftime break the coaches tried to turn things around. “Our players looked tight early on. They had never played on the stage of YCC. We told them just to have fun,” said North Carolina coach Raju Prasad. The team made other adjustments including switching from zone defense to man and started to sub players in groups to utilize their specific talents. Halftime proved beneficial for North Carolina, and they played a stronger second half before succumbing to Disc Northwest 15-7.
