It’s finally October. At any other school, that might not be significant; but here at Southern, it means flag football is underway and futsal is wrapping up. Beyond that, we now know the official results of All Night Softball.
The softball finals were able to take place on Sunday, October 10, two weeks after the postponement of All Night Softball due to fog. The Dynasty, led by senior finance major Jared Nelson, came up on top against Shake and Bake in the men’s bracket. In the ladies’, Southern Breeze took home the title against Homeward Bound.
Futsal began on September 13, and the playoffs were held last week, featuring an eight-team single elimination bracket.
In what was an invigorating season, Legends-R-Us came out victorious against Joga Bonito in last week’s men’s A League finals.
In B League, Quokkas completed an undefeated season by hanging onto a narrow lead late in the championship game against Members Only. The Members Only four-point comeback in the second half wasn’t enough to upset the B League champs.
Juan on Juan and Yuhhhhh squared off in the ladies’ finals, resulting in a 7-4 win for Juan on Juan.
Flag football’s opening weeks saw exciting matchups from both men’s and ladies’ A League and B League. Old School has made its mark with an undefeated record in B League so far, including two back-to-back mercy rules to kick off the season. That should be impressive for a group of professors and employees past their athletic prime. But get used to it, because we’ll likely see more.
Up in A League, two conferences of eleven teams are competing for the title. So far, Papitos FC, led by junior biology major Felipe Rocha, remains the only undefeated team. Business management major Derek Schroer’s 2% and biology major Brett Strauss’ Ellen G’s Peas are still close behind, both comfortably sitting at 4-1.
The ladies’ A League flagball league holds five teams: Throws Before Bros, Bruhhh, She Gone, Yeehaw and Blocked and Rocked, the only team to start off 2-0.
In B League, only four teams are competing: 2Good4U, FumbleBEES, No Punt Intended and, at the top of the table and with a perfect 6-0 record, Butterfingers, led by sophomore health science major Eden Ottati.
It’s been an eventful month for Southern intramurals. Last week saw a combined five different championship matchups across two different sports. But, luckily for the student body, fall semester’s intramural run doesn’t stop here. Next up, it’s three-on-three basketball followed by floor hockey.
