Dodgeball at Northwest Recreation Center

With another great season of Dodgeball at Northwest Recreation Center underway, it has been great to see the mix of new players and veterans competing and having a fun on the court!  Don’t forget to take fun photos at the courts and at Little Woodrow’s Burnett and share them with #AustinSSC for a chance to win the pic of the week!

Wednesday Dodgeball: Winter Season in Review!

 

Twelve teams. Twelve games. Six weeks. This past season’s winter dodgeball had new teams, new faces, returning champs, dodgeball veterans, great attitudes, tons of fun, and awesome happy hours at Little Woodrow’s after the games! Here’s a rundown of what happened this past season at the Northwest Rec Center!

 

Week One

Week one was off to a great start. There were a ton of familiar faces and a few new faces ready to show off their dodgeball skills. Even more impressive was the social aspect of the night, with all the teams hanging out, welcoming each other back from the holiday break, and welcoming the newcomers to the club.

 

The game of the evening went to Lords of Dodgetown versus The Untouchaballs in the 8 o’clock game.  With time restraints tight, and the timer quickly ticking away, Lords of Dodgetown took home their second win of the night in an epic sudden death overtime. Lords of Dodgetown beat The Untouchaballs 4-3!

Week Two

Brian’s Smoked Placentas started off a little rusty against One Ball To Rule Them All by giving up two rounds to the returning champions.  However, after a little warm up, in their typical style, Brian’s Smoked Placentas came back to knock One Ball To Rule Them All down 4-2 for the win!

 

Another great game that evening was Kylee’s Team against the Purple Cobras in a strong match up!  Both teams have a lot of new players but also a handful of key players with notable athleticism too.  After a back and forth battle the Cobras pulled away for the win in the seventh round, winning 4-3!

Week Three

One of the last games of the evening on week three, Dirty Dodgers versus Dodgy Style, earned the title, “The Game of the Night!”  Both teams were just having a great time!  It was a free-for-all on the court.  Both teams were just throwing at each other, laughing, enjoying their selves, and played without a care!  Dodgy Style took it away with a 4-0 win!

 

Honorable mention goes to the game against Kylee’s Team and Lords of Dodgetown. Their game was the most competitive of the evening. Both teams were feisty and evenly-matched, skill wise. Kylee’s Team fought hard against Lords of Dodgetown, but ended the night with a loss, 2-4.

Week Four

The game of the evening featured the Purple Cobras against Dirty Dodgers. Purple Cobras knocked out Dirty Dodgers 4-1, but despite the score, it was a great game all around!  Both teams played hard and thoroughly enjoyed playing against each other. There were a lot of laughs and tons goofing off! Both of the teams’ camaraderie really helped set the tone of the game. Though not a top team yet, Purple Cobras are a fierce competitor with the right attitude.  They play fair, they have fun, and they try their hardest!

Week Five

Week five’s game of the night went to Lords of Dodgetown and One Ball To Rule Them All.  These two teams just couldn’t knock each other out in a clean sweep.  Lords of Dodgetown would obliterate One Ball To Rule Them All in one round, and One Ball To Rule Them All would do the same to Lords of Dodgetown in the next one!  There was one round where One Ball To Rule Them All was left with only one guy on the court.  He systematically took down the four remaining players on Lords of Dodgetown to win that round! Unfortunately, One Ball To Rule Them All didn’t have enough tricks up their sleeve to keep the momentum. They fell to Lords of Dodgetown 4-3!

Week Six

The last night of the regular season before playoffs, and as to be expected, there were many exciting games worth mentioning!

 

First up, we had the Purple Cobras facing off against the Ballcoholics.  The still-new-to-dodgeball Cobras were up 3 to 1 before the Ballcoholics decided they had enough losing. The Ballcoholics made an amazing comeback from what should have been a game ending deficit. Ballcoholics came back to win 4-3!

 

Next, we had Fervent Gesticulation going rounds with One Ball To Rule Them All.  Although One Ball To Rule Them All is the returning champion from the former season, they faced low odds of victory against Fervent Gesticulation, who have been a notoriously tough team to beat. Fervent Gesticulation must have been asleep for half the game because One Ball To Rule Them All dominated in the first three rounds! Finally, Fervent Gesticulation decided they were ready to play.  They fought hard and won the next 4 rounds against One Ball for the overall win and subsequently keeping their perfect record!

 

Lastly, Dodgy Style went up against Lords Of Dodgetown in an comeback for the night!  Lords of Dodgetown have been an unpredictable team this season, unlike Dodgy Style, who have lost 66% of their games.  In this particular game, the Lords of Dodgetown were down 3-1 and realized they were on their way to adding another loss to their record.  Lords of Dodgetown eventually rallied and came out on top with the win, 4-3!

Playoffs

The top four teams met at playoffs in the semi-finals to duke it out for the championship title! In the single elimination rounds, Fervent Gesticulation played against One Ball to Rule Them All, and Brian’s Smoked Placenta’s faced the Lords of Dodgetown. It was a close game between Fervent Gesticulation and One Ball to Rule Them All. Fervent Gesticulation was down 3 to 0, but was able to turn it around for themselves and not give the reigning champs the opportunity to defend their title. Fervent Gesticulation advanced to the finals, 4-3! Brian’s Smoked Placentas blew Lords of Dodgetown out of the water, 4-0, in the semi-finals and also advanced to battle it out for the championship against Fervent Gesticulation!

The final round in the playoffs came and went just as soon as it started! It seemed as if Brian’s Smoked Placentas finally found their groove! Similar to their game in the semi-finals, the Placentas smoked Fervent Gesticulation in an easy game, 4-0! Congratulations, Brian’s Smoked Placentas!

‘Tis The Season To Dodge Lots of Balls!’

It’s Dodgeball playoff night at Northwest Rec Center and were there a lot of balls being dodged! LOOKOUT!!!

Let’s get started with the Quarterfinals action:

The Untouchaballs took on Purple Cobras in early action with both teams just getting warmed up. The Untouchaballs made quick work of the Purple Cobras knocking them out 5-1 to advance.
Stove Porlow went up against 18 Wheelers and also rolled over their opponents with a 5-1 victory. This could be a long night!!

On the other side of the draw, “Z” in Zero faced Gotta Catch Em All in a close one. Lots of sneak attacks with some agile footwork in this match up! Another close game with “Z” in Zero edging out Gotta Catch Em All 5-3! Nice game!

In the final quarterfinal match, Lauren Swipes Right took care of Ballcoholics 5-1 with some precision throws and even better moves to head into the next round.

Now on to the Semifinals:

At the beginning of the semi finals game the Untouchaballs had an immediate two-fer against Lauren Swipes Right.  There was about to be another one right after that but the ball bounced off his teammate, onto his back, and in true Andy fashion he caught it behind his back one-handed.  That was seriously the play of the night with The Untouchaballs coming out on top 5-3.
In another close match up, “Z” in Zero took on the powerful Stove Porlow in those striking black jerseys! Score went back and forth with the tension growing with each throw and miss. Stove Porlow down to their last man couldn’t save him and took the loss 4-5! It’s gettin’ hot in here!!!

We are all set for the Finals and we were not disappointed!!
The “Z” in Zero, unlike most teams in playoffs, came in strong and played like champions the entire night.  They had tough games against really good teams (Gotta Catch Em All, Stove Porlow, and The Untouchaballs) but finally came out on top 5-3! Joe A. from The “Z” In Zero had a fantastic night as it was his last in dodgeball.  He’s leaving with a championship win finally and what better way to go out!

After the Championship match, the party continued over at Little Woodrow’s Burnet – Literally half of the teams in playoffs showed up for happy hour. The Purple Cobras went to happy hour after their elimination round, came back to the rec center for open gym, and then went back to happy hour.  How awesome is that?! Let’s do it all again next season!

Where would you find Catchers, Throwers, Corners and Snipers? Dodgeball!!!

Ever drive by NWRC on a Wednesday night and wonder what all the ruckus is all about? It’s ASSC Dodgeball! Here’s how it all played out last week:

In our favorite team name match up…..and the game of the night, hands down, goes to Aiming For The Fat Ones vs Attack Of The Menacing Man-Eating Squirrels.  AFTFO came right out of the gate strong and quickly overtook the Squirrels.  Never to stay down long, however, the Squirrels rallied in the third round and stunned AFTFO to take the victory! My oh my….those squirrels are cagey little critters!

Notable Mention 1: 18 Wheelers and The Blue Ballers had by far the most fun during their game than any other match up. Both teams had heavy fan clubs and huge benches present turning the court into a sea of blue jerseys battling it out.  With every great play, on either side of the line, lots of cheers, rally cries and screams followed. Boy, they were loud! When it was all said and done, The Blue Ballers won the match and the $25 gift card to share at happy hour after the game

Notable Mention 2:  The Untouchables v. Stove Porlow in an awesomely matched showdown that saw it’s share of overtimes. Round 1 went to The Untouchables in an obviously close match which could have gone either way. Stove Porlow was not about to cry “UNCLE” though and kept the second round close as well. The Untouchables were too tough on this night though and took the win. Wow….doesn’t get much closer than that!

In the last duel of the night, Dodgy Style went up against The “Z” in Zero. There was a zero in the match up but it wasn’t pinned on the Zs. They blanked out Dodgy Style with a one sided victory 4-0 when the last player was thrown out. Awesome show!

Bruised and battered, everyone headed over to Little Woodrow’s on Burnet to lick their wounds and swap stories of the night. Another great night in the books and the best part…..we get to do it all over again next time…..join us!

 

Can You Dodge a Giant Red Ball?? Are You Sure??

squirells

If you think you can dodge a ball, show up at Northwest Rec Center on Wednesday’s to find out! In the meantime, here’s how these teams managed to dodge a few of their own!

The Untouchaballs pretended to be Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day” doing the same thing over and over! Good news, though….they won both their games by 4-0! First they took out Aiming For The Fat Ones then they blanked LX stands for Luxury by the same score! Now that’s a score worth repeating!

LX Stands for Luxury and Aiming For The Fat Ones couldn’t seem to catch a break all night falling by the exact same score in their next 2 games! 18 Wheelers took them both out by 4-0! What’s going on around here?!

Well, let’s try this again……but backwards….sort of! You Can Dodge a Wrench You Can Dodge a Ball lost both their games by a score of 2-4. They fell to Gotta Catch Em All and Ballcoholics by the same score! Is it another Super Moon…or something!

The Blue Ballers came up short in both their games as well…first falling behind Purple Cobras 1-4 then Dodgy Style 3-4.

In other action, Stove Porlow split games, first winning 4-0 against Dodgy Style then coming up short 2-4 against Purple Cobras.

So let’s wrap it up by talking about those Man-Eating Squirrels, shall we? They sucked in their first game not scoring a single hit losing to Ballcoholics 0-4. Then they quickly turned things around in their matchup against the favorite, Gotta Catch Em All. They defied the odds and took the upset 4-3 to earn bragging rights…..at least for another week! Well done Squirrels!

Little Woodrow’s Burnet was the place to be after it was all said and done! With a few red welts to compare and victories to savor, everyone tipped a few back in the best Happy Hour in Austin……ASSC style!

Dodging Bill Collectors? …..Yes! Dodging Balls? ……He*! Yes!

If you are looking for some awesome Dodgeball on Wednesday nights, head over to Northwest Rec Center and don’t stand in one place too long……you might become the new target of a flying, screaming dodge ball! Sit back and see how it all went down on Wednesday!

Bad news for the Attack of the Menacing Man-Eating Squirrels……they got attacked by 18 Wheelers 1-4. Not to rub it in but, they were on the losing side of their second game too……0-4 in favor of The Untouchaballs. Sorry Squirrels……go bury some nuts somewhere!

Unfortunately for LX Stands for Luxury…..it stood for Losing on this night! First to the “Z” in Zero 0-4 then to the lime green team of Lauren Swipes Right by the exact same score…..0-4. What is it about 0-4 for this team. Here’s hoping next week the LX stands for “lotta 10s!”

In our next matchup, “Z” in Zero got a chance for redemption against Aiming for the Fat Ones. Both teams connected early with 2 apiece before Zero scored 2 more taking the 4-2 dub-ya. To make matters worse, Aiming for the Fat Ones could only post up 1 point in the later game against Lauren Swipes Right. They took out their opponent with 4 points to take the victory. Nice game!

Dodgy Style spent most of their time dodging balls rather than scoring points to drop both of the night’s matches. They managed to score 1 point to Ballcoholics 4 and zero points to Gotta Catch Em All’s 4 points. Long night for Dodgy……let’s try it again next week though!

Purple Cobras had high hopes for the evening but looked doomed from the beginning by losing to Gotta Catch Em All 0-4. All hopes were not dashed, however when they took on their next opponent, Ballcoholics in the night’s final game. Both teams matched each other’s first 2 scores and kept it close until the final minute of the match. Purple Cobras struck next and even another last second kill to take the match 4-2. Exciting game!

Whether they got killed or dodged another one, everyone took the party over to Little Woodrows after it was all said and done. Whether it was comparing bruises or throwing down challenges for next week, a few cold ones were tossed back with promises to “kill” it next week. Come join us!

Dodging Wrenches….Dodging Balls…..what’s going on around here?!

dodgeawrench

If you are looking where some balls were dodged this week, NorthWest Rec Center was the ticket! Here’s the deets:

Court 1 – 7:00 PM
Stove Porlow (Black) (A) 4 at Attack of the Menacing Man-Eating Squirrels! (H) 0
Stove Porlow took on Attack of the Menacing Man-Eating Squirrels! to prove maybe a vegetarian diet might serve them better! Squirrels could put nothing up on the board while Stove Porlow tacked on 4 to take it to the flesh eating vermin!

Court 2 – 7:20 PM
Not to go completely hungry, the Menacing Man-Eating Squirrels could not be denied the entire night! The Blue Ballers tried every tactic in the book but just couldn’t connect when it counted. Squirrels 4, balls of blue 0!

Court 1 – 7:20 PM
Back on court 1, Stove Porlow was back to face another worthy opponent…..You Can Dodge A Wrench You Can Dodge A Ball (not sure if either one of those are true!) Seems like the team name deceives since Dodge a Ball couldn’t seem to hold up to their end of the bargain. Stove Porlow took them out 4-1 when it was all said and done!

Court 2 – 7:40 PM
In the next matchup on court 2, Ballcoholics took it to LX stands for Luxury 4 to zip. Looks like LX stood for loser times 10 :-/

Court 1 – 7:40 PM
Gotta Catch Em All went up against Aiming for the Fat Ones in a lopsided victory 4-1 back on court 1. That’s what they get for having such a politically incorrect team name!

Court 2 – 8:00 PM
Looked like Groundhog Day for Aiming for the Fat Ones taking on Ballcoholics on Court 2 for the 8 o’clock game. Different game, same outcome…….Aiming for the Fat Ones taking the loss at 1-4.

Court 1 – 8:00 PM
Said it before and I’ll say it again….another Groundhog Day turnout! LX stands for Luxury couldn’t seem to get it going on this night and took another L 0-4 against Gotta Catch Em All.

Court 2 – 8:20 PM
18 Wheelers (Sky) (A) 0 at The “Z” in Zero (Gold) (H) 4
“Z” in Zero went up against 18 Wheelers and basically rolled all over them with a 4-0 shut out on court 2. What the hell happened here!?

Court 1 – 8:20 PM
Back on Court 1 The Untouchaballs tried to stay that way against Lauren Swipes Right. This game proved a tough one after all with The Untouchaballs notching 2 games but Lauren had the advantage with 4 in the end.

Court 2 – 8:40 PM
The Untouchaballs (Maroon) (A) 4 at The “Z” in Zero (Gold) (H) 1
Never giving up, though, The Untouchaballs pinned 4 on the “Z” in Zero who were only able to take 1 game. Nice comeback Untouchaballs!
Hands down game of the night goes to You Can Dodge A Wrench You Can Dodge A Ball versus The Blue Ballers.  Both teams were new and getting used to the rules and boundaries.  It was pretty epic to watch so many players constantly jumping of bounds and all over the place!  These teams, however, were obviously evenly matched as they had the closest scores of the night with Wrench/Ball winning a close one at 4-3.

Little Woodrows was the place to be after the matches with everyone licking their wounds and vowing revenge for next week. Come out and see what all the hub-bub is all about!

Balls, Balls Everywhere……Dodgeballs that is!

Court 2 at Northwest Rec Center saw all the great action last night!  The first round between Ballcoholics and Balls? Balls. was the most impressive game of the night.  Ballcoholics started off strong going 3-0 but the Balls came back with some momentum of their own tying it up at 3-3.

If it had been a regular season game the always jazzed Ballcoholics would have taken home the win since they stole the 7th round with ease.  But Balls had other ideas, grabbing the final 2 rounds and the 5-4 win heading into the semifinals.

Balls faced the talented Steve team for a semifinal showdown. Steve proved to be their usual tough and strategic team taking the match 5-1 heading into the finals. Great showing Balls……er…….great game for the Balls? Balls. team :-/

 

In the other Semi final match, Gotta catch em’ all faced The Untouchable Untouchaballs and couldn’t seem to get on the board before falling 0-5. The Untouchaballs were on their way for another finals showdown with Steve……..this is how we play tournament dodgeball!!

Naturally, the final game was quite the matchup for both teams since they have matched up pretty evenly in their previous face offs. With a recent loss to the Untouchaballs, Steve came out firing on all cylinders looking to take back the number one spot.

Their balls were on fire……taking out Untouchaballs one at a time…..game after game. They finally had their revenge and took the title at 5-2! What a rematch!!

Consolation action saw Snoop Dodgey Dodge and Happy Hour Specials in one hell of a battle to at least have a spot on the podium.  Literally each team taking one round at a time.  In the end Happy Hour Specials took the consolation win 5-4 along with all the bragging rights for not being shut completely out. Whew……another awesome night of dodging balls….can’t wait for next week!

We love ourselves some Little Woodrows after the games for Happy Hour. Lots of cold brewsky specials……tall tales…….sportsmanship and camaraderie to go around. We will see you all again next week……most def!!

Don’t Let The Inflated Round Thing Hit You……ever!!

dodge ball

noun
1.

a court game in which players throw an inflated ball at opponents within the court who try to avoid being hit, and therefore eliminate, the winner being the one who remains unhit.
According to the definition…….The Untouchables took down the undefeated Steve team…. “being the one who remains unhit.” Wow…..no one saw that one coming!!
In other action we saw Snoop Dodgey Dodge  vs. Dodgy Style. Despite it being a 4-1 knock out, Dodgy Style jellied up as a unit and went down fighting.  Snoop was able to notch their first win of the season to get the night going.

In the game of the “greens” Ballcoholics took on Dodgy Style in a “new vs old” clash to start the season.
In the “Miss Congeniality” division, Ballcoholics is back again to see if they can match their good sportsmanship with some wins this season.  This was an epic battle between the two eager teams, but at the end of the back and forth, Dodgy Style finally took home their first win of the season 4-3.

In the game of the night, Happy Hour Specials took on Aiming For The Fat Ones (where do they get these team names??!!)
HH had raised their game from last season but, AFTFO was up for it….matching hit for hit.

Then something happened……like the mommy who gets super human strength to lift the car off the trapped baby……HH was down from 6 players to 1 and it looked all over but the cryin’. This lone ranger plucked off players like tin cans on a stump post! HH takes the impossible win at 4-2 while the crowd raises the roof! Well done Ke-mo sah-bee!

After the matches, Happy Hour at Little Woodrow’s – Burnet hosted some bruised and battered ballers for a few brewskies and even some card playing. Lots of laughs, suds and camaraderie to finish off another great night of D-Ball. Can’t wait to do it all again next week…..see you there!
