With another successful 80’S week in the books, Portland Dodgeball League has reached to half way point of the season with many teams in need of shaking up the playoff standings. The Crossfire division top teams include “Wolves of Ball Street,” “Sticky Fingers” and “The Replacements” all jockeying for position for the leagues one seed. However, don’t sleep on “Cannoli Cannons” who are rounding into form under the leadership of their captain “spin move” Teah. Not to worry “Blazing Blue Balls,” there is always a chance!
Tuesday Scorcher division has become a two team race for the number one seed. Defending champion “DAAABLE Check” and “Foreside Tavern” are separated by only ten points going into week 7. Newcomers “Blue Barracudas” have been a fine attrition to the league with their athletic play and HAVE FUN FIRST approach to the sport. Captain Lucas put on a show last week. In one game he single handedly took all six opponents one by one with 30 seconds left in the game, only proving that “Ball So Hard” needs to be taken seriously in the playoffs.
The best thirsty Thursday in town can be found at the Cube, where the PDL Stinger division showcases competitive play in an inviting, social atmosphere. “Suns out guns out” continues to play hard on and off the court each week and have finally found a home in the Stinger division. The usual suspects (High Heat, Slaughterballs, Impractical Ballers) are all battling for seeding and talking serious smack (Freeman, Abbot, Auger on the court, but they never forget to share a pint after the game. The season is winding down quickly, so start thinking about Spring and Summer sports.

March 1st 2014 Winter Challenge (14 teams)
This past Saturday Portland Dodgeball League was proud to host The Winter Challenge in support of the Mitchell Kessler scholarship fund. Dodgeballer’s from all divisions faced off in a 3v3 format that produced the most exciting dodge, dips, ducks, dives and catches all year. In addition to the great play all teams sported solid team names and uniforms as well. This year the A-division was extremely stacked with talent across the board. One early on match up produced a big upset with the 3 seed (Killin it) falling to the 6 seed (B-League). The 1 seed (New Peterson Army) looked strong right from the start of pool play, but caught some bad breaks in the elimination round falling to the eventual champs (Killin it). The “party too hard” award this year goes to (MISO DODGY), who had a strong roster on paper, but proved to be more focused off the court, providing the audience with great entertainment. As the afternoon progressed (DAABLE Check) was looking like the team to beat with Captain Orry Cummings leading his team by example, catching any color ball thrown his way and implementing team strategy at all times. However, in the championship they proved to be no match for the strong and accurate arms of (Killin it), who had played its way into the final via the losers bracket becoming the first team in PDL history to claim the title after being upset in the first round. Rumor has it that a certain curse was finally broken
"Killin' It" "Sup City"
The B-division was made up of several veterans and first timers all really enjoying the sport of Dodgeball in its purest form. Captain Lucas Guthier led the 5 (seed) Victory Shots to the quarter finals flashing brilliant athletic ability and crafty team play throughout the competition. League favorites of the Monday night Crossfire division, “Sticky fingers” split up and formed two teams (Silent Duck) and (SUP CITY) and put on a true PDL clinic on how play the game the right way. Eventually the top two seeds Galacticats (1 seed) and SUP CITY (2 seed) met in the championship with SUP CITY winning the best of seven series convincingly 4 to 1. Showing true professionalism, Silent Duck were the first ones to congratulate their Monday night teammates. Casco Bay Sports and Portland Dodgeball League extend a big thank you to all participants who came out Saturday for a truly great cause. It’s never too early to start thinking about putting a team in for the 3v3 Holiday tournament this upcoming December.
