LAPD Blue earns Major Division championship. West Coast Lawmen claim first big tournament championship in Gold.
World Champs Title Defense Tour Stop #1
For the first time in a few years, the DEA Kickoff was held in Palm Springs. There were several new teams and teams that changed their names. They were all ready to start the West Coast season off on the right track.
Gold Division results. The Gold Division had 12 teams. The two teams in the Majors Division, which went 0-2 in playoffs, dropped down the Gold Division bracket. There were some teams that came out hot. Aftermath let teams know they are going to be a force to be recon with all season long.
Bay Area Combo is another new team to the circuit that was impressive. But the team that found a way to keep winning was the West Coast Lawmen. They never run ruled a team, but they always found a way to get the win.
They were able to beat Sin City in the undefeated game and make it to the championship game. BP Arsenal was able to beat Sin City to make it to the finals. It was a very close game that went back and forth.
Having home field advantage paved off and allowed West Coast Lawmen to get a walk off victory. West Coast Lawmen went undefeated in playoffs and showed they may be a competitive team in the Mid Majors Division.
The Major Division had the usual suspects. All the teams have the ability to win a tournament. Unless LA BLUE is playing. They had half of their starters that will be at the World Series. But that doesn’t matter. Their bench players would be the number 2 or 3 team in the country. They are that good. In the end, LA Blue went undefeated and beat DEA in the championship. State 48, Razorbacks, 172 Combo, and RSO were very impressive all weekend.
The major division, on the west coast, is getting better. But for now, LA Blue is on the top with no signs of getting knocked off any time soon.
