Grand Masters Open EMUCC 2022 Finals
The finals turned out to be the toughest games of the tournament, with unstoppable Silence v4.0 competing against Zimmer. Silence had a sure footed ascent to the final games. The team chemistry, experience and good decisions had them slip through the tournament with ease. Zimmer also went through the pool games smoothly besides their first game… with Silence.
Both teams were going head to head. Only at 6:7 Silence had a moment of respite with a 2 point dominance. Zimmer was not about to give up easily and caught up with Czech’s team. Calculated offense, hucks and efficient defense had the teams struggle to make a break.
An error could cost each team a grave mistake. The game gave us what we love best. Lots of hucks and carefully planned offense.
After Zimmer was not successful enough to get the lead, they tried to switch things up and came up with a zone defense. Unsuccessful. Silence scored quickly.
The intense game lead up to the universe point with wind picking up. A drop next to the zone for Silence brought a moment of fright. Zimmer was fast to reply with offense, which failed. After that Silence turned things around into a gold medal situation.
Silence v3.3 and Hardfisch earned their way to the finals with some exciting matches this weekend. The match started for both of them just as tough, but after 2:2 there were a few calls, which temporarily slowed down the game.
Both teams exchanged points until 5:5 and then Silence took off for the 9:6 lead. Hard defense caused a few unforced turnovers. Hardfisch lefty handler Malte Meistering was able to grab a long deep huck with a layout. Soon after, Hamburgers scored twice. The Germans went for the kill and scored 5 points in a row to get the 12:10 lead.
Silence tried Zone D and they have successfully generated turnovers. It seemed like Hardfisch missed their chance but they stayed grinding. Both teams were exhausted and you could see that in the universe point, which had plenty of turnovers. Everybody wanted to finish it quickly and hucked it deep. Players propped their hands on their knees. It was the simple swing that got Hardfisch near the endzone. They had 5 handlers at one time and nearly walked into the endzone.
PUC and BEEFIRE advanced to the finals. The game was dominated by PUC from the very beginning. 3:0 for the team from Paris. BEEFIRE had to chase the score, but they slowly managed to start catching up with the French Masters team. With a sneaky defense, they went for a change of disc possession. However, PUC was quick to regain control. The team trusted each other with full field hucks. Every score was celebrated by the team.
PUC held BEEFIRE at a comfortable distance of 3-4 points and it was no surprise that they are wearing gold now.
