Poets & Pitchers won the WAFC Clique League C Division title on November 19 at Anacostia Park with a 15-10 win over SlothsSlothsSloths in the semifinals and a 13-12 win over Wonder Bred in the championship game. Thanks to a 3-0 performance in the pool play round on November 5, P&P had earned a bye to the semifinals, allowing us to face Sloths and Wonder Bred having played one fewer game over the course of the day. This was certainly a factor in the win over Sloths, who had beaten P&P in the regular season. Down 8-5 at halftime in the championship, P&P came back to tie the game at 9-9 when severe wind began to occur. Temperatures dropped sharply, the sky darkened, and play became nearly impossible. However, P&P was lucky enough to be attacking the downwind end zone at the time the winds arrived, allowing them to come out on top on universe point, 13-12. Almost every point after the start of the gusts was long and frustrating, and all were scored in the downwind end zone.
