DPL – Meet 1

Event: DPL (Meet 1)
Date: 20th October 2013
Venue: Manchester MET Uni

The 20th of October saw the eagerly awaited return of the Dodgeball Premier League. ‘Dodgeball has a Premier League?’ you ask with astonishment upon your lips. Indeed it does, and its competitors are no less committed and the rivalries no less fierce than you might find on a football pitch.

The Warwick Warriors donned their crimson shirts and set about the task that lay ahead: 3 wins from 3 was the least that the boys needed in this first crucial meet. And achieve this they did, narrowly edging a cagey affair with Reepham Raiders 8-6, before dismantling Bullet Dodgers 10-4 and crowning the successful day with a solid 9-5 victory over Balls of Steel.

On the back of these results, Warwick found themselves sitting pretty in second place with 36 points, just 5 points off the current leaders The Dirty Ducks, a team of Warwick graduates, who looked in mightily impressive form.

MVP:

Adam Bowditch had an imperious day, his throwing and catching consistent throughout. Against Balls of Steel he was fantastic, twice clawing Warwick back from the brink of defeat with a number of vital catches and powerful throwing.

– Oliver Hopkins (Men’s Vice-Captain)
