Intramural floor hockey tournament underway

It’s the heart of winter, and you know what that means: it’s hockey season, floor hockey that is. The intramural floor hockey tournament has begun, and the action is rapidly heating up. A quick summary of what has gone down so far:

In the first round, #FISHTANK mauled Phi Kappa Psi 11-0. Zeta Psi advanced with a win over Delta Chi, and Phi Delt kept their season alive with a victory against Delta Iota Kappa.

In the second round, Team Zacher destroyed the BME SunDevils 16-2. Delta Upsilon moved on to the next round after defeating The Sports Fiesta 10-3. SigEp shut out Delta Chi 14-0 to stay alive, while Beta Theta Pi defeated Alpha Chi Omega 13-2. Phi Kappa Tau knocked off Phi Gamma Delta to keep their title hopes alive. Round two action was completed on Wednesday night. Snakes and Vests squared off against #FISHTANK, Phi Kappa Theta faced Zeta Psi and Dental Dynasty clashed with Phi Delt. The intramural website has the results of the remaining contests.

Additionally, the consolation bracket began play on Wednesday night for the teams, who got knocked out early in the tournament. The action began when Delta Chi took on Alpha Chi Omega and the BME SunDevils squared off against Phi Kappa Psi. As the playoff tournament progresses, more teams will throw their respective hats into the ring in the consolation bracket. Check back next week for the latest bracket updates.

Don’t miss as these teams vie for the title of league champion. Every game will be sure to contain the intensity of a game seven in the NHL, and you never know when a classic will break out. The tournament quarterfinals are just around the corner, with some great matchups on tap. Delta Upsilon will take on SigEp in a game featuring a couple of powerful offenses, while the mighty Team Zacher is slated to take on the winner of #FISHTANK versus Snakes and Vests. The victor of Phi Kappa Theta versus Zeta Psi will advance to face the juggernaut that is Beta Theta Pi, and unstoppable Phi Kappa Tau awaits the survivor of Phi Delt against Dental Dynasty.

Although the glorious hockey tournament will soon wrap up, there are plenty of intramural tournaments waiting in the wings. Don’t miss it when basketball gets underway, and the players take the hardwood. Adding to the intrigue, some of the leagues will feature official referees, adding another layer of strategy to the action. Plus, the campus battleship tournament will take place this Saturday. It’s a battle to determine the last team standing—or floating in this case. Finally, there will be a bowling tournament taking place at The Corner Alley on Feb. 15. It might not be Thanksgiving, but you can bet a turkey would still be a welcome sight to the bowlers. As Jeff Lebowski might say, “The dude abides.” Hopefully, the ball will abide for all that day.
