¡Campeones! Bravas B Best Rest in Bid for Gold


While the men of Bravas Ultimate are no strangers to the podium, the top step has remained stubbornly elusive... until now. A strong Bravas B squad fought their way to top honors at Spain's National Championship of Beach Ultimate, 2nd Division. Starting with a win against a young and always improving Squirrels team, Bravas had to settle for second place in the initial group phase after a tough 11 - 10 loss against Disterics of Girona.

Thanks to an 11 - 7 win against Tarragona's Mamaiadors in the cross-over game, Bravas advanced to the upper pool where they would meet Discachos of Murcia as well as the opportunity for a rematch with Disterics. An 11 - 4 victory over the colorfully attired Murcianos was followed by the second Disterics game in what turned out to be the deciding game of the tournament. Bravas started strong with a 5 - 1 lead. Disterics stopped the bleeding, staying close but still trailing 7 - 4 at half-time. In the end, Bravas managed to sweat out an 11 - 9 victory to complete their sweep of the final pool, guaranteeing not only a first-place finish but promotion to the 1st Division for next year's championship.

Assuming Bravas A maintain their position in 1st after next month's 1st Division Nationals, Bravas will have an historic two teams in the top division.
