Women’s League S0206 & Forks Tournament – Results

The women came out to Phantom Amusements @ the Forks for their monthly league date plus a tournament afterwards.

In the women’s league, Tammy K lead the way in points today. But Jill H continues to add to her big lead! Will anyone be able to catch Jill?

And in the tournament, Jill dominated & nearly posted a shutout! But Jody L had other ideas & handed Jill her only strike of the tournament in Total Nuclear Annihilation before Jill finished with a win in Deadpool. Congratulations Jill on your 1st women’s tournament win! Jill took home $20 + a Transformers translite, meanwhile Jody took home $10 for 2nd place. 3rd place belonged to Tammy K. Congrats to all!
