The Boys Ultimate team beat Masterman 15-11 to end their fall season on Friday. The team was led by the defensive efforts of senior co-captain Kobe Nabried and juniors Nate Little and Saamir Baker. SLA, which had lost two close games to Masterman earlier in the season, was determined to avenge the earlier losses. The team played some of their most cohesive Ultimate of the season, overcoming an early 2-0 deficit to take the first half 8-5. Junior Eli Block led the offense with several key early deep passes for scores.
Masterman came back early in the second half to tie the game 8-8, and another classic SLA v. Masterman match was in the works. The teams traded points until SLA pulled ahead to stay at 11-10, when senior Griffin Gallagher threw a score to Block to take the lead. SLA closed out the game -- and the fall season -- on a 4-1 run to beat their in-city rivals 15-11. The team will now take November and December off before beginning winter training for a march to the PA State Championships in the spring.
