Although we had a smaller tournament this year, it proved to be filled with fun competition for all who played and for their visiting family and friends over the holiday weekend.

The morning started off with high energy and excitement as the teams gave it their all. Sets on the Beach and Superhuman Resources stayed neck-and-neck leading all the way up to the play-offs, having split a match and tied 7–1. North County Clinic Misfits also earned their spot in the play-offs at 6–6. Aloha Strikers on the other hand spiked their way through their pool play games with all wins, earning their spot in the play-offs with an 8–0 record.

The top four teams played with Sets on the Beach pulling through with the win against Superhuman Resources at 2–1 to enter the championship. Aloha Strikers beat North County Misfits in the play-offs and finished the tournament by defeating Sets on the Beach in the Championship Game, which effectively made Aloha Strikers the winners of the tournament with a phenomenal 12–0 record!

Congratulations to all teams for playing! We hope you enjoyed the fun competition.
