El Nino, B-Unit, Oasis win Sunshine State titles at Sports Complex

Teams compete for two days in Extreme Frisbee Championships

GREEN COVE SPRINGS — Players from El Nino came from Fort Lauderdale and Miami, so they were accustomed to hot conditions, which paid off during the two-day Sunshine State Games Ultimate Championships at the Clay County Regional Sports Complex last weekend. The championship, which is a mix of lacrosse, soccer, football and frisbee without hitting or running with the disc, was won by the South Florida visitors, 7-6, against the Jacksonville Psychedelics after a 75-minute time limit was reached. Eight teams were in the men’s division, and five teams in the mixed championship. B-Unit from Gainesville and Oasis finished with 6-1 records in mixed, and since their only losses were against each other, they tied for the overall victory. One team “kicks off” to the other by throwing the disc to the far side of the field. The other team can advance the disc by completing throws without dropping it or having it intercepted while being defended. A player scores when he catches the disc in the endzone.
