The Torch are proud to be founding members of the first season of the Premier Ultimate League! The league is made up of eight teams - Austin Torch, Atlanta Soul, Indianapolis Red, Nashville Nightshade, Medellin Revolution (Colombia), New York Gridlock and Raleigh Radiance - and will play regular season and playoff games between April 20th - June 30th!
This game was too hot for only 10 top plays... so here are the top 11!
On June 2, the Torch traveled to Atlanta to play in the first professional women's ultimate fribsee game in the State of Georgia. The Atlanta Soul treated us to a great crowd and an incredibly welcoming, competitive and spirited atmosphere.
With only 20 seconds left in regulation and down by two scores, Amy Broome connected with Elise Bjork who put a gorgeous flick to the end-zone. Thanks to Bethani Eberhart's masterful box-out and Elise Franke's ups, the Torch pulled to within one with only 8 seconds left. Assistant Coach Colleen Kepner called an on-sides pull, which would give the Torch ONE chance to get a D and a huck. Thanks to Bex Forth's intense mark, Dre Esparza's run thru D and quick throw and Michelle's perfect snag, the Torch sent the game to OT, later to win on Universe Point in double over-time.

On May 12, 2018 the Austin Torch made their professional ultimate debut in Austin, TX in front of a crowd of over 1,200 cheering fans! The Medellin Revolution flew in from Colombia for the inaugural game and both teams put on a fantastic show of high quality ultimate, phenomenal athleticism, spirited play and some killer dance moves, too! Come see the second home game against the Nashville Nightshade June 23, 2018. Special thanks to Ultiworld for live streaming the game and Hoag Kepner for shooting and editing this film.
