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.
