Nelson Homegrown came ever so close to taking the top prize at the Disc Break 2018 Ultimate Frisbee tournament this past weekend at the Lakeside Pitch.

Nelson Homegrown lost out to Bunny Thugs from Saskatoon 13-8 in the final Sunday.

The Saskatchewan squad used the tournament to prepare for the upcoming Nationals in Surrey.

The tournament, hosted by the Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association, attracts teams from as far as Saskatoon, Edmonton, Missoula, and Seattle.

Nelson Homegrown advanced to the final by defeating Dream Team from Kelowna and Fiesta out of Spokane to advance to the finals.

In B Division action, Release the Quakin from Tacoma came out on top.

Ultimate is a non-contact, self-refereed team sport played with a flying disc or frisbee. Two teams of seven players compete on a playing field about the same length as a football field, but narrower.  At each end of the playing field there is an end zone.  Each team defends one endzone. They score a goal if one of their players catches the disc in the opposite end zone.
