Sofa Kingdom Wins Fall Brawl

IMG_1058A great night at the East Falls Marketplace on Saturday, as the Sofa Kingdom came from behind in the final round to defeat Lambda and the Champs, 110-97-97. Lambda won the tiebreaker. Every bar on the JGT circuit was represented with the exception of O’Neals. The Kingdom, who saw the return of The Swan, found themselves down four going into the final round, but aced the final round to cruise to the win. Lambda finished 2nd after a tiebreaker. In a move that made many recall Deion Sanders playing for the Braves and the Falcons in the same day, Steve-O of Lambda hopped back and forth between the playing field and the keyboard, where he jammed on the keyboard between rounds. 

I want to thank the East Falls Marketplace for having us, want to thank all of the teams for making their way out to a new spot, and want to thank Sly Fox for supplying us with their terrific beer. 

Final results and pics of all the teams after the jump.
