Over the years, more than three thousand of matches have been played at the Lakefront 7s. So it’s not uncommon for a team to have 1 or two shutouts during any one event.
But it is exceedingly rare for a team to win a division and have perfect defense. But that’s just what Lincoln Park did on Saturday in the Men’s Super Social division. Over 5 matches they scored 183 points while giving up not one point.
The final vs. Kraken was their smallest margin of the day (24-0), impressive given that their opponents have won many trophies at the Lakefront 7s.
We look forward to hosting Lincoln Park and runners-up Kraken in the Men’s Social division in 2022 🙂
The Kings and B-53 Bombers — both from St. Louis, MO — met in the first-ever Cup Championship for the Men’s Super Social Bracket.
The Kings were 3-0 in pool play (3-0) defeating Barky Selects (Gunbarrel, CO), Chiefs (Oswego, IL) and Bar-barians (Milwaukee, WI) along the way. In the first semi-final, they defeated Marquette (Milwaukee, WI) 24-12.
The Bombers had a similar path to the championship match with victories over Black & Blue (Milwaukee, WI), Fatbois Lite (Hungryville, USA), and Krakens (Lake Michigan, IL) in the pool stage and a 21-14 win vs. the Freeborn Felons in the second semi-final.
The Cup Championship could barely have been a closer affair. The Bombers would win the day with one more try than the Kings, but excellent kicking accuracy by the Kings meant the 24-21 scoreline was razor-thin.
