The finals were two out of three games to 21 points. The team of Conrad Damon and Daniel O'Neill played Jim Elsner and Jordan Huston. Conditions were pretty good, warm and humid with a fairly light and only somewhat variable wind.

Here's yet another attempt to break down scoring in DDC, into common ways of throwing out and defensive mistakes. Most of the categories are self-explanatory. I considered a "bail" to be any disc that a player lets land in, for any reason - they may have thought it was out, or were concerned about getting doubled. In general I set the bar high for the defense - a team is expected to escape everything unless a clear winner was thrown.
|Doubling shot OUT||1||5||2||3|
|Solo attack OUT||0||3||0||1|
|Quick off OUT||4||1||2||5|
The number are fairly even between the teams, which makes sense given the results. The first game was very close, and the last two were blowouts in different directions.
