The 2013 Summer experience was a great weekend of beautiful Toronto weather. With 16 teams split into two divisions of competitive and intermediate, every team got their share of tight matchups and rivalries.

Saturday's competitive pool play saw some strong matchups and a clear winner from each pool emerged in Ronin and NoBS, the eventual finalists. Ronin managed to upset Zen in their pool 13-10 to take the easier road to the finals. NoBS had a close shave in their pool against Hammer Hawks 13-11 but weren't challenged again until they reached the finals on Sunday. Ronin continued their undefeated streak all the way through to the finals, where they upset NoBS 15-12. Congratulations to Ronin, who are repeat champions from 2012!

In the Intermediate Division, it seems no one could rival the super pick up team, ANBU, who blitzed their pool. ANBU's first big game came in the semi's where they played against a tough Princess Layout from the other pool, winning 14-10.

In the opposing pool, The Horny Dragons tied for top seed coming into playoffs with Princess Layout but took the head to head win. The Horny Dragons would fall to Down To Huck in the semi's and lose their rematch for 3rd place against Princess Layout.

ANBU continued their strong play in the finals and beat Down To Huck 15-8.
