The Trailblazers, the tournament’s overall No. 1 seed, were shocked by Pacific University. The 5th-seeded Boxers leveraged a week-long social media campaign en route to an 868-vote margin of victory in the Portlandia bracket. In the same bracket, the lowest seeded team to advance from Round 1 continued their winning ways, as No. 6 Rose City Rollers knocked off the No. 2 Fighting Fillies by 776 votes.

Meanwhile, in the Rose City bracket, another No. 1 seed fell. Like the Blazers, the Winterhawks also lost to a local college as the 5th-seeded Linfield Wildcats clawed over the Hawks by 417 votes.

The Stags, Portland’s professional ultimate Frisbee team, received the most votes in Round 2. Backed by the social media support of their national organization, the Rose City bracket’s No. 2 Stags racked up more than 11,000 votes in a somewhat close battle with the No. 3 Pigs. While the Pigs lost, they easily secured the round’s second most votes with 10,506, losing to the Stags by just 1.9 percent.


  • In the Bridgetown bracket, No. 1 Portland State manhandled No. 4 Warner Pacific for the largest victory of the round, securing 82% of all votes in their matchup and winning by 2,922. The Vikings finished third overall in the round for most votes.
  • The Timbers again won handily, as the Stumptown bracket’s No. 1 seed easily defeated the No. 4 Wheels of Justice women’s roller derby squad.
  • The closest matchup of the round saw the Stumptown bracket’s Australian Rules Football Club, No. 2 Steelheads, edge out the No. 3 Thorns by just 298 votes.
  • The final matchup saw the No. 2 Hops crush the No. 3 Portland Pilots by more than 2,000 votes in the Bridgetown bracket.
