2014 Thunder Top Play Tourney!

The Portland Thunder made a ton of fantastic plays in the 2014 season, and some of them didn’t quite get the attention they deserved throughout the year.

We’re rectifying that issue with the 2014 Portland Thunder Top Play Tourney, pitting the top 32 (or so) plays from our wins in our inaugural season against each other.

At the top of the graphic, we have plays from our victories over foes from the Western Conference – the San Antonio Talons and Los Angeles KISS. Each region’s top play will meet in a semi-final. On the bottom of the graphic, we have plays from our wins over Eastern Conference teams – with a couple of Florida road wins, those teams got combined into their own region – battling it out for a spot in the final.
