Dodgeball!
The Terrors set a new speed record in MDA play.
August 1, 2008
Crusher (clue 1), Whizzer (5), and Rocket (7) were the Terrors who knocked out in some order the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Magic dodgeballers. The Magic players hit on the head (1), arm (5), and back (7) were in some order the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Magic dodgeballers to exit the floor. By clue 2, then, the player nipped on the leg was hit by Easy and must be the 1st Magic player to fall. By clues 1, 5, and 7, Hips, Smash, and Bullet were in some order the first three Magic players eliminated. Since Smash wasn't hit on the leg (2), Smash was 2nd or 3rd to be hit. Trying Smash as the 3rd Magic dodgeballer to go out, the player struck on the arm would have been 4th and the player hit by Whizzer 5th to fall (5). Either Hips or Bullet would have been 2nd out. If Hips were 2nd and Bullet then 1st, the player bopped on the head would have been eliminated 3rd and the Magic player struck by Crusher's throw 4th (1); and the Magic star hit on the back would have been hit 2nd and the Magic dodgeballer hit by Rocket would have been 3rd out (7). By elimination, Hips would have been hit on the back by Lucky--no (3). If Bullet were 2nd and Hips then 1st to be eliminated, the Magic player struck on the back would have been hit 3rd and the Magic dodgeballer hit by Rocket would have been 4th out (7); and the player hit in the head would have been eliminated 2nd and the Magic player struck by Crusher's throw 3rd (1). By elimination, the player hit on the foot would have been eliminated by Whizzer. The Magic player hit on the foot wasn't Ace (6), who would have been hit by Rocket--no (4). So, Smash wasn't eliminated 3rd and was 2nd to go. Then by clues 1 and 7, either Hips was 1st and Bullet 3rd or Bullet was 1st and Hips 3rd to fall to a Terror ball. If Bullet had been 1st and Hips 3rd to go out, the player taking the head shot would have fallen 4th and the Magic player hit by Crusher 5th (1); the one eliminated by an arm hit would have gone out 3rd and Whizzer's victim 4th (5); and the player struck on the back would have been hit 2nd and Rocket would have hit Hips on the arm 3rd (7). By elimination, the player hit on the back would have been hit by Lucky--no (3). So, Hips was 1st to be eliminated, with Bullet 3rd to fall. Then the player hit on the back was out 4th and the Magic star struck by Rocket fell 5th (7); the player who took the arm hit went out 3rd and Whizzer's victim 4th (5); and the dodgeballer struck on the head fell 2nd and the Magic player hit by Crusher 3rd (1). By elimination, Smash fell when Lucky hit him in the head; and Rocket hit his Magic victim on the foot. The latter is Killer and the one hit in the back is Ace (6). In sum, the Magic dodgeball team was eliminated in order by the Terrors as follows:

  • 1st -- Hips hit on the leg by Easy
  • 2nd -- Smash hit on the head by Lucky
  • 3rd -- Bullet hit on the arm by Crusher
  • 4th -- Ace hit on the back by Whizzer
  • 5th -- Killer hit on the foot by Rocket
