Winner: Varsity Pizza
South Side/SU Hill Championship Game
(1) Swallow's "Hot" wings: 5 points
(2) Varsity Pizza's "Hot" wings: 0 points
Even though Swallow's wings were under-matched in Game 1, it wouldn't take much for them to pull out a win in this match-up. Varsity's meat and wing size were above average and on par with Swallow's, but suffered a shutout in every other category. It's hard to fault Swallow's in any aspect with a great amount of uniquely flavorful sauce, peppery garlic wings that were some of the hottest in the tournament, excellent crispness, and a separate bin filled with chunky blue cheese and big pieces of fresh celery. No battle in this one. Swallow's wins hands down with completely original, spicy, and superior all-around wings and easily deserve the title of best wings in this bracket.
Winner and champion of the Southside/SU Hill bracket: Swallow's
In the final round, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que will take on Change of Pace, and Nibsy's Pub faces Swallow's, with winners advancing to the championship game. It should be a tight race.
