Pussin Tiristäjät (PuTi) got the better of Reading Ultimate in a thrilling quarter-final encounter at the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) World Ultimate Club Championships in Ohio in the United States.

The mixed team duel went back and fourth as PuTi of Finland sought to put themselves at an arms length of their British foes, but Reading Ultimate refused to go away.

After taking an 8-7 lead into the second-half, the Finns lost the initiative and Reading Ultimate suddenly secured a marginal 11-10 advantage at the Lebanon Sports Complex.

Nevertheless, PuTi invoked their winners mentality to turn the game on its head again and established a crucial two-point lead in the dying embers of the match.

This gap proved to be sufficient as they sealed a 14-12 triumph to advance to the semi-finals where they will play Canada's Red Flag.
