(Detroit, MI)-  With a repeat Eastern Division C hampionship under their belt, Detroit has their eye on the prize, the National Championship Ron Newman Cup, but first they have to go through Cincinnati to get it.  Detroit WAZA has faced the Cincinnati Kings three times this season beating them 9-8 in Cinci, 8-4 at home, and again, 5-3 in Saturday's home game, yet an intense rivalry still exists between the two veteran teams.
