In the second game of the double header on April 12, Atlanta’s Rumble Bs took command of the Hard Knox Rollergirls All-Stars from Knoxville, TN. Off the whistle, Bs’ jammer The Boss put 14 on the board, and our ladies in red held Knoxville scoreless for the first few jams. Hard Knox was able to put a handful of points up at a time, but the blocking prowess of the Bs, led by Madditude Adjustment and ICU Dead, made life hard for Knoxville jammers. They put up an amazing fight with Earth-shattering hits on Bs jammer Hate Ashbury, but weren’t able to mobilize their offense to close the scoring gap that was getting bigger each jam.
Just before halftime, Hard Knox rallied- blocking by Unsweet T and Wrecking Ball, along with smart jamming by Space Riot and Evil Lucia gave them a crowd-pleasing scoring run and enough momentum to send them into halftime with plans to dominate the second half. The halftime score was 103-62 for the Bs, and the second half was characterized by intense one on one blocking from both sides. A few ill-timed jam call offs by the Bs allowed Hard Knox to sneak points in several times. Although Hard Knox brought the hard hits and smart jamming, Bs superstar jammers Nora Gretz and Genie in a Battle proved too much to handle.
