Sake Tuyas 136
The theme was The Rolling Dead, but these teams were very much alive and hungry for a win! It was the season debut of the Sake Tuyas, and the Apocalypstix’ chance for their first win of the season. Although the Stix were out several players due to injury, they rallied and presented a formidable force on the track. Early in the first half, the Sake jammer went to the box and Bruze Orman scored a 35-point jam for the Stix! Not only were the Sakes down in points, they also had some trouble staying out of the penalty box. Tough blocks by Rudy Huxtabrawl and Harper Lethal kept the Sakes solidly behind at the half, with a score of 123-64.
The Sakes came out of halftime with a new plan – tiny jammer Ruby Chaos! She was able to squeak through the Stix walls for several lead jammer calls. The Stix answered back with their own tiny jammer, Afro Dykee. The Sakes played catch up, but the Stix were able to maintain the lead and control of the game. It was an epic bout, ending with the Stix winning by 30 points. The 2011 League Champions were defeated, 2012 is a whole new ball game! (Except there’s no balls). 😉
Players of the Game were Afro Dykee for the Stix and Ruby Chaos for the Sakes.
