In the first game of the 2013 season playoffs, The Denim Demons, ranked second in the league, and the Apocalystix, ranked third, came out hitting hard. In their fight for a spot in the Championship Bout next month, both teams started off strong, with slow and tight defensive walls, and excellent jamming from each team’s reserve. The Stix lead a few minutes into the game, as Nora Gretz, Belle of the Brawl, and Bruze Orman racked up points for the ladies in pink, and Stix blockers, lead by Rudy Huxtabrawl, held the Demon jammers at bay. The game stayed close for the first fifteen minutes, but a pivotal power jam around the 15-minute mark turned the tide for the Demons. The Demon defensive wall, anchored by All-Stars Queen Looseyateefa, Ozzie Kamakazi, Wild Cherri, and Switchblade Siouxsie was all but immovable going into the second half, and the score gap widened. The Stix never quit, but they couldn’t quite catch the Demons, who dominated the second half. With their resounding win, the girls in denim are headed to the Champ Bout!
Players of the game were Slamborgini and Bruze Orman for the Stix (blocker and jammer respectively), and TagHer Lily (blocking) and ChokeCherry (jamming) for the Demons.
