It was their last home bout of the season, and it showed from the first jam. The Sakes and the Stix both came out fighting in the 2013 Grudge Match, determined to win 3rd place in the league. For the Sakes, it was a chance to win their first league bout of the season, while the Stix looked to repeat their only win of the season, which was over the ninjas themselves. The Sakes came out jamming strong, with All-Stars Hollicidal (in her last game for the Sakes) and The Merchant of Menace tearing through Stix walls, and crowd favorite Wheelin’ Jennings juking up a storm. Rookie Sake jammer Fullatrix Lestrange showed how much she’s improved this season, and grabbed lead jammer over and over again for the Sakes — keep an eye on her in the 2014 season! It wasn’t all fun and games for the Sakes though, as Stix blockers Rudy Huxtabrawl and Axtual Malice landed some solid hits on the ladies in red. For their part, the Sake blockers set up slow, strong walls from the get go. Nora Gretz, Bruze Orman, and Belle of the Brawl in pink worked tirelessly to get through the likes of Agent Maulder, ICU Dead, and retiring-blocker Shannihilator but they never quite caught the Sakes, who were in the lead from the first jam. The Sakes dominated until the end, and capped off the 2013 season with a win.
MVPs were Fullatrix Lestrange (jammer) and Shannihilator (blocker) for the Sakes, and Nora Gretz (jamming) and Rudy Huxtabrawl (blocking) for the Stix.
