Congratulations to TCDG’s Dead Ringers, who bring home a WIN from Decatur in their first official away bout under their new name!
The Punishers have been hard at work building up their All-Stars team over the last year, and that work showed on Saturday night at the Decatur Civic Center! Strong pack work from both teams kept scores low, with many jams ending at 0-0.
Twin City’s jammer roster included rookie jammers Sasha Smashmouth and Jamma Wockee, both making strong showings in that role. TCDG appeared to dominate early, though the Punishers took advantage of a power jam to jump forward and take the lead for a short time. TCDG wasted no time in taking advantage of their power jams as well as some strategically-timed star passes to bring in jammers Brass Monke and Bunny McBones. The first half ended with TCDG ahead, 96-56.
The Punishers came back strong in the second half to match TCDG nearly point for point, threatening a lead change throughout the half. Despite some impressive jamming by Bambi Bloodlust and Amanda Tori Suicide though, the Punishers couldn’t get the lead back. Final score was 169-126.
