The Toxic Shocks showed the world why they’re number one in Atlanta as they dominated over the Apocalypstix in the first bout of the double header on April 12. The Shocks’ deep jammer bench led by Jammunition and Jean Juke Picard, and knockout blocking by Alassin Sane and Scout SnipeHer ran up an early lead- halfway through the first half, the Shocks were in the lead 60-9. The Stix weren’t giving up, though. Rookie Luna Critz and blockers Ida Backoff and Madditude Adjustment proved that everyone is a jammer – each donning the star a few times, gaining lead at least once and putting more points on the board for the ladies in pink. They played as a true team, completing several crowd-pleasing star passes throughout the game. The score at the half was 94-47 for the Shocks.
The Shocks continued to outscore the Stix during the second half, capitalizing on Sitx jammer penalties. The Stix were fighting hard- Stix blocker Slamborghini took out Jammunition so hard, she had to give a nod of approval while calling the jam from the ground. The Shocks used tight walls and smart blocking to shut down the Apocalypstix, bringing home the win.
