Denim Demons 152
Sake Tuyas 98
This bout marked two exciting events for the Demons – Queen Loseyateefa was returning from a broken leg, and it was the debut bout of Gotham transfer Wild Cherri! They used this momentum to steadily build up a sizeable lead in the first half. Sakes used a three-jammer rotation for most of the bout consisting of The Merchant of Menace, Hollicidal, and Wheelin Jennings. Those top jammers had to face off against Demon walls containing powerhouse blockers Queen Loseyateefa, Ozzie Kamakazi, Switchblade Siouxsie, and Wild Cherri. The first half ended with the score 74-22 with the Demons in the lead. The second half included more crushing hits by the Demons, but about mid-way through, penalty trouble for the Demons allowed the Sakes to put some points on the board. Wild Cherri demonstrated some textbook apex jumps, which really got the crowd pumped up. In the last jam, Hollicidal was able to capitalize on a power jam to get the Sakes 22 more points, but it wasn’t enough for a win. Demons won with a score of 152-98.
