When hometeams the Apocalystix and the Sake Tuyas lined up against each other this past weekend, it was anyone’s guess who would come out on top. The Stix ended last season in last place, and the Sakes took second in the 2012 Champ bout. Both teams welcomed back legendary veteran skaters, Demi Gore for the Stix (coming out of retirement), and Amelia Scareheart for the Sakes (upon her return from France).
With their mix of strong rookies, veteran skaters, and the recently unretired, many predicted a very close game, but from the beginning this bout belonged to the Stix. Jamming in pink and black, Nora Gretz, Demi Gore, and Belle of the Brawl juked their way around the Sake walls, and blocker penalty trouble for the Sakes gave the Stix an edge. Though the Sake wall included formidable blockers like Agent Maulder and ICU Dead, the ninjas just couldn’t keep the Stix jammers in the pack. The Stix defensive wall did its job too, and though the likes of Sake jammers Wheelin’ Jennings and Hollicidal racked up points, it was never quite enough to catch up.
Final score was 222 Apocalypstix, 129 Sake Tuyas. Your MVPS were Demi Gore and Belle of the Brawl in pink, and Amelia Scareheart and Dee Lorean in red.[flickr]set:72157633137114184[/flickr]
