Memorial Hall- The race for The Tim Warder Cup has only three games to go. So far, The Knockouts remain undefeated, The Dreadnought Dorothys only have one loss, The Victory Vixens have one win and The Black-Eye Susans are still looking for their first win of the season.
Saturday, the doppelgangers played each other and there were a couple of surprises.
The first game of the double feature was between The Knockouts and The Black-Eye Susans. JessiKa Boom took the Jammer Line for The Knockouts against Jade Lightning who drew first blood with a 4 to 0 score. She would come back in the third, after Bear Knuckles had a draw against Sk8l Attraction, and score four more unanswered points against Little Miss Rampage. JessiKa Boom came out in the fourth and returned the favor in the form of five unanswered points against Bear Knuckles. The score now stood at Susans 8 Knockouts 5. Hateful SkEight managed to get Lead Jammer over Sk8l Attraction in the fifth and scored three unanswered points, bringing it up to 11 to 5 Susans. They would face off again in the eighth and this time Sk8l would get lead and after scoring 22 points, The Susans were only leading by 2 points. That would change in the ninth when Little Miss Rampage would beat Bear Knuckles out of the pack and put up 14 unanswered points bringing The Knockouts into the lead, 49 to 37. The girls in teal would continue to hold the lead despite The Susans best efforts. In the last Jam before Halftime, JessiKa Boom got Lead over Hateful SkEight and scored 28 points, cementing their lead 149 to 96.
The Susans put up a good fight, but just couldn’t get a rally to catch momentum. The final score was 273 to 179.

Game two saw The Dreadnought Dorothys take on The Victory Vixens. The Vixens won their first game in over a year on February 10th when they played The Susans. The score was 207 to 147, a nice healthy lead that they got by taking dominance of the game early.
Such was not the case this time around. Havok drew first blood for The Dorothys with four unanswered points. But then, in the second, Eve Illness tied things up with four unanswered points of her own. Things turned in The Dorothys favor in the third when Fantastic Beast got Lead Jammer over Shimmy Hendwrex and then Shimmy took a trip to the Penalty Box. The score was now 18 to 4 and The Vixens just could not rally. The final score was 230 to 104.
Coming up on the 16th will be the announcements of the mid-season draft at Side Pockets North and then on the 24th you’ll be able to see those new players in action back at Memorial Hall as the race for The Cup continues. Will The Knockouts keep their record in tact? You’ll have to show up to find out.
