Memorial Hall- Saturday, December 10th saw The Winter Wonder Slam mini tournament. It was non sanctioned and played just for the fun of it. The tournament was co-ed and attracted players from area leagues and as far away as New York. It gave a chance for skaters who don't normally get to play together to get one last derby fix before the holiday rush and the new season begins.
The first game was between The Tinseled Tormentors and Reindeer Meat. After thirty minutes of game play, Reindeer Meat would move on to the next bracket as they spanked the Tormentors 196 to 12.
Next up were The Nasty Grinches against The Naughty List. You may be a mean one Mr. Grinch, but you're no match for The Naughty List who went on to the second round with a score of 202 to 46.
The third game of the day was between Sparkle Motion and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Sparkle Motion became the worst nightmare as they shined on to a victorious 194 to 27.
First round eliminations ended with The Deadly Sirens taking on RBF. There was not a lot of resting on the part of RBF as the won their second round spot 157 to 32.
Second round eliminations started with Reindeer Meat going up against The Naughty List. Reindeer Meat became minced meat as The Naughty List unwrapped their second victory, 96 to 33.
Sparkle Motion was denied their chance to shine in the last few jams as RBF claimed the chance to play The Naughty List for the tournament title, 107 to 95.
The final bracket saw The Naughty List take on RBF for all the marbles. The Naughty List proved to be the force to be recconed with as they sent RBF packing their toys aand going home with a score of 185 to 54.
Throughout the tournament, the players would nominate an MVP blocker and jammer from each team. These players formed a team after the tournament for an exhibition bout against the 2017 All-Stars.
