Memorial Hall- The Rink of Fire is only two games away and the home teams are sweating it out to either keep their chance alive or cement their position. The Dreadnaught Dorothys are the only team unaffected by the evenings activities. They currently sit at the top of the heap, undefeated. The Black Eye Susans are sitting pretty in the second place position with two wins and two losses while The Knock-Outs and The Victory Vixens both have one win and three losses. If The Knock-Outs and Vixens win their games then Game 6 on the 22nd will be a free for all to see who plays The Dorothys. The Susans lost their last game so there may be some confidence issues or they could be looking for payback. The Knock-Outs won their first game in over a season last time so they will be hungry and ready to do it again. The Vixens have been in a slump since Game 2 and this will be their last chance for a shot at The Cup to make it a third consecutive year.
The first game of the evening was between The Black Eye Susans and The Victory Vixens. Rayna Pain lined up for The Vixens against Xcelerator to start the game and as the Jam came to an end, neither team had scored. That all changed in the second when Rogue put up 19 unanswered point for The Susans. Jam 6 saw the return of Track Rat as a blocker. Outside conflicts have kept her sidelined through most of the season, but she's back just when she is needed the most. She would go on to jam in the 18th in hopes of evening up the score as The Vixens were trailing 41 to 36 at that point but, she was not Lead Jammer so the Jam shut down with 0 points scored. By Halftime, The Susans were leading 122 to 66.
Track Rat came back out to jam again in the third but had to shut it down after scoring only four points, bringing The Vixens up to 73 to 148. In the 14th, it was Xcelerator who would go on a 25 point Power Jam and put The Susans past the double century mark, 206 to 129. At the end of the game, The Susans took their well deserved victory lap with a final score of 220 to 182.
The following game pitted The Knock-Outs against The Dreadnought Dorothys. It was another exciting start as Havok and Sk8l Attraction faced off at The Jammer Line neither one scored. JessiKa Boom would come out in the following Jam and put four points on the board for The Knock-Outs. Havok would come out in the 7th and set the pace of the game with a 10 point jam that would bring The Dorothys up to 12 to 7. Little Miss Rampage would try a late period rally with a 14 point Jam, bringing The Knock-Outs up to 23 to 72. The following Jam had Sk8l Attraction scoring 14 points as well, making the score 37 to 72. By Halftime however, The Dorothys were still leading 95 to 54.
In the second period, it was JessiKa Boom trying to rally her team with a 9 point jam, bringing the score up to 73 to 98, still in The Dorothys favor. In the 7th, Mel Malice came out with a 9 point Jam, proving that The Dorothys were not yet ready to give up, 111 to 73. The Knock-Outs finally broke the century mark in the 15th as JessiKa Boom went on a 19 point scoring run making it 105 to 136. Boom would go on make a valiant last stand in the final Jam with a 21 point scoring run, however, The Dorothys would still remain undefeated, 185 to 145.
