Winnwood Skate Center-Wednesday, June 15th
Dorothys vs. Susans - This marked the last Underground game along with the end of regular home season. Although the Dreadnought Dorothys have secured their spot in The Rink of Fire, there was still one more game to play. The last time these two teams squared off against each other was back in February and The Dorothys won 178 to 152.
Both teams seemed evenly matched going into the game. The Dorothys were down Anya Neezenbeg, Cupcake Smasher and Road Hash but Eve Illness formerly of Palm Coast and Golden Meanie finally made her return. The Susans were missing Estee Slaughter, Morella Warfare and Peter Babriel but they had two new additions with Socka Jo Mama formerly of Fort Meyers and Turtle Power formerly of Salina and Veteran City.
The game got off to a slow start offensively but then, early in the period, Turtle Power got a 25 point power jam and it was looking glum for The Dorothys. Later in the period, Dr. Dread would get a power jam of her own and move The Dorothys to a closer deficit. By the end of the period, The Dreadnought Dorothys had taken the lead with 78 to 77.
Tuff Noogies must have given an inspiring locker room speech because The Susans came back for the second half and just got their momentum going and dominated. By the time the final whistle blew, The Black Eye Susans had won 167 to 126.
Personally, I find it amusing that the only times The Susans have won has been when they were in fourth place and playing the first place team. Not quite sure what to make of it, but it makes for an interesting game.
Don't forget to join us on June 27th at Municipal Auditorium when The Dreadnought Dorothys will take on The Victory Vixens for the trophy and The Knockouts will battle The Black Eye Susans for third place.
