Good evening mister and missus derby fan and all the ships at sea. The second half of the Underground Game 2 featured The Victory Vixens taking on The Black Eye Susans. Some of you may be asking yourselves, Jack, what is this KCRW Underground you keep talking about? This is a new thing that the league just came up with this season. It's a way to make the season last a little longer and since they couldn't get all of the dates at Municipal Auditorium, they took it back to the roots of the first season. You can get tickets for these games right here on the website, they're only $5.00 a game. The only catch is that you have to buy tickets for all of the Underground games not just individually. The good news is that the price drops with each game so don't feel like you have to pay full season prices for half a season. Don't feel like waiting for the monthly bout? Work weekends? Check out the Underground games and get your derby fix, otherwise, you just have to read about it. Speaking of reading about it...
The Vixens were looking to keep their momentum going after the win against The Knockouts and The Susans were looking for their first victory. The Vixens pulled an early lead in the first period when Mayhem Myers had a 24 point power jam in jam 3. The Susans were unable to rally back and at halftime as the score looked dismal with The Vixens leading 76 to 34. When the second period got underway, The Susans offense started getting a little more offensive. They managed to close the gap a little until Jam 11 when Enigma Fitzgerald had a power jam and turned over the lead 113 to 111. Unfortunately for The Susans, things turned back around and by the end of the game The Victory Vixens were living up to their name with a final score of 136 to 113.
