DLF, Grave Danger Win Again in February

Bout 2 saw rematches from last July’s Season 7 Championships, and with the same results– Grave Danger and Derby Liberation Front leaving the track with wins while the Throttle Rockets and Sockit Wenches taking home losses. After B2, both DLF and Grave Danger are 2-0, and the TRs and Wenches are 0-2.

The early bout, DLF v. Sockit Wenches, was a heck of a lot more aggressive and competitive than the final score of 194-88 would suggest. The Wenches showed the punishing, physical play that fans (and their opponents!) expect from them but DLF had phenomenal teamwork and was able to capitalize on power jam opportunities to take home the win.

The second bout was a rematch of the Season 7 title game, with the Throttle Rockets looking to avenge that loss against 2011 Champions Grave Danger. And, for the first 20 minutes, it looked they’d be able to get it, with the TRs rocketing out to a big 51-22 lead. But it truly was a game of momentum and it swung back and forth for the whole 60 minutes with ties and lead changes in each half. And at the last whistle: 137 Grave Danger, 102 Throttle Rockets.

Next month, we’ll see DLF and Grave Danger face off to see who’ll stay undefeated in 2012 and Sockit Wenches and Throttle Rockets play to fight for their first win at the Key this year. See you on March 24!

Congratulations to Bout 2 MVPs!
