(WINDSOR, ON) – The home teams for the Border City Brawlers met on the flat track Saturday in front of another packed house of more than 600 fans. The league champions from 2012, the 519ers, came out unscathed.
The first half was dominated by the 519ers but in the last jam the Hiram Stalkers’ Drop Dead Alice (Lauren Larocque) scored 25 points to close the lead to 70-61. In the second half the Stalkers were able to take the lead but the 519ers could not be held back for long. The final score was 143-113 for the 519ers.
MVPs for the Hiram Stalkers were Drop Dead Alice as best jammer and Pain Eyre (Kate Hargreaves) the best blocker. MVPs for the 519ers were Mod Broad (Anne Marie Romanko) as best jammer and Ginny Wheelsly (Dana Seguin) who’s blocking and defence held the jammers back.
As part of their on-going commitment to the community, the Brawlers invited the Youth of Brentwood to the game, and the visitors were on the edge of their seats during the action-packed bout.
