On Saturday, November 17, 2012, The Charm City Roller Girls’ home team season reaches an unexpected cliff-hanger as the league’s undefeated teams face off. In the opening game, the Mobtown Mods (2-0) and the Junkyard Dolls (2-0) grapple for a perfect record in what is sure to be an explosive battle. While both teams use crushing defense and clever offensive plays to demoralize the competition, statistics indicate that the Dolls may have the advantage since they defeated the teams’ shared opponents by a larger margin and since the Dolls hold this season’s points per jam scoring record of 29 points. But with the Mods holding the lion’s share of the league’s vets and current All Star players, the outcome is anyone’s guess.
In the second game, the Night Terrors (0-2) confront Speed Regime (0-2) in a fight for redemption. Last season the Terrors soundly defeated Speed Regime twice on their road to the Donaghy Cup Championships. However, the tides have turned and the Terrors’ jammer-centric strategies have proven less effective against the tight walls of this year’s opponents. Speed Regime, who have intensified their overall pack play as well as gained two speedy transfers along with the return of two key vets, would love to capitalize on the Terrors’ missteps in an effort to exact revenge for seasons past.
