Dot.Kamikazes Take Third in the Big One

After a 259-40 loss to the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls this morning, the Dot.Kamikazes rallied in the losers’ bracket to take third place in the Big One from the Humboldt Redwood Rollers.

SVRG went into the game missing a player, Pia Mess, whose ejection in the bout against the B.A.D. Girls carried over to the bout  against Humboldt. Humboldt jumped to a quick lead in the first few jams, but SVRG summoned their amazing endurance and started to lay down the points. SVRG secured the lead and ended the first half ahead, 69-44.

In the second half, Humboldt came back strong, and the teams traded off the lead several times. A rally in the last few minutes buoyed by strong jamming by Smack Dahlia and Death by Dollface and power blocking by MisTits (aka Cosmo Trouble) launched SVRG ahead of Redwood, ending in a 134-105 win.

Congratulations to the Dot.Kamikazes for a strong performance throughout the tourney, and thanks to the ladies of CCRD for hosting us at this amazing tournament! Special thanks to Derby News Network for helping the viewers at home keep up with the action!
