Doors at 6pm - Bout at 7pm
Treo Roller Rink
721 Gagel Ave
Louisville, KY
$10 in advance/$15 at the door

This should make for one of the most exciting bouts so far for a variety of reasons: the normally dominating Jackies are saddled with injuries and a short bench due to retirement and baby-makin but are still chock full of undeniably talented and determined team players. Meanwhile the FORMER would-be underdogs, the Red Menace are bringing a nearly full squad, ALL of which show immense improvement everytime they take the floor, not to mention a new and noticeable swagger of confidence that should be making some Jackies nervous.

The Menace are motivated for this win. The Jackies will have to make incredibly strategic moves on the floor and in their lineups with all the "walking wounded" plus keep out of the penalty box to stop the onsluaght of the depth and motivation of the Menace. Both teams will beneft from the return of some key players that have been out: Maul St. Matthews and Da 'Ville-Ann come back to the Jackies while the MaMalicious (Co-captain) and Olivia Hurtin (I think) are back on the Red Menace roster.

Last I heard, the bout is schedule for 3, 15 min periods on this card. Expect to see some big hits and keep your ears open for some shit-talking in this game as there's rivalry, revenge, and bragging rights tied into this bout. I predict this bout to be a low-scoring defensive battle that will be within 10 points until the last 7 minutes of the last period...but the win could go to either team.
