In jam 11, Miley Virus blew open Dallas’ lead on a boxed Maya Mangleyou, as Boston tried to race packs to negate scoring. Dallas, however, used their own speed and precise individual offensive hits to only benefit Cyrus’ pace, resulting in a 24-2 jam. Late in the period, Boston tried using star passes and designated offense on jam starts to limit Dallas, but were unable to mount any real offensive runs against the higher seed.
Period 2 kicked off in a similar fashion, with Space Invader for Boston and Anita Riot for Dallas, and Riot grabbing 6-0. Boston returned to the track clearly motivated to find what would work against Dallas. They varied their defensive formation on the start by setting up at the pivot line and hoping to pull a defender off Dallas’ to bridge, but Dallas used this to their advantage by gaining more speed before hitting their cube, again dominating lead designation. Dallas appeared to have every answer to their opponents as they held Boston to a single point over the next five jams, and generally only gave up points in swapped power jams.
Overall, Boston gave up nine power jams to Dallas’ six and earned only three more penalties at 32, vs 29. Miley Virus contributed 66 points over 12 jams, compared to HardCore’s 15 points over five jams. The game closed with a decisive 245-79 win for higher-seed Dallas, and the bracket remaining accurate with the 5 and 6 ranks, respectively.
