It was a dogfight in Pittsburgh between #14 Bear City and #15 E-Ville, facing off for the first time for the chance to take on #5 Oklahoma and a shot at 7th place. Bear City commanded lead jammer status through much of the game but was undone by a series of high-scoring jams from Shania Pain, as the E-Ville jammer put up 133 points to guide their team to a 207-187 victory.
In a nail-biter of a game, #10 seed Pirate City took on #14 seed Bear City. Both teams were coming off of losses yesterday and came out of the gate looking to clench today’s victory.
While Bear City held lead for the majority of game, Pirate gave them a run for their money, slowly closing the lead a bit at a time until the game was tied at 241 when the game clock expired. However, in the overtime jam, a trip to the penalty box for Pirate City allowed Bear City to collect points, ultimately winning 275-253. Bear City will play E-Ville later this evening at 6:30pm EDT
