In the battle for 11th place, #11 Columbia QuadSquad faced off with #9 No Coast Derby Girls in a game that can only be described as whiplash-inducing. From the start, both teams exchanged lead repeatedly through the duration of the game, sometimes multiple times in the same jam. It was unclear who would take this fierce, penalty-heavy game as these teams were extraordinarily evenly matched. This was the case through the very last jam, but Columbia ultimately clinched victory, winning 167-156.
Game 17, between #44-ranked Jet City and #49-ranked No Coast started out with two leads by No Coast followed by a point swing by Jet City. Jet City then held the lead for the rest of the game, but No Coast was sure to make them work for it.
Jammer penalties kept No Coast from making much traction in the first half. But strong and consistent jamming by Slam carried them through the second half, almost to victory. Jet City’s commitment to offense and capitalization of power jams kept them on top, and after a tough battle, Jet City knocked No Coast out of the tournament with a win of 182-163.
