DALLAS, TX – The consolation game between the Philly Liberty Belles and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk Bombshells was a clash of two exceptionally disciplined defenses that never lost sight of each other. Jammers from both teams fought a war of attrition, with low scoring but long-running jams that left them either pushing against walls that wouldn’t budge or knocked out and dragged far behind the pack. Strong performances from Herrmann Monster and Buenos D. A$$ proved the deciding factor as Philly held on to defeat Santa Cruz 156-106.
