Oct. 22 2016 » Home Team Championship Doubleheader
At 5 p.m., the Cosmonaughties will take on the Nutcrackers for 3rd place. When these teams last met in July, the Cosmos won by 21 points. This extended their undefeated record against the Nuts, which they’ve maintained for 4 seasons. Since July, both teams have made some adjustments to their rosters, including a veteran New Hampshire Roller Derby transfer to the Nutcrackers, Janelle Ellison, who has quickly established herself as a top jammer on the team. Will this new talent give the Nuts the edge they need over the Cosmos, or will the Cosmos preserve their undefeated record against the ballerina bruisers?
The Harbor Horrors and the Wicked Pissahs finish off the night with a battle for 1st place at 7:00 p.m. Both teams have a history of winning championships. When the Horrors first spawned in 2013, they took the Golden Fez Cup with a 1-point victory over the Cosmonaughties, and then repeated this same feat the next year—again with a thrilling 1-point win. Up until the Horrors took the cup in 2013, the Wicked Pissahs had been reigning champs every year since BRD’s first championship game in 2006—aside from 2009 when the Nutcrackers won their first, and thus far only, championship title. The Wicked Pissahs are undefeated so far this season, but the Harbor Horrors have been strengthening their gameplay and they proved in the September playoffs that they’re ready to take on a behemoth. With both teams eager to bring the Fez Cup back home this year, you won’t want to miss a hit!
