WOODBRIDGE, CT — After the visiting Assault City crew had just swamped the Connecticut B-team by 92 points in the undercard match of a doubleheader, the WFTDA-sanctioned main event between Connecticut (officially #12 in the WFTDA East, unranked nationally by DNN) and all-new WFTDA league Green Mountain (not yet ranked by either WFTDA or DNN) turned out to be a mirror image, favoring the home team. The halftime margin had CT up 82-18 (as opposed to the 81-15 score in the undercard) and the final saw Connecticut victorious by 95 points at 154-59, just a few points off the 141-49 final from the opener. Like the Yankee Brutals, the Stepford Sabotage went through a bit of a roster change in the offseason, including most notably, the promotion of some of last year’s Yankee Brutals.
WOODBRIDGE, CT — Connecticut’s B-team, the Yankee Brutals, debuted five skaters playing in their first games and immediately fell into a big hole against the more seasoned Assault City (Syracuse, NY), down 57-0 after ten jams on their way to a 141-49 loss. Despite some strong jams that breathed some life into the skates of the Yankee Brutals, Assault City took and held control from the start.
