SIOUX CITY, IA–The New York Shock Exchange and St. Louis Gatekeepers wrote another chapter in their storied rivalry with a back-and-forth battle that went down to the final jam. A two-point margin with two-minutes to go left the outcome in doubt–but a lead jammer call for Jonathan R secured the Shock Exchange both the win and a date with Your Mom in the MRDA Championships’ final.

The crowd was getting louder and louder at Brooklyn’s Abe Stark Arena in Coney Island, the New York Shock Exchange had battled back from a 53 point deficit to take a one point lead, and Your Mom Men’s Roller Derby team, the defending MRDA champions, were on the ropes with a little over 20 minutes left to play in Saturday’s bout.

The first time the New York Shock Exchange met Your Mom Men’s Roller Derby team at the Spring Roll tournament in May of 2012, the Iowans were the upstarts, the (fairly) new kids on the block, while the New Yorkers were the top-ranked team in the world and the defending MRDA champions.
