FORT WAYNE, IN–Rose City and Cincinnati came into the 6p.m. game to fight for a place in the fifth place game. Rose duly delivered; a 109-point opening salvo killed Cinci off before they ever got going, and 68 Scald Eagle points in the final two minutes just served to add insult to injury. Scald ended up with 204 of Rose’s points in a 414-116 victory that saw the Wheels of Justice lose two players to injury.

FORT WAYNE, IN–At 10am on Saturday morning, Rose City took to the track against Grand Raggidy after both teams lost their Friday fixtures. While Rose lost by 3 points to London following a mighty second-half revival, Grand Raggidy had been destroyed by an on-form Wasatch team. A handful of first-half jammer penalties aside The Wheels of Justice dominated the opening period as they outscored the Grand Rapids team 10:1; they dominated the second period too, but an odd final jam saw Rose run up the margin but let their game rating slip as both jammers scored as the clock ran down. Rose finished comfortable 429-48 winners to progress; Grand Raggidy will play to avoid a last-place finish tomorrow morning.

FORT WAYNE, IN–The last time these two teams met, it was on Rose’s home track in Portland. The Wheels of Justice took a 49-point win that day–but since then, London switched out their two most-punished jammers that day for some fresh blood with Lexi Lightspeed and Lady Go-Go coming in for Flamin’ Aggro and Juicy Lucy. Rose City meanwhile welcomed back ex-WoJ captain Scratcher in the Eye.
