The Great Wall of DoomsDames

June 24, 2010

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Duke City Derby's home teams got their season off to a proper start on Saturday, June 19, holding the first official bouts of the season after last month's scrimmages.

In the first bout, the DoomsDames held off the Derby Intelligence Agency (DIA) for a 115 –85 win. Later the Ho-Bots pummeled the brand-new Taos Whiplashes, smacking them around for nearly the entire match on their way to a 195-74 victory.

The DoomsDames started to pull away early in their bout, taking the lead by outscoring DIA 22-0 in the third jam for the first points of the match. After that, the teams were only able to grab a few points per jam, and the Dames maintained about a 20-point gap. Then DIA scored 15 points with eight minutes left in the first half to reduce the DoomsDames' lead to 13. DIA continued to fight back, making the score 58-50 before the Dames scored the next seven points to take a 15-point lead at halftime.
