The Double Crossers got their first win of 2015 Saturday night, outlasting the Manic Attackers, to whom they lost back in February, to take third place.

Trainor quickly went to the box for a track cut, giving the Double Crossers a power jam. A slow pack allowed Lucy Wreckardo to score 19 and solid blocking kept Trainor from scoring after being released.

Both teams came out of the gate swinging. In the first jam, Hat Trixxxie, jamming for The Fury, went to the box for a track cut. Almost immediately, Killjoy, jamming for the Hell's Belles, went to the ...

After a little trouble from ...
