BELOIT, Wis. — The Lafayette Brawlin’ Dolls overcame a 33-point halftime deficit to take the lead early in the second half, but the Beloit Bombshells blew the game open over the final 15 minutes in a 246-174 final Saturday evening.

LBD welcomed back Arwen Leavin’ Scars, who recently moved to Nashville, and added visiting skater Trauma Cass from the South Shore Roller Girls to its travel roster to give the team a 10-skater lineup Saturday. But the home team had a bit more depth, and that coupled with the final four power jams going in favor of the Bombshells proved to be the difference in the game. Additionally, Dreaded Thunder and Trauma Cass fouled out for the Brawlin’ Dolls in the second half after being whistled for seven penalties apiece.

LBD opened the second half on 38-0 run thanks to successful power jams for Trauma Cass and Mad-eye Molly. It was Mad-eye’s extended 29-point power jam that gave LBD a 105-100 lead, its first advantage since starting the second jam of the night with a 4-0 edge.

But Beloit answered with a 32-3 run over the next six jams to surge ahead again. Another 14-point power jam by Mad-eye helped the Brawlin’ Dolls get back into the game, making the score 140-130 just before the midpoint of the second half. But the Bombshells blew the game open from then on, outscoring LBD 106-44 the rest of the game. And 20 of LBD’s 44 points during that stretch came from Psycho Socializer on an extended final jam.

Coquette Threat’s 14-2 scoring advantage on a power jam late in the first half cut the Brawlin’ Dolls’ deficit to 71-57. The Beloit jammer was called for a double penalty to help cancel out what looked like it would be a power jam for the home team. But a pair of power jams late in the first half helped the Bombshells put together a 29-10 run to end the first half.

Thunder and Psycho each made it through the pack twice as the lead jammer in the first 15 minutes of the game for LBD’s top-scoring jams until Coque took advantage of her chance late in the half.
