Dow Jones Average Wins Initial Bout!
On Saturday, October 8th, the NY Shock Exchange’s brand new B-team, the Dow Jones Average, occupied the Capital District Trauma Authority (Albany, NY) 194-91 at Skate Safe America in Old Bethpage, New York.
The bout began with the first jam going 0-0. The second jam was a different story. 2011 NYSE rookie Starsky #3 broke out a monstrous 29-0 with the aid of a strong pack of veterans holding the Capital District jammer at bay. Starsky would go on to win MVP honors for the Average. The DJA’s defense held the District to only 9 points for the first 16 jams. In jam 17, however, Capital Jammer Roarshock #8i8 fought through the pack multiple times to score a big 13 points. Roarshock was the team’s highest scoring jammer with 49 points and its most valuable player. The highest scoring jammer for the Average was Ace of Skates #2 with 65 points. The tough men from Albany continued to fight hard and put up a big 18-0 over a penalized DJA jammer in the last jam… but it was not enough. The Average proved they were mean with a 194-91 victory.
