Dow Jones Average Wins Initial Bout!

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.
