The second game the Wasatch Roller Derby hosted was between their two home teams, The Black Diamond Divas and the Hot Wheelers. At first, the Black Diamond Divas seemed to have taken the lead, but they were continuously trailed by the Hot Wheelers. In the first half, the Black Diamond Divas racked up a 34 point lead, thanks to Sookie Slaphouse, who scored 15 points in one jam. The Hot Wheelers were able to achieve lead jammer several times, with their jammer MegaStorm scoring 13 points. Once the second half of the Wasatch Roller Derby, the game started to heat up. Players were getting hit off the track left and right. In the eighth jam of the second half, Makillda was able to bring the Hot Wheelers into the lead with a score of 122 HW to 118 BDD. The Hot Wheelers were consistently battling for lead against BDD’s jammers. In jam 14, Wreckless and Makillda fought for lead, chasing and hip checking each other around the track. Once again, BDD took the lead, only to have the Hot Wheelers catch up in jam 19, where Makillda scored five points, giving the Hot Wheelers a one point lead (150-149). Everyone in the crowd was on the edge of their seats as each team continuously stole back the lead from the other. In the 21st jam, Wreckless put BDD back in the lead by scoring several points in a power jam, giving the Divas a 5 point lead (154-159). Although Stache Bot scored the highest points in both games with her jams, Makillda was the MVP jammer in the second bout in my opinion. She fought hard to help the Hot Wheelers gain the lead consistently against the Divas. In the last jam of the Wasatch Roller Derby, both jammers ended up going to the penalty box. With only thirty seconds left, the Divas were able to score one more point, winning the game 155-159.
