With names like Maulin Rouge, Slam Hathaway and Chase Windu, the New Jersey girls weren’t just all smiles, they were all about business when they got on the track. According to flattrackstats.com, NJRD was predicted to win over LVRG with an 83% chance, with the scoring ratio of 37 points for LVRG to 57 points for NJRD.

LVRG secured lead jammer status multiple times in a row and continued to capitalize on that point by point, bringing the score up to 62-33 (LVRG) with 8 minutes left in the first half.
