The game started with an early Charm lead, but that faded over the next few jams and became a 28-6 Philly lead after an 18 point power jam for Teflon Donna.

Twelve minutes into the first period, Charm City captain I.M. Pain came down hard after a big hit to the inside. Play was briefly stopped while Pain was attended by medical staff. She returned to the game with just under 10 minutes remaining in the first half, her right arm supported by the better part of a roll of duct tape.

Philly maintained a respectable 30-40 point lead for most of the first period until a 29-0 I.M. Pain jam, when a strong Charm pack held Antidote for the duration. Following this a late call-off by Philly’s Devoida Mercy allowed Charm newcomer Nuckin’ Futz to grab a couple of points at the whistles and Charm City took a 79-78 lead going into halftime.

That lead would vanish under very similar circumstances with Vanessa Sites (formerly V-Diva) capitalizing on a late call from I.M. Pain in the opening jam of the second period. A 36-point run for Philly restored the lead they’d held for much of that first half, and they never fell behind again.

Charm saw penalty trouble in the second period, seeing 28 minutes to Philly’s 15. The Liberty Belles took advantage of that gap and maintained a respectable lead. With 5 minutes left in the game, leading 170-129, Philly’s Devoida Mercy capitalized on a power jam and a pack advantage to bring the score to 199-129. Philly’s Vanessa Sites and Teflon Donna closed the game out 231-129.

MVP for Philadelphia was Olivia Face. Uvetta Work and I.M. Pain were the MVPs for CCRG.
