Carolina upsets Tucson, 80-73
Posted by Justice Feelgood Marshall on September 29, 2007
So far in Austin, Texas, it’s two upsets in two bouts, as Carolina and Tucson played an amazingly tight game that seemed to be tied every five minutes. In the last six minutes of the bout, a rare star pass from Carolina’s Betty Rumble to Eva Lye proved to be the margin of victory as Eva Lye ran up a grand slam behind some smothering defense from her blockers… but still, the last jam of the bout was a nailbiter as Tucson was down by 7 points with 1:30 to play and Carolina jammer Princess America starting the jam in the penalty box. The Carolina defense would step up, though, and kept Tucson’s jammer Tombstone Teri from getting through on her opening pass.
Carolina will go up against Kansas City tomorrow at 11am, with the winner heading to the championship bout.
I likely won’t be updating posts for the rest of the evening, as I’m working these last two bouts, but check for final scores in the sidebar and look for detailed recaps of Saturday action tomorrow morning. Be sure to hit leadjammer.com’s liveblog for up-to-the-instant score updates!
