A lead change back and forth victory that was pulled out of the jaws of defeat on the very last jam with the Slaughter Daughters down 83 to 67 for Gore Gore with 16 seconds left. Soul Rekker facing off against Bambi, then Bambi [starting off on the line with two minors to her name and number, then called for a false start minor] sent to the box on a minor backblock [and her fourth minor probably not seen by viewers on the Canuck Derby TV]. Which left Soul Rekker on the powerjam to score one grand slam, then another, and another. 83 to 81 Gores. But it wasn’t over yet. Then another grand slam by DDT. The crowd going crazy.
FInal score 87 to 85. Undefeated Slaughter Daughters tame the Beast.
