#63 St. Chux Falls Late To #51 Chicago Outfit

by Brian Ledford

(CHICAGO, IL) The primary travel squad of the St. Chux Derby Chix, currently ranked #63 internationally by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), battled mightily against #51 Chicago Outfit Saturday night but suffered a 240-194 setback at Windy City Fieldhouse.

Trailing 13-0 after the first three jams, SCDC captain Jedi Knight-N-Gale posted a 14-point strike in the ensuing rotation that gained the Pack in Black a 14-13 scoreboard flip.

Both teams traded points as the first period progressed but a late 30-7 run by the Outfit in the half’s final five jams gave the hostesses a slim 103-96 lead at intermission.

In the second period, a stingy SCDC blocking schema, braced by Big Red, Blue Collar Brawler, PIxie Dust-Ruction and others, propelled a 30-point power jam launch by Knight-N-Gale that resulted in a 126-103 lead change.

Chicago Outfit quelled the momentum shift with a 31-4 run over the next four jams and regained the lead 134-130.

Deep into the contest, SCDC stayed close to the Outfit on the ledger but a 24-point strike by Chicago jammer Ice Hurt on the period’s penultimate jam sealed victory for the Syndicate.

The Outfit outscored St. Chux, 137-98, in the second half to notch the win and improve to 2-4.

Knight-N-Gale topped SCDC scoring with 128 points followed by Sha’Killa’s 23.

St. Chux returns to home play at Matteson Square Garden in St. Peters on July 9.
