The Jefferson State Maidens of Mayhem skated their way to their second win Saturday in a home bout against the Battle Born Derby Demons of Reno.

The final score of the more than three hour bout was 202-157. Spectators packed the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds building to enjoy the high-energy sport.

Despite rough collisions and some intense crashes, most women got back up quickly, with the exception of Derby Demon “Beat-Her Venkman,” who was escorted from the track by Yreka Fire Department personnel with an injury to her leg.

The crowd cheered as “jammers” scored points by breaking through the blockers and lapping opposing team members as they skated the track.

Penalties were called for fouls like grabbing opposing players, hitting with forearms, elbows or fists, tripping, kicking, pushing or shoving opposing players, headbutting, hitting from behind, or blocking the jammer too far from the rest of the pack.

“At the half time we were 98-95, Jefferson State,” said team spokesperson Sara Klebig, also known as Maxy McCrusher. “At the start of the second half, Battle Born came back with a strong wall and quick jammers to take a 20 point lead, however, Jefferson fought back, stepped up their game and took the lead by mid-second half and never gave it up with power jams coming strong from Diva Destruction (Mount Shasta’s Jessica Vickers) and Locked & Logan'd (Mount Shasta’s Logan Castle).

To round out the team, the Maidens “borrowed” skaters from other neighboring leagues, explained Klebig.

“We bout leagues that can be anywhere from one to five hours away,” she said. “Which is why sponsorship can be vital for local business, in Yreka especially. At least three times a year we host home bouts! The skaters need a hotel, food, etc. There are generally about 30 people that travel with any one team.”

After the bout, awards are traditionally handed out. The recipients are chosen by the opposing teams, said Klebig.

Mazel Tough Cocktail (Anastacia Ciau of Sacramento) took home the “Best Blocker/Corporal Punishment” award; Locked & Logan’d received the “Most in the Penalty Box/Private Penalty” award; Diva Destruction received the “Best Jammer/Brave Heart” award; and Snap Shots (Tara Crupi of Redding Area Derby) took home the MVP/Sharp Shooter award.

Other Jefferson State skaters include Annie Filth, Dana Skully, Gore Jus, Moxie Speed Bean, Reckless Reg, Whip-A-Ho, Megatron, Zulu Mutha Smutha and Outlaw Angel.

The Scott Valley Rotary Club provided beer for the event and entertainment at half time was by Siskiyou Dance Company.

Referees were Bones McBreakin’, Sir Sk8’s A Lot, Out of Order, Ivanna Ryder, Greaser Scott, Jingles and Dogg. Mark Herman and Naughty Maudie did the announcing.

A portion of the proceeds from the “Red, White and Bruised” bout went to the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden.
