In one of the most exciting finishes in LA Derby Dolls history, the up-and-coming Swarm stung the Fight Crew during the closing moments on Saturday night in front of a packed house at the Doll Factory. Fight Crew's Chargin' Tina was ejected from the game by the referees with just 9 seconds remaining and the score tied, leaving her team with no jammer. The Swarm took advantage of the opportunity with a 3-point jam to win the contest 118-115 as the crowd shreiked their approval.
