Brawlstars Forge a Win in Rematch Against Steel City

The Ann Arbor Brawlstars were buzzing with excitement at the chance for a rematch against Pittsburgh’s Steel Hurtin’. The two teams first met in September 2016 at Division One playoffs, resulting in a close game. Although the Brawlstars held the lead at half time with a score of 144 to 115, Steel City’s experience at a higher level of play won through. The Brawlstars got into some jammer penalty trouble and Steel City brought back the game to end with a score of 205 to 258.
