Ypsilanti Vigilantes End Home Season with a Win in Overtime

August 6 was an epic final home bout of the 2016 season! The Ypsilanti Vigilantes hosted the Killamazoo Kill Squad. Kill Squad started out very strong, taking the lead for the first six jams. The Vigilantes nibbled their way to stay in the game, and took over the lead by the seventh jam of the first half. Smart call-offs by the Vigilante jammers and great offense by their blockers kept the Vigilantes in the lead, going into the half with a score of 118-91.
