A Texas-Sized Spanking

Muñecas tan the hides of the Dallas Derby Devils

It looked like every point was going to come at a punishing price.

In the early minutes, Duke City's Muñecas Muertas and the Dallas Derby Devils were locked in a defensive, hard-hitting bout at the Santa Ana Star Center. Then Muñecas’ star jammer Muffin drew first blood.
