Preliminaries 2: Cop vs. Cop
May 19

Itís a special 7-event all-cops AG extravaganza.  Even more special is that both match-ups are intra-precinct.  First up is the men representing Chicagoland.

Melvin Davis
5í10Ē 203 lbs

David Moore
5í11Ē 215 lbs

Round 1 is Powerball.  Melvin is 10 years senior to David, but Toa, Justice, and Titan are out to show pain knows no age.  One minute later, and the Gladsí stranglehold on this event continues, as each player only gets 1 point.  (Thatís 6 goals in 3 plays)

Letís hope Denverís finest fare better in their opener.

Abbe Dorn
5í6Ē 152 lbs

Vicki Ferrari
5í3Ē 124 lbs

They start with the new Rocket Ball.  Jet and Phoenix man the defense, but it doesnít seem like they showed up.  A last-second red goal gives the contenders 5 each, but one of Abbeís was a 2-pointer, which ends up being the difference.  Itís 6-5 after 1.

Back to the men for Round 2, itís the Joust and the undefeated Titan.  He knocks David to his knees, and the cop canít get back up, eventually DQíing himself by touching the other platform.  Melvin did worse.  One shot, one kill means itís still 1-all after 2.

Hang Tough is event 2 for the ladies.  Venom is on the prowl.  Abbe is able to pass by the Glad and avoid conflict long enough for 5 points.  Vicki isnít so lucky.  One splashdown later, itís now 11-5.

Round 3 has our first non-split event.  Itís Earthquake, now over water.  The men have to square off against Toa (who can actually talk), but both are able to take him down.  Granted, the contenders go with him, but thatís still 10 points and an 11-all tie.  The unblemished Crush mans the circle for the women, and after 3 lost helmets, both female cops draw.  Abbe keeps a 16-11 advantage.

The 2nd half for the men starts with the Gauntlet.  Our Big Bad Four tonight is Toa, Wolf, Militia, and Justice.  David isnít impressed and he shows it.  He blows by the Glads and gets the full 10 points in only 12.1 seconds.  Melvin is not so lucky.  Instead of breaking a speed record, he breaks a futility record, only mustering 4 points.  David takes the first lead of the match, 21-15.

Round 4 for the women is Assault, and that means Hellga is at the gun.  Abbe gets through the slingshot, turret, bazooka, crossbow, and grenades, but canít hit the final button before time expires.  She only manages 5.  Vicki times out after 4 weapons, so Abbeís lead is extended to 21-14.

No more splits from here on out.  Event #5 is the new Skytrack, only this time, itís a chase and a race.  The contenders need to complete the figure eight track in one minute or less and avoid being tagged by the Glads.  Wolf and Militia are the chasers, and it doesnít take them too long to pull the ripcords attached to the contendersí tracks.  Jet and Crush are just as successful for the other side, so all scores stay the same.

The final event for points is the big bad Wall.  Rocket is after David, and on Melvinís tail is a new Gladiator.  Itís AGís enigmatic Zen.  Rocket has some fun with his prey before yanking him off.  Zen, on the other hand, just decides to get up under Melvin and halt his progress all together before taking him down.  Venom and Phoenix arenít as flashy with the women, but Abbe is on the fast track to at least 5 points, but her grip gives way with seconds to go, making it another scoreless event.

Heading into the Eliminator, Abbe leads Vicki 21-14, and David leads Melvin 21-15.

We start with the menís Eliminator.  Davidís 3-second lead balloons and hits the Travelator at the 4 minute mark, but the lead evaporates into a back-and-forth battle.  David is actually able to crawl to the top of the treadmill, but canít get over.  After another 6 minutes of Hell, Melvin makes a breakthrough.  Davidís up soon after, but itís too late.  Melvin is the finest of Chicagoís finest with a time of 10:28.  On the womenís side, Abbeís 3.5-second advantage is rock solid and despite a minor hold-up at the end, she wins the Battle of Denver in 2:58.

Six of the top 12 spots are filled, but thereís still 34 contenders left to go.  Tune in again next week for more Monday Night Gladiators.
