In game one, the California Quakes beat the Nevada Hot Dice 20-17.
The Atkinson/Loden romance was the big news of the game, much to the disappointment of "Little" Richard Brown, who made his return to the Nevada team roster.
In game two, the Florida Sundogs beat the California Quakes 26-21.
When a fight broke out between the Sundogs Denise Loden and the Quakes Stacey Blitsch, Quake captain Sean Atkinson took sides with his girlfriend Denise, much to the chagrin of his team.
In the final period of the game, the Sundog men were nearly all sidelined by injuries, Denise Loden opted to skate for the men's team. California's Rusty Montgomery bulldogged Denise, prompting teammate Sean Atkinson to attack him and creating an even bigger rift within the Quakes.moreless
