New York Wipes Out Philadelphia to Take EXTREME DODGEBALL Season III Championship

The Bling With Mia St. John Knock Out Trotter's Benjamins 57-37

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 23 -- In the end it was about the ring and not the money as the New York Bling defeated the Philadelphia Benjamins to win the championship on GSN's third season of EXTREME DODGEBALL.

New York dominated the game jumping out to an early first quarter lead and never trailed in the match that ended with a 57-37 victory on GSN Tuesday night.

"I'm so excited," said Mia St. John, the professional boxer and celebrity player captain for the Bling. "We knocked their asses out!"

Commissioner Rip Torn presented New York with the championship trophy on the court following their dominating win.

"We are proud of the successful season we had," said Jeremiah Trotter, the celebrity player captain of the Philadelphia Benjamins. "We'll come back next year to win it all."

New York was lead by Portis Hershey and former NFL player Tyrone Rush. New York's strong offense also carried them to a 62-39 victory over Tara Dakides and the Denver Hurlers in the semi-finals.

The New York Bling celebrated with a $10,000 winner's check and playground bragging rights. New York, who won the regular season with a 8-2, won over $50,000 for the season. This was the first season of the new four quarters and scoring system for the dodgeball game. (The winning team's photograph is available for use by logging on to corp.gsn.com).
