This past September 24th, SDRD’s Starlettes met with the VCDD Vendolls, yet again. Both teams battled it out on the track recently (June, 2011) at the Vendolls home in Ventura, CA, ending in a win for the Starlettes.
The evening began with a 30 minute bout with players from our men’s team, the Aftershocks, our B team, the Bandettes, and also included returning veteran skater, Sweet Pain. Both teams played as Black vs White featuring up and coming blockers such as Skaterbuilt, Bones Thugs and Disharmony and Bronze Vixen, and up and coming jammers, Iliac Attack, Soulrider and Tomikaze.
After the Black vs White game ended, the main teams skated onto the track for what would mark the second consecutive win for the Starlettes vs the Vendolls. It was a close, hard-hitting, action packed bout including, Marcy Slayground, Berle Scout and MVP of the night, Buns of Fury doing their best at blocking, together with the rest of the Starlettes blockers. The Vendoll’s players included many hard hitting ladies, like Vendetta Vixen and MVP of the night, Az Sassin. They most definitely posed a threat for the Starlettes, by playing a smart and strong game and building walls that seemed to be made out of bricks, literally.
Both teams put the best of their abilities and skills to work and fought hard but in the end, it was the Starlettes who took the win, with of close score of 147 Starlettes to 130 VenDolls. MVP jammer of the night went to Starlettes, Wonder Whoop’em and Vendolls Chronic Speed for getting through the pack with ferocity!
