The evening kicked off with a pre bout by our amazing Cadettes! Many of our juniors, who are coached by our own SDRD players, are really stepping it up a notch this season! If you haven’t seen them play yet this season, make sure you come out to their next game and give them a shout out!
Game # 2 showcased the Coastbusters vs. our game # 1 winners, the Rollin’ Ninjas. The Ninjas showed up with masks and rubber ducks, ready to kick some booty. The Coastbusters, however, didn’t disappoint, showing up with their mascot, The Coastbuster! He helped them warm up on the track and got the crowd cheering.
The first half kicked off with a bang and the Ninjas did not let their fans down, throwing the first 4 points up on the board. The Coastbusters pushed back and managed to tie the score back up by the 5th jam. The tie didn’t last long though as the Ninjas pulled ahead and managed to stay there, ending the first half 28-47.
The second half saw the Ninjas holding there lead, the Coastbusters struggling to put some more points up. Tempers began to flare and hits grew harder as players struggled to assist their jammers. The Rollin Ninjas Mistress Doom was ejected during jam 30. It seems she forgot to leave her naughty words at home. Although the Coastbusters scored some more points, it was not enough to take the lead and the Ninjas won their second game, 61-100.
One noticeable difference in this game were the jaw jarring, bone slamming hits!
With the Rollin Ninjas holding the first place position, the next game, RRA vs. Coastbusters, will determine who the second place team is so far this season. This game is sure to be intense!
Thank you to Skateworld, the NSOs, Refs, and all others who make this league and season possible.
