Our roller derby trifecta of a season opener began with a mini-bout between Black and White teams composed of players from all three SDRD teams (AfterShocks, Bandettes and Starlettes). This “Civil War”, as our announcer G.I. Bro called it, was followed by the main bout (SDRD vs TRD) and a 15-minute half-time bout featuring our awesome junior league, the Cadettes. It was one exciting Saturday!
The 30-minute opening bout was full of exceptional skating skills, killer blocks, and a very intense co-ed battle. B. Stang of the White Team was a great leader, as always, and wowed the crowd with his amazing skating skills and trips to the penalty box! But hey, nobody’s perfect, right?
Six o’clock rolled around, and it was time for the Starlettes to roll onto the track in their brand new uniforms (thanks, Icepax!). The first half of the bout was exceptionally thrilling! The Starlettes had not bouted since November and the crowd was louder than ever, rooting for their favorite derby girls. The Starlettes had several power jams led by Snow Bunny on Wheelz, Icepax, and Wonder Whoop’em.
Februrary 5th was also a very special day for our junior league, The Cadettes, who really stole the show and riled up the crowd at half time! Sporting their super cool uniforms (thanks again, Icepax!), these ruthless kiddos skated their little hearts out and played one remarkable 15-minute game. Blockers such as Baby Buns , Mini Sweet Pain and Glitter Bomb blocked more than they ever had at practice. Jammers Jack Jack Attack ad Kiki Di Ankles put on quite the show for our crowd, who never tired of cheering, jam after jam! Congrats, Cadettes! You guys are doing great!
