Two Rivers VS Dutchland: Bout Recap!
Two Rivers Roller Derby has begun their 2015 season with a Smash Hit!!
During the off-season we were working hard to develop new skills to return to the track with strength and commitment. We couldn’t wait to get back out there as a team and put our hard work to good use! On March 7th, we stepped up to take on the Blitz, Dutchland’s B-team! This was our third time competing against Dutchland Derby Rollers.
Both teams put up a hard fight. We were very closely matched, but Two Rivers kept a steady lead throughout the whole game. We started strong and finished strong as a team, leading us to our victory!
The final score was Two Rivers: 208 to Dutchland: 146.
Congratulations to our MVPs! Rainbow Bite me for MVP jammer, and Carnage for MVP blocker!
“The win against Dutchland was hard fought and did not come easy. Being named MVP was a complete shock to me since all our blockers played so well, and I cannot wait to have fun battling the Blitz again.” –Carnage
“I’m so proud to be a part of such a hard working & talented team of women who have, along with Greg, helped push me to be a better skater and I love them for that!” –Rainbow Bite Me
Our first bout of the season was a worthy feat, and it is only the first of many to come. Our team is steadily improving and we will have plenty opportunity to prove our true talent in our upcoming bouts. Individually we are skilled, but as a team we are a force to be reckoned with!
