Crown City Rollerz Imperial Forces made their debut at Paint the Track Purple this past Saturday! In their first bout ever, the Forces offered excellent competition against Hartford Area Roller Derby’s Beat City Bedrockers. But heart wasn’t enough to pull out a win against the second-year team. The final score was 144-286 with Beat City coming out on top.
MVPs for the first bout of the night were:
Beat City MVP Blocker: Turnpike Tallulah #X4
Beat City MVP Jammer: Mohammed I’lleat-cha #42
Forces MVP Blocker: Jane Witty #13
Forces MVP Jammer: ShaDyNasty #2
Great job, ladies!
And as the second bout of the night got underway, the Royal Pains began to fall behind. After a few jams of lead changes, the score continued to steadily climb for Hartford’s Wailers to offer up the Pains’ second loss of the season. Penalty trouble plagued both teams, with a few skaters fouling out of the game. The final score left Hartford on top at 220-302. However, both teams put a lot of heart on the track and the fans were engaged the whole time.
MVPs for the second bout of the night were:
Wailers MVP Blocker: Sue-Nami Force #7.2
Wailers MVP Jammer: Sabatage Sabal #24
Royal Pains MVP Jammer: Helluva Mess #777
Royal Pains MVP Blocker: Baby J #918
The first double header of the season was bittersweet for two of our skaters. It was the last bout for both CCR MVP jammers of the night. The Royal Pains’ Helluva Mess, a senior at SUNY Cortland, is graduating this year and headed out into the “real” world. And Forces’ ShaDyNasty will be relocating to New York City later this month. Good luck to both of you incredible ladies! You’ll always have a home at CCR!
In addition to a crowd-pleasing event, we raised nearly $400 from ticket sales alone, to be donated to the Relay for Life!
And finally, a HUGE thanks to Hartford Area Roller Derby for being some really fun, talented, and super cool broads! We look forward to seeing you next year!
