In our April double header, the Rat City Rollergirls hosted teams from the Bay Area Derby Girls and Denver Roller Dolls. Both of our visitors scored wins over the Rat City teams.
In the opening bout, Rat City’s Rain of Terror played Denver’s Bruising Altitude. Bruising Altitude was first to score and held the lead for the whole game. Rain of Terror fought to the finish and had a very strong second half. Final score 107-75.
The second bout featured Rat City All-Stars and the Bay Area Derby Girls from San Francisco. Bay Area’s remarkable defense and ability to capitalize on power jam opportunities put them at 60-30 going into half time. An aggressive run to start off the second half gave the All-Stars the ability to make up some ground, and then some, retaking the lead within 10 minutes of the start of the period. The rest of the game was a back-and-forth nail-biter, but it was ultimately Bay Area’s bout: Final score: 103-92.
If you missed the bout, the All-Stars’ game was filmed for broadcast on the Root Sports Network and will be aired in May.
Full bout recaps will be posted shortly.
