LRG Summer Shovin’ Team Pink 89 – 79 Team Black

28 07 2008

The Romsey Town Rollerbillies trucked down to the capital last weekend to see The London Rollergirls hosting their final Team Pink Vs Team Black bout, the last of the best-of-three between the two kick-ass teams. Both on one a-piece, Saturday’s event was guaranteed to be one hell of a high velocity, bearing-busting bout, to end the debate as to who would reign supreme before the LRG broke for the summer.

The game saw some fantastic maneuvers from both teams, and Rollergirls were tearing up the track in their bid to win the feverish final battle. Suicide Corner pulled a number of players stacking into the crowd, but apart from the usual fat-lipping, table-tripping spin-outs, the only major injury came from a Bette Noir fall for a sprained ankle in the second period. Get well soon Sister! Both teams racked up some impressive scoring passes with double Grandslams (10 points) coming from both debutant Ninjette for Team Pink in first period, and from Poison Arrow for Team Black, in the final jam of the bout.

The guys and gals from RTRB and Last Gang in Town cranked up the decibels at Summer Shovin’, supporting both Pink & Black sides! All of us left hoarse from cheering, yet chomping at the bit to hit the flat-track hard once back home. Oh, and check out the new threads designed and modeled here by Sailor Cherry, lovin’ the new tee motif, girl!

Well done to all those involved in a marvelous event, to the victorious Team Pink and to Sky Rockit for winning the Crowd’s Rollergirl of the Match for a second consecutive bout! The Romsey Town Rollerbillies loved every minute of it and will being seeing you all in the fall!

Thanks London Rollergirls, you rock!
