Rockettes vs IEDD

San Diego Roller Derby's May game was quite a special bout for the league. Not only was it the Rockettes first game of the season, but our very own junior Cadettes got to open the evening with their first 20 minute bout! The crowd seemed so pleased as they cheered on our juniors while they played a very entertaining game!

As the first game whistle blew, the Rockettes attempted to stay strong with a wall upfront. IEDD did a good job of breaking up walls and keeping the pack fast with strong hits but none the less, this made the Rockettes work harder as a team and stick together using solid walls and hits which did not allow the Derby Divas to pass the Rockettes 35 point lead. Right before the first half of the game came to an end, the Rockettes Captian Nicci Two Skates is down with an ankle injury, which left her out for the rest of the game. The score was 90 -45. 

When half time approached we were very proud to have our coach B. Stang and jam skate partner William Jackson back on the track entertaining the crowd with their infamous jumps, flips, and jam skate moves- their show always pleases our fans! 

As the second half of the game started,the Rockettes seemed to be a little shaken having lost their Captian in the first half. Inland Empire used this to their advantage and with 9 minutes left in the game, they had come back to only be down by one point, the score was 110-109! This left the Rockettes with no other choice but to step up their game, ending in a 40 point victory! The final score was 177-137 .

We could not have asked for a better game with such great sportsWOmanship. The Inland Empire Derby Divas had a blast hanging with us at the after party, laughing and recapping the game. IEDD chose Berry Nasty as MVP blocker of the night and TUTU TUFF as MVP jammer. Well deserved ladies!!

We hope that you will come support SDRD in our upcoming fundraising event to raise money for our trip to Idaho, as we are participating in a tournament hosted by Treasure Valley Derby Girls. Our fundraiser will be held at the Malt Shop located on Midway Drive in the Sports Arena area on June 17th.
