On June 18th, the Starlettes played one of the most anticipated games in the history of
Roller Derby. Our guest this time around was the SDDD Hard Corps. It was a very exciting game, full of hip checks, jammers skating at the speed of light and most of all, lots of blocker on blocker action! The fans of roller ’s finest city came for a show and the teams sure did deliver.
The evening began with SDRD’s junior league, The Cadettes, who are coached by our very own Bully Julie and Coach B. Stang. All the Cadettes played skated to the very best of their abilities, but the most outstanding players this game were Booty Bumper and Rollin Angel. Their on skate skills bumped the evening to what would turn out to be a fast rolling night.
Shortly after the Cadettes thrilling game, the first whistle was blown by Rockettes’ Captain and sometimes Starlettes Ref, Nicci Two Skates. The Starlettes and Hard Corps began rolling on the track. The first line to go out was lead by as pivot, Em’ Down, Marcy Slayground and I.B. Rascal. The second line was lead by pivot, Robyn Ur Pride, Sugar Britches, Bully Julie and Buns of Fury. With two solid lines covering the first half of this bout, jammer’s, Wicked Angel, Dee Troit and Icepax (captain) zipped around the track to score points leaving the Hard Corps behind by a 30 point difference.
By the second half, Ortega Chile decided her line needed something sweet, and she added some Rumble Pie to it. Sugar was the last thing from Rumble’s mind as she came to the floor dolling out thundering hits instead. Snow Bunny on Wheelz came in as a jammer, giving Wicked Angel a chance to go on Robyn Ur Pride’s line, and show off her blocking skills. Rumor has it that the word in the crowd was that “Wicked Angel was killing the opposing team” and indeed she was!! The Starlettes fought hard for every single point, as the Hard Corps were not easy to defeat. However, they skated strong and played as a true team. With the rowdy fans pumping up the energy in the rink San Diego Roller Derby took the win Starlettes Dolls Hard Corps 77.
