The SRG Battle Broads brought home another road win with a narrow victory against the Rt. 66 Roller Girls in Amarillo, TX. The bout came down to the last jam with a final score of 159 – 157 SRG. The bout started off rough for the officials with malfunctioning whistles resulting in several false start and no start jams. With help from contraband whistles from fans, the issue was quickly resolved.
Power jams were not kind to SRG resulting in a quick lead for Rt. 66. The Battle Broads trailed behind 18 points at the end of the first period with the official score standing at 62 – 44 Rt. 66.
In the second half it was the Battle Broad’s turn for power jams. As Rt. 66’s pack began to slow and show signs of fatigue, SRG kept the hard hits coming. Pivot MaryLou Wretched narrowly escaped ejection from the game after 6 trips to the penalty box but powerful blocking helped SRG close the gap and finally pull ahead 155 – 147 with 1:14 left in the game.
In the final jam both jammers receive minor penalties making both ineligible for lead. SRG jammer, Annabel Lector, manages to gain the necessary points to get the win. Final Score 159 – 157 SRG.
