The Springfield Roller Girls had an up and down pair of bouts at their Bike Night Double Header last night at Skateport resulting in a Battle Broads loss and All-Stars Win.
The SRG Battle Broads took on the ladies of Mo-Kan Roller Girlz. It was a long tough bout that appeared early to be a fairly even match. Late in the first half Mo-Kan began to pull away. The BB fought hard but it wasn’t enough to stop Mo-Kan’s run. Final: 160-95 Mo-Kan.
Next the All-Stars battled their rivals, the ICT Roller Girls of Wichita, KS. The bout quickly became a hard-hitting match. SRG All-Stars took the lead from the start, and despite a losing one of its star jammers to an injury in the first half, manages to strengthen their lead. After an increasing number of heavy penalty jams and several official reviews due to tricky jammer penalty situations, the SRG All-Stars proved their abilities in full-fledged WFTDA level of play. Final: 196-108 SRG All-Stars.
The Springfield Roller Girls’ next home bout is scheduled for August 20th at Skateport when the Battle Broads take on Team Unicorn.
