Cape Girardeau Roller Girls vs SIRG Bout Recap

PRESS RELEASE

 

Saturday, April 12th  2014 the Cape Girardeau Roller Girls traveled to Marion, Il to play our sister league the Southern Illinois Roller Girls. In 2013 the sister leagues battled it out twice, once on Cape’s home turf and the other at the Midwest Derbyfest in Lebannon, MO. CGRG walked away with both wins last year and CGRG trained hard, preparing themselves for one of our most anticipated bouts of the season.

CGRG took lead early in the game , but SIRG began to push back hard closing the point gap. At the end of the first half there was only a 1 point difference with CGRG earning 76 points to SIRG’s 75 points. CGRG’s blockers wowed the fans with seamless transitions and strong forwards as well as backwards blocking. Sue Bob Fight and Bruise Fairy punished the opposing jammers with abounding shoulder jabs to the chest while Molotov was on top of her game trapping and soul crushing as far as possible with help from her fellow blockers bridge building.

Both teams came out strong for the second half and SIRG got a small lead on CGRG until the second to last jam when Queen Cobra turned the score to CGRG’s favor with a 16 point jam making the score 138-146 with CGRG’s in the lead . It all came down to the last jam, CGRG put in their power pack of Molotov, Bruise Fairy, Sue Bob Fight, Block Widow, and SheKill O’Neal, but alas the ever wily Psychokid Freakout jammed SIRG to a win with a final score of 152-146! 

SheKill O’Neal impressed with her fast feet and fearless jamming the whole bout! This was the first bout that SheKill solely played as a jammer, scoring a total of 48 points. Queen Cobra was quick and agile as ever, completing one of her signature apex jumps to clear the pack. While Treblesome’s fancy 

footwork won her MVP jammer and earned CGRG 61 points and Sue Bob Fights purty hits earned her MVP blocker. CGRG is glad to have Sunny D’Saster back in the pack working hard with fellow blockers Shantastic Vixen, Crazy Anya, Wicked Witch, Schlitt Throat, Block Widow, Me-Ya Wham, and Flesner 

(who we hope to see jamming soon ;-) 

CGRG is excited to play, for the first time ever, Midstate Mayhem at the A.C. Brase Arena building on Saturday April 26th. To get more information check out our Facebook event HERE.
