London Roller Girls vs. Rocky Mountain

Knickerblocker Glory streaching after the game
So last weekend was spent in London and Birmingham, and it was fantastic, and sad, and amazing. I realized how much I acctually do miss playing high-level derby, and at the same time it was great to see old friends, make new friends, play and practice and just not have to be the strict coach... I liked that quite a lot!
The bout was no big suprise, London did draw first blood (that was a suprise), and then after that they did not score much while RMRG kept on putting points on the board. I must say that I am very impressed by Kamikaze Kitten - she was doing great jamming for London, and I must say that London had great walls, but against the well-oiled machine that Rocky is, they just did not match up.Stephanie Mainey did some great job jamming, but she is a fierce blocker, and I must say I also have a soft spot for Raw Heidi :-D.
DeRanged jammed amazingly, Psyko was cocky and amazing on hte track (I think she's the only skater that I know that get away with the attitude and still is so lovable) and Rocky are just so well times and has some amazing team-work... and AJ looked great - even if she just got back from an ankle injury...  Yeah... it was great to watch, the bout was intense and not boring a minute even if Rocky were winning, with A LOT.
Oh, and we did not end up in the middle of any riots either... a weekend of sucess.. .I will write soem more about the camp when I wake up tomorrow morning... we just got back from off-skates practice and that ontop of the weekend... my hamstrings need some loving!

  1. It's different reading this in retrospect to the most recent matches London had at Big 5 - especially in how they took down Boston and the Skids. Someone must be levelling up London and fast!
