PINK AND RED NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD TOGETHER

The first bout of the Capital Collision Tournament started with a bang on April 28 as the Hell’s Belles (SIS) were victorious over the Femmes Brutale (CCR) at Aurora Sports Stadium in New Town.

The first three jams saw the Femmes dominate the scoreboard 38 – 2 while the Belles jammers were finding their feet and their blockers sized up the competition. The Belles tight teamwork and determination brought them back into the game with their blockers holding the Femmes jammer tighter and longer with every jam. The Femmes started to rack up a number of major penalties allowing the Belles to earn some serious points in the power jams. Mixing up their strategy between passive conga lines and defensive sweeps of the Femmes walls, the Belles owned the track. By half time, the Belles were in the lead 97 – 61 and showed no signs of fatigue.

In the second half, Femmes blocker, Red Haxor, who has returned to derby after a hiatus, was a force that required a lot of the Belles attention. The Femmes were able to get their jammer through while the Belles blockers were otherwise occupied. The point difference started to close in but penalties had a major impact on the bout for the Femmes. With 1:30 to go and just 1 point behind, the Femmes jammer was back in the box allowing Belles Co-Captain, SplatterBerry, the chance to secure lead jammer status and run the clock down to the final siren, collecting 13 points along the way. The final score: Hell’s Belles 146 defeat Femmes Brutal 131.

Next bout: Maul Teasers (SIS) v. Deadly Nightslays (CCR) at Kingborough Sports Centre, 2pm on May 19.

SIS Krakens take on NRRD’s Battlestars

It was the weekend before Halloween and the Krakens were fired up to hop on a plane and head up to Lismore! After a quick bag pickup & chucking our gear in the vans on the other side, the Krakens headed to Byron for a relaxing day of sunshine, swimming and food, before heading to their hotel (and pool) in Lismore.

This bout had been in the planning for months, and the Krakens were ready to go! The venue was hot, and the competition fierce, with an awesome showcase of skill and strategy from both sides. A huge THANK YOU! to the Battlestars of NRRD for having us, it was an amazing game! Congrats also to Peggy Sue Nami, MVP for the Sirens as well as an Honourable mention to FreekyPeep. Kimmando Karnage took out MVP for the Battlestars, with an Honourable mention to Dreaded Kat.

Hope to see you in Hobart next year ladies!
