In their most physical test yet, the Warrin’ Wrecking Dolls came away with a win over the visiting Niagara Roller Girls Saturday night, 166-115, bringing their record to 3-0.
The bout started with the Dolls jumping to a 32-4 lead. But, what looked like a blowout was quickly changed thanks to great defensive blocking. Wham and Freek-A-Rella of Niagara repeatedly sent Dolls jammers to the penalty box, allowing their team to close the deficit to 63-60 at the half.
Relying heavily on back blocker Tabulous and the teamwork of their front three, the Dolls’ halftime adjustments would see them drive their lead back to 40 points in ten minutes. From there, the Dolls’ never looked back. Even after losing their lead scorer, Goblynn, after fouling out, the Warren jammers stepped up and kept the score out of reach for Niagara.
“Having your starter go down means everyone else needs to step up,” said Dolls’ coach Spank. “Rushin Rollette, Maiden Raven and She Hostile delivered. The whole team put forth a great effort in the second half. They stayed focused and never stopped fighting.”
Coming up next for the Wrecking Dolls is an away game in Meadville when they take on the Rink Assassins July 9th.
The bout was packed full of hard hits and amazing displays of athleticism and sportsmanship.
The Dolls would like to send a huge shout out to the ladies of Niagara and supplements, the fans for cheering us on, the Officials and all the volunteers for making this game a huge success.
