Today we, the Warrin' Wrecking Dolls, travelled to Clearfield, PA to play against the Backwoods Bruisers of Northern Allegheny Roller Derby. We have spent a little over a year preparing for this moment under the guidance of our coach, Spank. We practice twice a week, Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings, building up our endurance, foot work, technique, strength, stability, and team work. The nerves were high and adrenaline thick as we hit the track for the very first time as a true team.
At halftime we gathered up to strategize. Analyzing our game so far, and the best way to move forward. With strong blocking and teamwork, we held off the consistently competitive Bruisers to to bring home our first win in our first bout ever.
We would like to thank NARD for their hospitality, as well as the Refs and NSOs for all of their hard work.
Also, a huge shout out to all of the fans that made the trip to support our league and the sport of roller derby. It was a surreal evening and we are so glad that we had you their to share the experience with us.
See you again soon.... May 7th we'll be hosting WestCo at Allen Park Ice Rink.
