MMR’s first home bout victory
After 1 lap on a space hopper and our off skates warmup, MMR were ready for their first home bout against The Imposter Roller Girls
The first whistle blew, our blockers swarmed and Rocky Ell Boa broke through for lead jammer and scored our first 4 points. As we skated back to our benches I look over at Rocky and mutter “this is going to be good.”
It was time to put our months of GETTING LOW and trying to be Gotham to use.
Second Jam, Lolly steps up to the Jammer line, Imposters get through for Lead Jammer closely followed by Lolly who puts the pressure on and forces The Imposters to call it. 19 jams and 124 points later MMR had the lead as the Half Time whistle blew.
The second half began and we knew The Imposters would come back stronger in the second half, we couldn’t let this go – and we didn’t.
It was a pleasure skating with The Imposter Roller Girls – we’ll see you at the Great Yorkshire Showdown!
The final score was MMR 249 IRG 70.
