Words from our very own Gore May:
In a clash of two established local teams, Hot Wheel took on Leeds Roller Dolls. LRD's A-Team (Rebel Roses) are 10th in Europe to our 20th, and with over 6 years together as a league under their belts, it's safe to say we knew we were in for a tough one!
The first 10 minutes felt to me a bit like a bomb going off... the game didn't so much start as EXPLODE! They were straight into fast skating and hard hits, with Leeds players like RIPunzel and Pussy Rollmore standing out with their jamming. Hydra Electric had a lot of support from her fellow dolls and Feral Fairy also made an impact and had a strong presence on track. Our very own Peggy Leethal did some insanely determined and nippy jamming; with great booty blocking from Shell Yeah! Ceej Mentality and Mega-Phone! played their 2nd and 3rd bouts, both looking for all the world like they've been doing it years :)
Hot Wheel managed to keep on LRD's tail score wise for a while, but the Dollies experience and power pulled ahead, ending a tense hour with a win of 254 to 103!
