40oz Bout Report – CDD Bruisers vs Fredericksburg
Charlottesville Derby Dames’ Belmont Bruisers trekked upstate to battle against the newly named Fredericksburg Roller Derby – formerly the 540 Rollergirls. Both teams rolled in with one bout under their belts; FRD trying to add one to the Win column while the Bruisers tried to maintain an undefeated season. The first five jams saw CDD veteran jammers and newbies alike in Rae-Elise the Kraken and Shank as well as Gemmatron and Dutch Blitz donning the star only to be 14-12 CDD up. Being accustomed to close bouts, the Bruisers weren’t intimidated in the least when FRD jammers inched up to a 23-16 lead.
Turns out it’d be Fredericksburg’s only points lead of the game – and it wasn’t even half time yet.
With consistent lead jammer calls for the Belmont Bruisers and phenomenal defensive plays by blockers Swift Jesstice, Lamp, and Badsquish, Fredericksburg only added 33 points to their score while CDD expanded theirs five times over, ending the half 84-56. FRD was able to etch out more lead jammer statuses in the second half, but thanks to blockers like Apple Clobber and Nacho Baby, FRD jammers spent almost as much time in the penalty box as on the track, allowing CDD to gain 60 additional points to Fredericksburg’s 12. The bout ended in a glorious mad dash for points versus the period clock, the Belmont Bruisers skating away to a victorious 197-134.
