Road Trip to the Netherlands
We played the Rotterdam Classy Roaches who started with 5 new guys and some more experienced guest skaters on track.
SGMRD was able to field a well attuned roster introducing Steißkerl #999 who played his first bout and guest skater Psycho Crusher #667.
Playing with 9 guys and a rotation of 3 dedicated jammers (Duke Jukem, Bloodred Kelly and Mahatma Bronson), our blockers had to fill quite a bit of track time. Since the arena’s floor seemed constantly to be facing uphill we had some work to do against 12 opposite players.
The game itself went perfect for us from the start, we were able to strictly contain Rotterdam’s jammers while ours could work their way through the pack and score.
Our defense played well together while some offensive plays went pretty smooth as well.
This allowed us to pull away from our heroic friends from Rotterdam pretty quickly, build a strong lead and never look back.
Our thanks goes to all the guys from Rotterdam, some of whom had a 4 hours training session before the bout (crazy, aren’t they?), for staying positive and smiling all the time. Thanks to our wonderful bench and lineup manager Kadda Handlung, to all our hosts and everybody supporting the triple header in Rotterdam.
