Homebouts are fantastic, especially when you end up doing a double slam! On our March 29th Double Header, Gent’s B-team The Cuberdonnas once again proved to be a force to be reckoned with. This time they took on the tough ladies of Roller Derby Porto. At halftime the score was in favor of the visitors. The Cuberdonnas showed their mental strength however, and came back with a vengeance, winning the bout with 145-121. Well done, Cubbies!
Next up was GO-GO Gent’s Travel Team, treating the audience with an impressive performance. Putting up a clever highly strategic game play, they clearly overpowered Essen’s Ruhrpott Roller Girls. Playing the whole bout as a solid well oiled machine, Gent overtook Essen with 279-59.
Thank you Porto and Ruhrpott Roller Girls for coming over, we hope to rematch soon! But first, both the Travelling Team and The Cuberdonnas are facing some other fierce contenders.
