GBGRD Badass Beavers – Uppsala Roller Derby - Jackdaw City Rollers

This past Saturday Gothenburg Roller Derby hosted a doubleheader where The A-Team met Hulls Angels Roller Dames and The Badass Beavers met Uppsala Roller derby – Jackdaw City Rollers. 

First out was The A-Team against Hulls Angels Roller Dames. The A-Team took the lead in the first jam, and scored the first points of the day in the second jam. They performed strong walls and synchronised offences, getting their jammers out quickly. Hulls Angels kept their walls tight and slow, and covered the track efficiently. Hulls Angels couldn’t match The A-Team, leaving the halftime score at 188-35 in favour of The A-Team.

The A-Team kept playing a strong game through out the second period, with a steady growing score difference. Hulls Angels picked up their game, but could not catch up to The A-Team, who kept the lead the entire game. The final score ended at 361-85 in favour of The A-Team. 

In January The A-Team where ranked 129 on the European Flat Track Stats Ranking. With this game The A-Team has climbed and are now ranked 50th, showing that all the hard work has paid off for the team. 

The Badass Beavers started in the second game against Uppsala Roller Derby – Jackdaw City Rollers. It was an exciting game from the first jam, where Jackdaw earned lead jammer but which soon shifted to a power jam in favour of The Badass Beavers. It was an even game where the Badass Beavers kept the lead 20 minutes into the first period, then the lead changed.
At halftime Jackdaw City Rollers had the lead with the scores reading 126-109.

For the second period, the teams continued to play an exciting game with lots of hard hitting blockers and lateral jammers. The Badass Beavers could not catch up to Jackdaw City Rollers, and the game ended 187-239 in favour of Jackdaw City Rollers.

This was The Badass Beavers second game together this season, and they already show a lot of progress since their first game in Ludwigsburg a few weeks ago.

We would like to thank Hulls Angels Roller Derby and Jackdaw City Rollers for two great games and wish them well in their upcoming games.
