Oslo Tiger City Beasts – GBGRD Badass Beavers

Last Saturday The A-Team and the Badass Beavers travelled to Norway to meet the A- and B-team of Oslo Roller Derby.

For the first game The A-Team met Oslo Roller Derby A. Both teams started out strong, putting up slow moving walls against some really strong jammers. The A-Team managed to contain the Oslo jammers successfully through out the first period, taking the lead and getting that score difference to keep growing. Halftime scores read 55-119 in favour of The A-Team.

Oslo Roller Derby A stepped up their game for the second period and started to catch up to The A-Team and keeping everyone on their toes. However, The A-Team kept the lead through out the game . Final score ended at 131-164 in favour of The A-Team, marking yet another win for this season.

This was the second WFTDA sanctioned game for the league, getting us closer to a WFTDA ranking. We congratulate the team who are now preparing for their next game at the weekend of the Elite League of Roller Derby, 28-29 November.

The Badass Beavers met Oslo Tiger City Beasts in the second game of the day. The Badass Beavers took lead first jam showing some great offence play. The teams played a really close game with several lead changes through out the game. By the end of the first period, Oslo Tiger City Beasts had the lead with scores reading 77-63.

The second period showed to be even more exciting. Oslo Tiger City Beasts kept the lead through out the bigger part of the period, with the Badass Beavers in hot pursuit. After a chaotic last jam, keeping everyone at the edge of their seat, the Badass Beavers won the game by four points, leaving the final score at 176-180.

We congratulate the team on their first win this season, showing us they have really come far through hard work. They now prepare for their next game against Dock City Rollers Plan B, 19th December.

We also want to thank Oslo Roller Derby for being amazing hosts, we had a great time!
