Bout Preview by Rex Blocker: April 26 Double Header

Hello, derby fans! Rex Blocker here again, with a look ahead to this weekend’s fabulous doubleheader at the amazing Armory in San Francisco! That’s right, SF, we’re coming to YOU this time!!

The weekend’s action pits the Oakland Outlaws (0-1) against the Berkeley Resistance (1-0) at 6pm, with the nightcap featuring the hometown San Francisco ShEvil Dead (0-1) skating against the Richmond Wrecking Belles (1-0).

In the opener, Oakland will be looking to reverse course after a surprising-to-many loss by three points to the Richmond Wrecking Belles, a loss that ended their four-game intraleague win streak. That close loss didn’t shake the team as much as it may have done some of their fans, however. Coach Dorato says they kept their cool, even when the last jam saw Dorato herself as a surprise jammer, following a teammate’s skate malfunction. They kept to their game plan throughout the bout, and are looking forward to taking on the Resistance. Since the last bout, they’ve lost #33 Killer Vee to Texas, and #320 Sheer Luxe to an injury (she’ll be coaching on the bench), but are looking forward to the Outlaw debuts of #40 Val Hella and #64 Mary Prankster.

WFTDA Championships

Our All Stars traveled to Atlanta, GA for the 2012 WFTDA Championships, to compete against the top three teams from each region. Our first match up was against the Philly Roller Girls, the second place team in the Eastern Region. BAD took Philly 169 to 119. This victory took the BAD girls into day two of the tournament where they faced the number one team in the South Central Region, the Texas Rollergirls. BAD fought tooth and nail ’til the end, but Texas came out on top 216 to 161. Bay Area’s fans could not be more proud of the Golden Girls this year! Making it to the second game of the National tournament is farther than Bay Area has ever advanced since our inception in 2006.
