Third Coast Roller Derby hit the road for their first away bout for the season. They landed in Lufkin TX, about 3 hours northeast of Houston up I-59. Upon arrival we were greeted by the East Texas Bombers. There were a few delays but once everything started, the game was filled with hard hitting action.
Unfortunately, the bout was not without casualty. Just minutes from half-time, Vixen – a skater for the Bombers – was injured. With any injury there was a coming together to protect the injured so that medical personnel can get to her. TCRD sends its warmest wishes for a speedy recovery to Vixen.
In the second half, both teams played with heart but the East Texas Bombers took the win – 246 (Bombers) to 110 (TCRD).
Unfortunately due to it being a Sunday game, few TCRD players were able to hang out with the Bombers at the after-party but we are already lining up future games. Thank you to the Bombers and all that made the game possible.
TCRD also sends a great big thumbs up to our MVP’s:
- Mentalea – Most Valuable Jammer
- VooDoom – Most Valuable Blocker
- Minion – Most Valuable Player
We are also proud of several of our new skaters taking the floor for the first time with TCRD.
- Sexy Rexy – Jammed her heart out and put some points on the board.
- Pippy Bombstocking – Faced the opponents with style and blocked their socks off.
We couldn’t be more proud of each and every player.
GOOD WORK TCRD!
