TO DOUBLEHEADER SWEEP OF GRAND RAPIDS

 

The two teams of the Cincinnati Rollergirls skated to commanding wins at the Cincinnati Gardens on Saturday night over the visiting Grand Raggidy Rollergirls. In the opening bout, Cincinnati's ‘B' team, the Silent Lambs, routed the G-Rap Attack! 103-25. The 4th ranked Black Sheep, Cincinnati's all-star squad also rolled in their bout, whipping the 7th ranked Grand Raggidy All-Stars 147-27 in Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) action. The bout between the Black Sheep and Grand Raggidy All-Stars, featured two of the top seven teams in the Northeast Region on WTDA rankings.

Leading the way for the Silent Lambs was Polly Rocket, who amassed 42 jam points. Points are only scored in roller derby by a jammer, who scores by passing the opposing teams skaters.

In the second bout, the Cincinnati Black Sheep trailed after the first two jams, 1-0. But the next four jams saw Cincinnati rally and take a 14-2 lead. That was as close as the Grand Raggidy All-Stars would get. The Black Sheep put the bout out of reach with a 49-0 run to finish the first half and led at halftime 84-7. The Black Sheep limited Grand Raggidy to points in just four jams in the first half.
