First bout of the day had ADD’s B.ADD girls facing Trondheim Roller Derby Klub of Norway, a relatively new European league we knew very little about, but of which we all receive stickers so we won’t forget. The B.ADD got an early lead, and with some very solid teamwork was able to hold on to it for a 245 – 105 win, proving that those pesky pre-bout predictions are about as reliable as horoscopes. For the record, we all just love the yellow and black colour scheme of the Norwegians!
The second bout of this stormy double header just ADDed (pun!) to Amsterdam’s delight for the day in the form of a win for the All Stars, 210 – 142 over Edinburg, Scotland’s Auld Reekie Roller Girls’ B team – The Cannon Belles, which was the result of a lot of hard work during very fast jams. The Belles had the lead often and both teams were close, but in the end ADD’s power jams were cashed in and they made it out in front. ARRG’s fans win the cheering section award for sure!
Congratulations to all the great teams and everyone who came out to what truly was an epic battle!
