It was my first time bouting yesterday. It was amazing!
I’m really glad BBRD gave me the chance to skate with them against this team as we wanted to get a feel for how they played.
We started out well but our blockers got easily distracted, myself included when I was pivot, and had a hard time switching from offense to defense.
I took a lot of hits, including a sandwich to the head (btw where the hell was the call for high blocking on that?!), one hit I got spun around and skated backwards before skating off and calling off the jam…it was rugged but I’m proud of the fact that I GOT UP AS FAST AS I COULD EVERY DAMN TIME. I’m also really proud that I only had two majors.
It was a really great bout although we got our asses slaughtered but it was well worth it.
The after party was at On Tap in Essex Jct where they had a nice buffet upstairs for the players, NSO’s and derby Moms and Grandmas.
Some other teams were in attendance getting the scoop on the teams playing, Plattsburgh Roller Derby was there, a couple of players from Albany were there I heard…
My leg is sore from either taking a hit to it or from pulling it in a fall, my left hindquarter hurts from falling on it but nothing that rest, stretching, Advil, and heatwraps can’t cure.
Off to find some video of the bout to study study study!
