The Dutchland Derby Rollers B team, the Blitz, battled the Block Party from sister league Philly Roller Girls. Philly has a reputation for being tough, and the Block Party roster reinforced their reputation. Skaters Betty Gesserit, Susie Nugent, Acute Toxicity, Babcocked and Loaded, Raggedy Aneurysm, Vanitti, White Winged Shove, Sistine Shrapnel, Porsche Bloxter, Leah Loveless, and Ida Myzer. For several skaters on this roster, this was their second round on the derby track that evening. The Block Party brought it on strong with aggressive packs from the first jam whistle, and the Blitz blockers had their hand full with Philly’s agile and speedy jammers. The Blitz jammers fought admirably through the tough defense of Philly, but the Block Party claimed the lead during the first half with a score of 61-36. Philly widened their lead with a halftime score of 137-55. The Blitz were tenacious and were able to almost double their points during the second half, but Philly stayed on top and claimed a 264-100 victory over the Blitz.
