The Dutchland Rollers C team, the Crush, traveled north on Sunday, September 29th to take on the newly formed Two Rivers Roller Derby. A Dutchland mixed roster of derby vets and newly minted roller girls faced off against a similar roster of Two Rivers skaters during their inaugural bout in Bethlehem, PA. The skills sets of both teams were quite evenly matched, which made for a very exciting roller derby bout. Both teams demonstrated effective defense with brutal blocking and solid walls. Some of Dutchland’s jammers has some difficulties as the track surface proved to be very slippery, with the exception of Crush MVP Babcocked and Loaded, who demonstrated some superb jammer skills and endurance throughout the evening. The teams exchanged leads nearly every other jam, with the score remaining extremely close throughout both halves. Two Rivers pulled out a nail biter, one point win with a final score of 199-198 over the Dutchland Crush.
