  • Brief Recap: Mars vs. Venus | Twin City Derby Girls
    public bout Though the styles of play couldn t be more different the two teams appeared to be an excellent match from the first whistle Though it was a physical bout it wasn t a particularly penalty heavy one and fans of a fast moving get past me derby were not disappointed The Hooligans jammers indeed had some trouble getting past TCDG s constantly moving cluster of blockers who have really stepped up their game this season The Hooligans took the lead early and held it throughout most of the first half With about 10 minutes to go TCDG dropped that lead to under 10 and went to the locker room down 71 102 That lead collapsed and returned again during the second half as TCDG stacked point on point to threaten the Hooligans win But the guys from Springfield were persistent and played smart and racked up almost 30 points in the last few jams finishing the game at 202 to TCDG s 151 Despite the loss we couldn t be prouder of our women in green and we hope to see the Hooligans on the track again soon In case you couldn t be there in person we have some video of the bout here note there is no audio in the first half Share this Twitter Facebook Google Like this Like Loading May 5 2015 in Bout Recaps Evil Twins Home Related posts Quick Recap Skate to Thrill Tournament TCDG in Sunny Florida Two Tough Bouts Quick Recap TCDG Dead Ringers Win Post navigation Quick Recap Skate to Thrill Tournament Alter Egos Take On Peoria Push Follow Twin City Derby Girls on WordPress com My Tweets Categories Alter Egos 3 Announcements 14 Bout Recaps 18 Evil Twins 6 Fundraiser 2 Home 3 Next 24 On the Road
