CLTRG All-Stars defeat River City Poe’s Punishers in last game of the year
Charlotte Roller Girls All-Stars team bring home a win against Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) member league River City Rollergirls Poe’s Punishers in the featured bout in RCR’s Season’s Beatings on Saturday, December 4, 2010.
Once the main event started, River City jumped out with an early lead; but when the score hit double digits, CLTRG took the reins and held the lead for the rest of the game with a final score of 87-68. In a sport that can have jam scores of 15 points or more for a team, there wasn’t a single jam where either team scored over eight points. Charlotte’s hard work and preparation as a Women’s Flat-Track Derby Association (WFTDA) Apprentice member showed great cohesive team play, clock management, and individual player moments. This level of play against River City, a full WFTDA member league, was a terrific way to wrap up the 2010 season!
Charlotte Roller Girls league has just concluded its third home season. and will announce its 2011 home bout schedule soon.
