October 9th Bout Recap: The Black and Blue Ball!

The BLACK and BLUE BALL!!!

by Eliaz “Evil I.” McMillan

Saturday’s Black and Blue Ball certainly lived up to its name, and I’m not just talking about the attire. The ladies of FoCo Girls Gone Derby demonstrated that even a girl in an evening dress is a force to be reckoned with. I’m sure each derby girl left the Ball with their own forget-me-not that evening, and I don’t mean a corsage. Saturday saw some brutal (but mostly legal) hits delivered by elbows, forearms and shoves from behind.

Perhaps no one has a better story to tell than Bolshevik Sin, number 1917 of the Deathrow Dolls. About six minutes to the end of the bout she took a legal hit and landed badly, hurting her knee, but not before playing a great game, scoring 17 points in the bout and  making lead jammer status four times, making her the highest scoring jammer for her team. The EMS from Poudre Valley Health Systems were quick to respond and I’m pleased to report her knee was injured, but not broken. We will see her back on the track in 2011!

A quick look at the stats show the Chanel Cartel to be the queens of the ball, final score: Chanel Cartel-140, to Deathrow Dolls-61. With the four highest scoring jammers: Misty Skull Krippler (42 pts), Aimee ArmaLite (36 pts), Rox Yorr Soxov (27 pts) and Sally Terry Confinement with 19 pts (becoming a more formidable jammer with every bout), they were a royal presence on the track. Penalties were pretty evenly distributed, but Chanel came out with the cleanest players as well, with Wambam Shankyama’am, Mary Poppin’ Caps and Sally Terry Confinement staying clear of the penalty box. The only player on Deathrow to remain clear of the box was number 1895, Osh Kosh Beyotch.

Deathrow had a surprising and unfortunate deficit of skaters for this bout. More than a chance to show us they can rock and roll in prom dresses, this bout was also to decide which team would get to lead the next season’s draft, so emotions were higher than the scores and with only one home bout left in the season, our eyes are moving to the horizon to see what awaits us in 2011.
