It was cool fall day in Muncie when they descended on Gibson’s Arena. No one knows how they got there or what caused their ghastly pale skin, but one thing was clear: they were there to play.
The Cornfed Derby Dames took on the Gem City Rollergirls (Dayton, OH) in their last bout of the season. Both teams played a hard hitting, smart game, no one giving up until the final jam ended. Cornfed struggled to hold back Gem’s quick jammers, but responded with their own fast jamming and defensive walls. While Gem City gained a large lead in the first half, Cornfed held a strong defense and continued to close the gap after halftime. However, even with a last jam rally from OCDiva, Gem City pulled out a win with a score of 139-68.
I would like to thank our amazing fans for giving us a fantastic first season, we couldn’t have done any of this without you and look forward to coming back strong next season. Friends were made, derby lessons learned, and your favorite derby girls cannot wait to bring you another season of roller derby in 2012!
If you cannot get enough derby and want to take your derby obsession to the next level, join us for our Fresh Meat Clinic on November 20th! We look forward to helping grow this amazing sport in Muncie.
