Skate of Origin 2: VRDL vs ADRD

Photography by Angela McConnell

Another amazing night of derby…I completely lost the plot by the final few jams and had completely forgotten to take photos – which didnt really matter since the whole crowd was on their feet by that stage anyway πŸ™‚

It was great to see such a big turnout, once again I was running late and ended up a few rows back, missing out on prime Suicide Corner action but still got a nice shooting position.
Also was really awesome to see Tonka, Betty Bamalam and BB Bombshell being interviewed for the 7pm Project on Channel 10 – the interview with Tonka can be found here

Bout 1 Geelong Bloody Marys vs VRDL Big City Bruisers

9 Lives Isis seems to have skates that just stick to the rink – this girl never seems to fall down!! After a hard bout in which one the Bloody Marys is attended by paramedics for a wrist injury, they take out the win over the Big City Bruisers

Bout 2 ADRD Adeladies vs VRDL All Stars

Amazing Amazing bout – goes into double extra time after a draw at 122 all then 131 all in first extra time with the Adeladies taking it out 136 to VRDL 134…

The Adeladies sure know how to work a crowd too – with an awesomely funny intro and very vocal cheer squad!

Next bout September 19
