On Saturday, May 21, the Dallas Derby Devils hosted bout 2 of their regular season. Despite the “end of the world” looming on the horizon, the Devils managed to put on a very interesting triple-header. Rebel was up to his usual antics when not being required in his professional capacity. The energy was high as the fans filled the seats.
In the first game of the night, the Hell Razors played the Randall County Roller Dames. Well, they played most of the Randall County girls. Due to a series of unfortunate events, the team from Randall County was short too many players to play any kind of official game. The Hell Razors wanted to play, so Randall County was allow to make some substitutions to their roster.
Thank goodness for the Dallas Deception. The boys from the Devils’ brother league stepped up to replace the Randall County girls that had been waylaid by strep throat, car accident and motherly duties.
With the help of Coach Crashanova; Rhino, Haterade, Archie Nemesis, Ninja Please and Slyder, helped the skaters from Randall County to keep fighting until the end. This young team played their hearts out but were no match for the Hell Razors.
Jamming for the Hell Razors: Anita Riot, Roxie La Roo, Brandi Danger, Hot for Teacher, Weapon X, Hollywood Hitcha, Mona Bruisr and Juicy J racked up an impressive 256 points. Top Blockers included: Rink Panther, The Shocker and Kick Face Trace.
Jamming for the Roller Dames: Judas Kiss, Lilo, Whoopi Nass and Archie Nemesis scored 38 points for the team from Amarillo. Top Blockers included: Big Red and Pinky Mingo.
On a heavier note, Ashole of the Roller Dames was injured during the bout. Still waiting to hear about her.
For the next bout of the evening, the Death Row Rumblers took on the Slaughterers. With former travel team skaters Keltic Kamikaze, Jackie Lation, Heike de Skirt and Postal Penny, the Rumblers showed the Slaughterers they meant business. Maniac McGee and her Slaughterers weren’t about to go down without a fight.

In the final bout of the night, played out to a much smaller crowd, the season champion High Seas Hotties battled against the Wrecking Crew in a repeat of the final bout of last season. With Lil’ Dipper gone on shore leave, the pirates of the track had their work cut out for them. Jackie O’Nice Ass and her Wrecking Crew played a good game. The scores were kept low and the point difference was only 2 at the half.
Both teams showed awesome teamwork and excellent blocking. The jammers seemed to be working mostly on their own as each team was focused solely on the others jammer. Fighting for every point, penalties started to have an effect on both teams. Many jams in the second half were with only two skaters from each team in the pack and quite a few instances of skaters having to be waived off at the penalty box. With a final score of 81-57, the High Seas Hotties chalked up another victory in defense of their title.
