RollerGirls fall in Kansas
TOPEKA, Kan. The 580 RollerGirls rolled a long way with a short squad to fall Saturday night to the Capital City Crushers, 276-107.
The Lawton team, now 3-6 for the season, fought hard, said Marie Berberea, a.k.a. Molly Meet Your Maker. An "uphill battle," she said "those are the best games."
"We always feel victorious after, no matter the score," Berberea said.
The start of the game was bleak for 580 as it took several jams to gain more than one point while the Crushers were well into the double digits, she said. The first half ended with 580 trailing, 157-31.
Berberea coached in Daniel Bates absence with assistance from Brittany Katvala a.k.a. Hell'n Agony. The team adjusted a couple of things in its blocking scheme and jammed the jammer better in the second half allowing 580 jammers more time to break through. The strategy helped 580 make a run towards the final score.
MVP Jammer went to Sarina Baltierra, a.k.a. Scarlett JoHatchet, and MVP Blocker went to a "relentless" Missi Singer, a.k.a. Stinger.
