Skate of Emergency

Adelaide has never seen so much rocking derby action in one place in one day. First, the Adelady Phantoms pack it up with the Sydney City Assassins. By half time, strong pack strategy sees the Phantoms ahead and, after some stunning smashy on both sides with the Phantoms dominating the front of the pack, full time sees the Phantoms roll it home with a final score of AP 129:62 SCA. For the second bout, the Adelady Tornados line up against the North Brisbane Brawl Stars, and exciting jammer on jammer action features in a fierce battle. By half time the Tornados are ahead but not out of reach, but some time in the second half the Tornados break away in a text-book display of derby with excessive booty blocking and bring home a whirlwind win of AT 154:71 NBB. And once the final four whistles are blown, for the Adelaide, Sydney and North Brisbane rollergirls it’s all about a shared love of roller derby. Sadly though, some people had the wrong kind of fun, and the Team Zebra mascot, Debra the inflatable zebra, was stolen after the bout. Anyone with information that may assist in her safe return is asked to contact ADRD.
