Highlights from the Oct. 26th Bout - Pair O' Dice City Rollers vs. Worcester Warheads

Starting off the line...

This past Sunday was POD's final game of the 2014 season.  Though we lost, we were playing against Worcester Roller Derby's Warheads and the Worcester Roller Derby Organization is a WFTDA League so they strive to play competitively at the national level.  POD as a team takes the attitude that we do our best in every game and if we can give these ladies a run for their money then we're doing just fine! As always, POD grew stronger as the game progressed and we showed WoRD in the end that we just won't quit.

In fact, during the game we built some beautiful walls!!

Vixen, Ballistic Miss L, and the Italian Assassin holding strong.

Suga Burn, Donny Brook, and Meryl Creep hold off the opposing jammer.

Astra Knot, Vicious Aloysuis, and Meryl Creep brace for impact. 

We gave and took some great hits!

Astra Knot (in her first game back since breaking her leg...)
gives it good to the opposing jammer.

Ballistic Miss L takes out the opposing jammer, while also making room
for Vixen, POD's jammer, to squeak through.

Haulin' Sass takes a lickin' and keeps on kickin' 

We worked to play strongly both offensively and defensively, utilizing strategies we've been working on for the last few months in practice.

Astra Knot sweeps their line to make a hole for jammer, Suga Burn, to sneak through.

The Italian Assassin helps to hold up one of WoRD's blockers
while POD jammer, Vixen, just edges past another player.   
While POD jammer, Killer Kush, fights to get by, the POD blockers
reform a solid wall, ready for the WoRD jammer to try to come through. 

After a successful star pass, one of PODs blockers,
Vicious Aloysius, becomes jammer and proves she can hold her own.

Though the final score doesn't necessarily reflect it, POD's jammers turned things up a notch in the second half, including one final jam by Vixen, who scored a whopping 25 points in that jam alone!

Congratulations to Ballistic Miss L and Vixen from POD
and Megzatron and Nikko from WoRD! 

Thank you to everyone who has attended one of our games this season.  
We hope to see you again next year!
