Roller Derby: JCRD Flattened by Castle Rock 120-71

by Bill Frost
- Posted // 2010-05-24 - Saturday, May 22: Ogden’s Junction City Roller Dolls hosted Colorado’s Castle Rock & Rollers at the Davis Conference Center in Layton; JCRD’s all-star Trainwrecks vs. CRR’s Greatest Hits.

The Trainwrecks hit the scoreboard first, but their lead was short-lived: Greatest Hits jammers Triple Shot Misto and Ctrl-Alt-Delete proved to be an unbeatable scoring combo by the third jam and kept CRR well ahead for the rest of the bout. Not that JCRD jammers Colonel Skirts, Slick Tease, Sarin Gasp and Le Tigre (skating her final bout with the league) didn’t give it their all—in particular, Sarin Gasp was playing so aggressively it was tough to tell if she was on offense or defense at any given point. Score at halftime: Castle Rock 50, Junction City 36.

In the second half, the rest of the Trainwrecks took a cue from Sarin Gasp’s balls-out attitude and strengthened their defense. On the scoring front, team captain Colonel Skirts made several impressive point-grabs, even nailing a double Hot Trick (a 10-point jam) late in the half. But, JCRD could never overtake CRR’s lead. Final score: Castle Rock 120, Junction City 71.

Next Junction City Roller Dolls bout: Saturday, June 5 at Ogden’s Golden Spike Arena. Tickets and info: JCRDolls.com. Full local league schedules: Utah Roller Derby: 2010 Preview.

Thank you Mr. Bill Frost for what you do in your blogs to report the Derby to the throngs of fans and others who have not yet made it to the bouts.

As always the photos are great, and as long as they don't look like you just downed a fifth of Tequilla, and you can see the uniform colors, you are good to go

Not everyone can be O'Durgy or Comcast, but the fact that we care and contribute to the promotions and support the Great Roller Dolls/Skate Girls, I think we are still doing better than ever. Besides how many DUDES LIKE US CAN GET ALL THAT HOTNESS in one evening?

Keep up the good work you have my endorsement
