One of Queenslandâ€™s leading proponents of women's flat track roller derby, the Sun State Roller Girls debuted their latest squad, The Riots, last weekend.
Tackling The Furies, The Riots played a fast paced, strategic game at the Beenleigh Arena March 10.
Scrum style packs saw the blockers working every second to keep their defence tight. This defensive style of pack had the jammers fighting for each and every point. With that, however, you run the risk of penalties on your jammer â€” something The Furies struggled with during the first half of the game.
The Riots took advantage of their power jams gaining a comfortable half time lead of 135-46. During the second half, The Furies fought back, hitting harder, watching their penalties and executing great defensive packs.
A final score of 233-147 to The Riots cemented some fans for the newest home team.
The Sun State Roller Girls next bout is against the Canberra Roller Derby League at the Beenleigh Arena March 24.
