On February 25th, Jet City Roller Derby traveled south to Salem, Oregon, to take on Cherry City Roller Derby in a triple header. Despite the tough competition, Jet City Roller Derby demonstrated their skill and determination on the track.
Jet City’s seasoned players, including Hydraulic Tess, Crash Smashem, and Mary Contrary, along with newcomer Iron Rabbit, put on a solid jammer rotation that kept the team competitive.
But it wasn’t just the jammers who shined in this game. The blockers played an equally important role, working tirelessly to prevent the opposing team’s jammer from scoring. Both teams demonstrated excellent lateral movement and endless reforming to shut down jammers and execute successful defense.
Jet City’s Bombshell delivered devastating blows to Cherry City’s jammers, preventing them from breaking free from the pack. And it wasn’t just Bombshell who stood out, as players Legs, Tofu, and Crash were also recognized as some of the most valuable players of the night.
Teamwork and strategy were key components of Jet City’s success, and the blockers undoubtedly played a crucial role in securing the team’s impressive win with a final score of Jet City 275, Cherry City 32.
