The Cape Girardeau Rollers Girls took on the Clarksvillain Roller Girls all the way from Clarksville Tennessee on Saturday June 21st at the AC Brase Arena Building. The Clarksvillains put up a good fight but the final score was 278-83.
Highlights of this bout included a dazzling 24 point jam by Queen Cobra to start off the match, and that was just the beginning. Shekill O'neal, Treblesome,Shantastic Vixen, Block Widow, Sue Bob Fight, and Crazy Anya also had successful jams.
At halftime CGRG had a nice solid lead with 130 points verses 21, which allowed them to change their strategy and get some people who have never jammed before to try it out, which allowed for fresh-out-of-fresh-meat Assault-N-Pepa to score 30 points in her very first time jamming! Talk about starting things out with a bang.
Strategy and perseverance paid off in this exciting bout, which had everyone in the audience on their feet cheering at the top of their lungs.
Proceeds of this bout benefited the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri (http://www.capearts.org/) A check was also presented during halftime benefiting Watkins Wildlife Rehab (http://www.watkinswildliferehab.org/)
After the main bout the Cape Girardeau Roller Girls hosted a co-ed expo bout with allowed players and even referees from all over the area to face each other in a fun, but still very competitive environment.
The Cape Girardeau Roller Girls would love to thank the Clarksvillain Roller Girls for making this a memorable bout and we can't wait to see you next year!
