August 23rd, 2014 marked the day when Cape Girardeau Roller Girls hit the track with Dark River Derby Coalition trying to add to their win total for the season. This game carried special meaning for CGRG as they will be saying goodbye to one of their best, SheKill O’Neal. She has been with CGRG for a year and a half and they wanted to say goodbye on a high note.
At the first whistle, SheKill O’Neal quickly made it through the pack and took lead Jammer. CGRG was able to ride their emotion to an early lead. However Dark River was able to withstand the early whirlwind and fight back to take a 21 point lead into halftime. After an intense and brutal second half, Dark River came away with a 155-108 victory.
SheKill O’Neal dominated the track and was awarded MVP Jammer. And Molotov ruthlessly took MVP Blocker.
Dark River got the victory for the game but CGRG got the last laugh as they assisted in dumping ice over the Dark River team for their ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after the hard hitting game. Bbbrrrr.
Be sure to keep a look out for CGRG at the SEMO Fair Parade September 6th. September 27th, CGRG goes head-to-head with Red River Sirens.
