On Saturday, July 25th, The Cape Girardeau Roller Girls took on one of our favorite opponents; Dark River Derby Coalition from Quincy, Illinois. CGRG last played DRDC in August 2014 with Dark River taking the win, 155-108. As expected, DRDC again came out strong with tough walls and quick jammers. Dark River lead during the majority of the game; but on the second to last jam, CGRG took advantage of some big blocking and jamming and came within 7 points of the tie! In the end, Dark River ended up with the lead jammer advantage on the final jam, and CGRG took the loss with a score of 109 to 136. Congratulations to MVP Jammer, Molotov, and MVP Blocker, Salty!
