mAlice in DerbyLand – the South West Sydney Rockets fight for glory

After a year and a half in existence and holding true to our motto of blood, sweat and bruises, the South West Sydney Rockets have overcome adversity to hold our first public bout in New South Wales and the second game of our first intra-league season - and I'm not just talking about the adversity of derby!

The mAlice in DerbyLand themed bout was held at Minto Indoor Sports Centre on the 7th of August and while most of the action was caused by the skaters, mild panic set in when a thunderstorm caused hail to come through the roof landing on skaters and falling onto the track.

Once the hailstones were removed by some very helpful NSOs and refs, the bout was able to kick off. The intraleague affair was themed on the famous fable of Alice in Wonderland - but with a twist. The SindeRollers, dressed as the Queen of Hearts Army, took on the twisted persona of The SteamRollers and their mAlice's - good Alice gone derby.

Maintaining the theme of Alice's journey down the rabbit hole, the league's two score girls donned Queen of Hearts and Cheshire Cat costumes to keep the crowd entertained, as some very pretty princesses' hosted a derby themed Mad Hatters Tea Party - complete with cupcakes, cookies and even a roller skate cake, before the bout kicked off with over 250 fans turning up on a very rainy winters day to cheer the two teams on.

The first half was hotly contested with close scores on each side, with Kimakaze kicking of the lead for the Sinderollers in the first jam, but with The SteamRollers going full throttle, the Electric Blue babes went into half time with a two point lead over The SinderRollers, with scores sitting at 76 to 74.

The Standout jammers of the first half included MeliminateHer and D.Viant.Dee for The SteamRollers, and Kimakaze for the SindeRollers who all scored major points for there teams.

Blocker and Pivot standouts were KillaBee, She-Riff & Killawatts for the Electric Blues, with Britney Speartackle, De-Nominator, Dita Von Bruiser and Impure Blonde pounding the opposition to victory.

The second half was a fierce battle between the two teams, with jammers Y.T Rad Robin, D.Viant.Dee & MeliminateHer helping the blue team amass more points to the board.

With Lil’Tamtrum, Strawbr’y Slaughtercake and Kimakaze keeping the blue team fighting for points.

it was neck and neck until both jammers were sent to the box. Ann O’War from the Sinderollers and She-Riff from the SteamRollers turning out a power jam each for there teams, with the final three jams determining the match, It was the Hot Pink Sinderollers who took their team home to win 141 to 115

SWSR’s celebrations continued into the night at the Bradbury Inn after party.

The league's final intraleague bout for 2011 between the Sinerollers and the Electric Blues is in December; affectionately themed “Bout-Mare before Christmas” Team Blue will be giving it there everything to make sure the Sinderollers do not finish 2011 undefeated
