A Roller Derby Roadtrip…

It’s official: the next best thing after derby? Derby road trips! It was Northland Nightmares’ last game of the season (and our only away game) and last Saturday morning the Hells Wives team and dedicated supporters hit the road for the five hour haul to Tauranga to play Mt Militia Derby Crew‘s Dangerous Curves at Queen Elizabeth II Stadium.

After settling into luxurious accomodation at The Golden Grove Holiday Park, it was time to check out the track and prepare for the game…

And the game? It was really tough and Hells Wives fought it out to the end, but our (much-improved) walls just couldn’t stop their awesome jammers and the final score was 63-178 😦

But, the good news is that reports from experienced spectators say there was definite improvement in strategy from our last bout, something that we will be working hard to improve on over the next few months! It’s not just about how good your physical skills are, it’s the mental ones that will win you the game – and that’s why derby ROCKS 🙂

Thanks to the awesome Mt Militia Derby Crew for hosting us and a big thanks to our amazing Hells Wives Barmy Army (“we may ave bin small, but we were mighty”) for travelling down to support us!

We can’t wait for the next derby road trip so rrrroll on next season!
