Wow! What a Weekend

The First ever Younger Games junior roller derby tournament took place on the weekend and what an action packed day it was.

These dedicated young skaters showed some amazing athletic skills. If anyone thinks junior derby isn’t exciting to watch you having been watching the wrong games! Saturday’s games had all the thrills & spills of a senior game and some skaters I can see as future Team NZ players.

Results for the 3 games were;

Game 1: Guns N Roses 328 – Red Devils 120

Game 2: Hell Razors 244 – Guns N Roses 68

Game 3: Hell Razors 353 – Red Devils 74

Final Placings:

1st Hell Razors

The Excitement is Building!

Some of our Jnrs before training

Our juniors are starting to get very excited about “The Younger Game”, the first junior roller derby tournament in New Zealand being held at Kensington Stadium on 7th September.

Junior Derby is now starting to become popular in New Zealand with many leagues now discovering the benefits of having junior teams in their leagues.

Our Hell Razors have been waiting a long time for this. In their history of game playing, they have only lost one game, against Hellmilton Roller Ghouls’ Monstars.

Their goal in this tournament is to stay the top Junior Roller Derby team in New Zealand.

On the Road Again……….

Friday June 7th  saw us packing our bags once again and making the trip to Palmerston North to play Swamp City Roller Derby. This time our A & B teams went down to battle it out on the flat track. The games were played outside of Palmerston in Pahiatua.

First up was our A team, Hells Wives who battled against Swamp City’s All Stars and a battle it certainly was! Some amazing footwork was seen on both sides along with some big hits. The All Stars were just too strong in the end winning 340 – 101

It was then time for the B teams battle – our Night Furyz against Swamp City’s Honourable Mareikura. This game wasn’t quite as fast paced but was still an awesome game to watch with our Night Furyz pulling  ahead and winning 202 -155.

Thank you Swamp City for being wonderful hosts – we had an awesome time and were made to feel very welcome.

Sadly this is our last senior game for a while. We have not been able to persuade any other derby team in the whole of New Zealand to travel to the Winterless North to play us and have already had to travel to 3 away games in a short time to be able to stay in the ranking table.

We would really like to apologise to all our fans that we haven’t been able to secure home games to come watch as you guys are amazing fans and we hope you will hang in there with us.

We do have a Junior tournament on September 7th at Kensington Stadium which is shaping up to being an incredible tournament, the first Junior tournament ever in NZ and we hope you will come along and support your “Hell Razors” We will be posting more details closer to the date.

Winning Weekend

Early on Friday 24th May we loaded up 3 vans with juniors & seniors and made a 7hr trek down to Sunny Napier.

Saturday afternoon the juniors played first with our Hell Razors taking on Bay City Roller’s junior team, Guns & Roses . The game ended up being played at level 3, a first for a New Zealand junior game. This game was amazing to watch and it showed that junior games can be just as exciting as a senior game.

Final score was 267 – 162 to the Hell Razors

Second game saw Hells Wives take on Bay City Roller’s Twisted Sister. The game was full of big hits and some amazing skating on both sides. Hells Wives proved to be too strong for Twisted Sister on the day and took the win with a score of 253 – 109.

Hells Wives

Thank you Bay City Rollers you were great hosts and we look forward to seeing your juniors in Whangarei on 7th September for “The Younger Games National Junior Tournament”
