First Roadie of the Year

On Saturday 30th March the Nightmares loaded up their cars and took off for Hamilton to face Hellmilton Roller Ghouls’ Raggedy Angst in our opening game of the season.

Our juniors, Hell Razors also came with us to put on an opening exhibition bout with the junior skaters Hamilton have. As expected the juniors played brilliantly and hopefully will help Hamilton recruit more juniors for their team.

The senior game was awesome to watch with Hells Wives coming away with a win of 172-148, a great way to open the season. It was touch and go at times, especially towards the end when we were down to 6 players.

We are now looking forward to our first home game, an exhibition bout which you won’t want to miss!! Watch out for post with all the details very soon

Tournament for Freshies

Our B Team, Night Furyz, with the addition of 4 players from Hellmilton Roller Ghouls,  took a road trip to Taupo to take part in the Fresh ‘N’ Furious tournament 2018 hosted by the Taupo league.

The tournament consisted of four teams competing in a round robin style. Our team (renamed Hells Furyz for the day to take into account the Hamilton players) competed at 110% with the best results

Game 1 – won 237 to 75

Game 2 – won 168 to 91

Game 3 won 200 to 95

All our players outdid themselves and deserved the wins.
