The Sioux Falls Roller Dollz kicked off Season 8 with back-to-back weekends of away games with tough teams. First up, on Saturday, February 8th the Dollz faced off against the Fargo Moorhead Derby Girls on their home turf in downtown Fargo. Ranked 64 internationally, FMDG has been steadily climbing in the rankings the past few years and delivered a devastating blow-out victory over the Dollz in 2013.
As the first bout of the season the Dollz worked hard on reviewing strategy and integrating new skaters to take on the tough North Dakota team. Known as a team that plays fierce offense with fast jammers, the Dollz brought a solid defensive wall which was highly effective in the first half to keep FMDG in check. The Dollz went to the locker room at half time with a slim lead, 78 to 71.
But in the second period penalties began to take their toll as the Dollz found their jammers in the box frequently and FMDG's effective offense during the power jams racking up the score. The Dollz didn't go down without a fight though, with the official final score of the evening 203 over the Dollz' 153.
The following weekend the Dollz were a little closer to their home turf for an away game at the Swiftel Center in Brooking, SD on February 15th. A co-sponsored bout with the new Brookings derby team, the Midwest Maidens, the event was an exciting double-header game to support the Girl Scouts of America and the Roller Dollz travel fund. The Dollz were taking the track against their home-town rivals, the Sioux City Roller Dames.Continue reading…
