The 2015 travel season is underway!
Last Friday, TCDG’s charter team headed down to southern Florida. While it was a long trip — the furthest that the team has ever traveled to play — it was a fabulous opportunity for TCDG to take on two strong and well-ranked opponents in one trip.
On Saturday night, Twin City’s Evil Twins faced the 62nd-ranked Gold Coast in a fast-paced bout that saw some amazing work from all of the women in green. Particular shout-outs to MVP jammer SPECTRE and MVP blocker Mrs. T.
Gold Coast came out of the gate sprinting and kept the pressure on every moment throughout the first half, going into halftime with a sizeable lead. TCDG started the second half down by 51, but held Gold Coast to every single point.
Final score was TCDG 96 to Gold Coast 148.
On Sunday morning, the Twins started bright and early down the road in North Lauderdale, against the visiting Fort Myers Derby Girls. It was a close chase throughout the morning, but Fort Myers kept their lead and took the win in the end.
Final score was TCDG 143 to Fort Myers 191.
Thanks to the Gold Coast Derby Girls for hosting us for both games. It takes a lot of volunteers to put on a roller derby bout, and we’re grateful to Gold Coast and their great crew for making this weekend happen!
The team is still fundraising to help with costs for this trip If you would like to help us out, please visit our GoFundMe page and donate — any amount is greatly appreciated!
