Trash Bags play first official bout
SKATERS from the Airlie Beach Trash Bags Roller Derby team played their first official bout in their brand new uniforms at the weekend.
Skaters travelled to Bundaberg to compete in the triple header event, along with teams from the Rum City Derby Dolls, Cap Coast Sirens and the Coastal Assassins from the Sunshine Coast.
Skaters Christine ‘Boss in Boots’ Cleary from Proserpine, Paola ‘Pink Piranha’ Migliorini and Tina ‘Dirty Marteeny’ Cionti from Jubilee Pocket and Anji ‘Sugar n’ Strife’ Young from Bowen were playing their first bout and they gave it their all.
Head coach Alyssa ‘Jessica Rammit’ Cutuli said she was very proud of the dedication shown and the effort the girls put in.
“I’m thrilled with the effort these four new players put into their training in recent months. All of them have proven themselves to be valuable team players on the track, and they made a significant contribution to our final score.” Alyssa said.
“Ahuge thank you also has to go to our bench managers, Tessa ‘Sinderella Slamher’ Fagan and Jessi ‘Tickle Me Doll Face’ Egan, both from Jubilee Pocket, who excelled in their supportive role.”
The final score was 220-107 with the win going to the Coastal Assassins.
“We were so excited to see that we had scored over 100 points against the team who went on to win the grand final in the end,” Fagan said.
“For a team of new players, that is an extraordinary effort, in both offensive and defensive play.”
