Trash Bags play first of­fi­cial bout

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.”

GIRL POWER: Tina 'Dirty Mar­TEENy' Cionti, Paola 'Pink Pi­ranha' Miglior­ini and Chris­tine 'Boss in Boots' Cleary made their de­but for the Air­lie Beach Trash Bags in Bund­aberg last week­end.
