Trash Bags host first bout

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


THE Air­lie Beach Trash Bags Roller Derby team di­vided into two teams for their first home bout on Fri­day night at the Whit­sun­day PCYC.

New skaters from Bowen and Mackay were in­vited to play and ref­er­ees trav­elled from Mackay and Townsville for the game.

In a hotly con­tested match, the Blue Suede Bruis­ers beat the Pink Blitz, 364 – 245 with Hay­ley ‘Gretchen Wheel­ers’ Waugh win­ning the most valu­able player award for the night.

Seven Air­lie Beach skaters played their first bout in­cluded Suz ‘Bruise-a-lot’ Crab­tree, Tina ‘Bust-her Tre­drea’ Court, Ka­rina ‘Rina Roars’ Ga­mack, Cathy ‘Puk Her Up’ Pukallus, Jessi ‘ Tickle Me Doll Face’ Egan and Amy ‘Aim N Fire’ Dempsey.

Tina ‘Bust-her Tre­drea’ Court said she was so proud of ev­ery­one for the fan­tas­tic job they did.

“Fri­day night was great, I was so ner­vous at the start but I got out there quite a few times and laid on some good hits. I learnt so much on and off the track,” she said.

Coach Christina ‘ Storm Surge’ Un­ter­wurzacher said that they were very thank­ful for the sup­port of the PCYC.

“We’re so grate­ful we were able to host this game at our train­ing venue, the Whit­sun­day PCYC, but in or­der to have a big­ger crowd we re­ally need a venue that is larger than a sin­gle bas­ket­ball court,” she said.

Any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing derby, whether as a skater, a ref­eree, or an of­fi­cial can head to the fresh meat course be­gin­ning on Sun­day, Au­gust 25 at the PCYC. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.face­­lieBeachTrashBags.
