The Surly Griffins win 150 to the Black n Blue Belles’ 132 in a bout that starred performances from the B‘s newest Wrecker, 1st, and newest jammer, Prairie Scorn. Amidst strong Griffin defence and offence 1st head-on out-jammed veteran Griffin Amykazeee (who looked to need a cuppa and a lie-down) but also smashed Griffins, which is what you want at Derby, good jam and smashing. A jam from 0+ capitalised on Griffins distracted by Amykazeee’s calls for help, help, but B defense couldn’t intercept the Griffin’s Aunty Aggro, Rainbow Spite or Cassatrophic who all made up for Amykazeee. The Bs also missed opportunities to keep Griffins binned, the Bs lacked a rolling Cleaver, Short Stop looked distracted then exhausted, Jam Pants stoic efforts didn’t gain enough, and the Bs didn’t exploit Amykazeee’s skating weakness, all this left the Surly Griffins to win by 18 points.
Where are you Cleaver?
