We’re delighted to announce that Helgin were victorious over Perth opponents, Fair City Rollers, in what was a tense first ever game for both teams!
We’d been training hard for months to get ourselves bout ready for our first outing to the Bell Sports Centre in Perth. From the off it was neck-and-neck, full of nervous energy and, ultimately, came down to a nail-biting finish where we were very close winners by 256 points to 251.
Helgin captain, Melicious Intent said: “It was a brilliant day, something we have been working towards for the last two years. We are incredibly thankful to Inverness Roller Derby and Granite City Roller Derby for their continued support as well as lending us guest players to ensure a full roster for our first game.
“We look forward to further games in the not too distant future – with a full roster from Helgin.”
For Helgin, Best Blocker went to Maple Grief; Best Jammer to Blonde Rambition, and MVP to captain, Melicious Intent, herself.
Melicious added: “Overall our first bout was a huge success – as a team, we are now looking forward to continuing training at the Elgin Community Centre – and hope that when the Moray Sports Centre is built we can invite Fair City to play us again on our home turf.”
