Suburban Brawl began the 2019 season with a win over Enchanted Mountain Roller Derby’s Hellbilly Heartbreakers.
In front of the home crowd at the Yonkers Police Athletic League, Brawl took an early lead but the Heartbreakers battled back. At halftime, Brawl had a slim 30 point advantage. A strong second half from Brawl steadily widened its lead. The final score was 198-124.
Hellbillies’ MVPs were Linda McMayhem (blocker) and Dali D (jammer) and Brawl’s MVPs were Partygirl Accelerator (blocker) and Loraine Acid (jammer), one of Brawl’s newest skaters.
Brawl next faces New Hampshire Roller Derby’s All-Stars on May 4 in New Hampshire. Our next home bout is the Backyard Bullies against Long Island Roller Rebels’ Rock-A-Betty Bruisers on May 11. See you there!
