LRR's First Intraleague Bout

Apologies for the late posting ...
Uncivil War -
NeanderDolls vs Voodoo Skull Krushers

It was fierce, it was hard fought, and it was close, but the Voodoo Skull Krushers held on to the lead to secure the inaugural victory in the first London Rockin' Rollers intraleague season.

Both teams put on a great show for the crowd. The NeanderDolls skated out to Wild Thing, wearing leopard print outfits and brandishing clubs and bones. The Voodoo Skull Krushers, resplendent in green and purple, carried shrunken heads and talismanic poles while Voodoo People played in the background.

On the track there was no let up. Both teams played similar tactics - racing to take the front and form a wall to prevent the opposition jammer getting through. The hits were hard, there were penalties apiece and the pace was hectic. At half time the VSKs had a 17 point lead, at 51:34, but it didn't last long. The NeanderDolls fought back to go into the lead early in the second half, but could not stop the might of the Voodoos. The game finished 98:95 in the Voodoo's favour, but it might so easily have gone the other way.

Kit, LRR
