Roller Derby – The Shove Triangle

As anyone following my blog knows I LOVE roller derby.

Last weekend saw the 1st intra-league bout to be held here in Cornwall by the gals at Cornwall Roller Derby (CRD). The bout, called `The Shove Triangle` featured all three of the league`s teams. These were Penzance based Rapscallion Rollers, Newquays Towan Blystra Bombers and Truro`s own Kernow Rollers. Each team bouted the other in a three game frenzy of awesome derby held in the Penzance leisure centre to a packed out crowd. There were the usual thrills and spills and evntaully Kernow Rollers took home the trophey for winning both their bouts. But with all roller derby bouts its never the winning but the way the game is played that counts. And what an AWEsome game (or 3) they were.

Roller on the next local match featuring the CRD road team the Atlantic Breakers as part of the SW:UK Roller Derby season on April 6th!
