LBRG have taken their second consecutive win in this year’s British Championship tournament.
The scene was set.
Bombers vs Vixens.
The last time these teams met on the track, LBRG lost by a mere two points, and there was no way we were going to let that happen again! The Bombers dominated from the start with Mills hot on the heels (wheels!) of the Vixen’s jammer, forcing her to call off her lead. LBRG’s dominance started there and carried on throughout the whole game! An error from the Vixen jammer, who called off the jam when she was not lead, opened up an opportunity for the Bombers to rack up some points and really break away. Invincibeel did not disappoint and managed to put in a strong show of a power jam. With eight minutes left of the first half, LBRG had accrued 100 points to the Vixen’s 13. Another power jam paved the way for the Bombers to add even more to their total and the half ended with a score of LBRG 133-42 VV.
The game resumed in the second half and the Bombers resumed their point scoring ways. Some strong performances from a, now, wider rotation of LBRG jammers meant it was tough for the Vixens to contain the vast array of skills on display. Just when everyone thought it was over, the Vixens bench coach called for an official review. Although the referees upheld their decision, one more jam was called for. Mizza Murica stepped up to jam and the Bomber bench held its breath; lead jammer once again for Mizza! A couple of cheeky scoring passes later and the actual final whistle was blown with a final score of LBRG 304-92 VV. A fantastic performance from LBRG – well done ladies!
