The cool air of the Derby Depot was a welcome oasis from the blistering heat this past Saturday evening. Certain people can pull off the sweating your face off look but I am personally not one of them.
For those of you who couldn't pry yourself away from the festivities of Pride, you missed out on a fantastic match between Wasatch Roller Derby’s Bonneville Bone Crushers and Idaho’s Portneuf Valley Bruisers.
The first half started calmly, both teams seeming to try and feel out each others strategies. Bonneville took an early lead as the jams went on, even when they were short stacked on players on the track.
Portneuf tried their hardest to maneuver through the wall of impenetrable blue that was Bonneville, sometimes making it, sometimes not. By halftime, Bonneville was leading 111 to 11.
Halftime was sponsored by the Humane Society of Utah, showing off a few cute pooches eligible for adoption.
The second half started off with a power jam for Bonneville with Clam Jammer racking in 5 points. The next few jams were crucial for BBC, multiple point jams cementing their already cushy lead.
Near the end of the bout, BBC jammer, Vishous Trollop, was getting major hit after hit, one knocking her completely out of bounds. That wasn’t enough to stop her from bringing in some major points.
Bonneville truly lived up to their name last Saturday and crushed the Portneuf girls at a score of 215 to 21.
