As you know, Hellbat was drafted to the Gore-Gore Rollergirls in October 2011. Prior to that , she skated with the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, better known as the DVAS. Last weekend, the DVAS were slated to play a DVAS vs DVAS bout, red vs black, but last-minute injuries required them to call in some old friends and guess who got to play?
It was great to play with the DVAS again. The rostering decision was made just the week before the bout so I didn’t have a lot of time to get to know the girls but part of the magic of roller derby is that when the skates are on and you’re on the bench, you are a team!
I enjoyed a fair bit of track time, both jamming and also playing in the pack: something I haven’t done since my very first bout with the DVAS in Feb of 2010.
In the end, team red beat team black by a scant 2 points, and everyone agreed it was a nail-biter. As you can see from this pic, losing didn’t bother me in the slightest. DVAS DRAW FIRST BLOOD!
