The first doubleheader away game of the season! The Lowcountry Highrollers traveled across state lines into Georgia to try their luck against the Savannah Derby Devils this past June 8th. Debuting for the Lowcountry Highrollers B-team, the Bruisin’ Betties, were two rising fresh meat: BarbieHurl and Lana Del RAGE.
The doubleheader kicked off with the Bruisin’ Betties playing the Hostess City Hellions. The first couple of jams were close; the lead changed a few times between the opposing teams. And by half time, the Bruisin’ Betties were charging ahead on the scoreboard. During the second half, both teams were buckling down, fighting hard for the win. After a few power jams for both sides, (on the slick as ice, polished concrete) the Bruisin’ Betties continued their lead in points and came out victorious over the Hostess City Hellions: 206 to 130.
The Most Valuable Player awards went to Spaghetto Fabulous for the Bruisin’ Betties MVP Blocker and Irma Gird for the Bruisin’ Betties MVP Jammer! Both were definitely forces to be reckoned with!
During half time, the Savannah Derby Devils hosted their first Rockabilly Pin-up Pageant and also had an adorable Junior Pageant for the younger ones.
Beautiful outfits and great hair! So much Rockabilly fun!
