Our Brawlin’ Broads* had a fantastic time at the All Eight on The Floor Tournament, August 5th and 6th.
Hosted by Worcester Roller Derby, the annual B-Team tournament was an excellent opportunity for newer skaters to gain valuable playing experience. Our Broads* skated in four games over the weekend, winning two (against The Hellions of Troy’s Herculadies and Hartford Area Roller Derby’s Beat City Bedrockers,) and losing their final game against Maine Roller Derby’s Old Port Brigade by just 7 points! Their performances earned them 3rd place: Not too shabby for their first ever tournament, against B-Teams from some of the region’s most competitive leagues!
What an amazing opportunity for our Broads* to push themselves and grow, individually, and as a team! Thank you to all of the teams who traveled and played their hearts out, and the officials, NSOs, and volunteers who made this weekend possible!
