After a couple hard-fought bouts against Rage City and Yukon teams last season, the Juneau Rollergirls’s travel team secured their first win in their first bout in Season 2 against the North Pole Babes in Toyland last Saturday, September 29th at Juneau’s Centennial Hall. After starting strong against North Pole in the first half, the second half began with Juneau leading 100-65. North Pole kept things exciting and came back strong in the second half coming within 20 points of closing the point gap, but Juneau was able to keep North Pole at bay, finally ending the bout 187-136. As voted on by the bouting skaters, the bout MVPs were: North Pole MVP Jammer - Ice Storm & North Pole MVP Blocker - Blitzen Bomb’eer; Juneau MVP Jammer - April Mayhem & Juneau MVP Blocker - Just Julie.
