Last night, the Harber City Roller Dames earned their first loss of the season against Fargo.
The game was filled with penalties — those Fargo gals played a combination of “slow derby” (crawling around the track in a pack, forming a wall) and had some nasty habits of forcing our gals out of bounds as they tried to pass.
It broke my heart to see the Norwegian Squirrel and Killah Cleta repeatedly slammed out of bounds. To see our lead, graceful angel Wright Round Ya call off the jam after just a few points would have brought a tear to my eye, if I hadn’t a tall beer with me.
I’m still learning how to use an iPad to take video, so apologies for the rough spots on these. But in one of them, you’ll see our local Head of State, Don Ness, trackside. Woot for Our Fearless Leader.
