Cape Girardeau Roller Girls vs. MO-KAN

The Cape Girardeau Roller Girls second bout of the 2014 season was a hard hitting, action packed match against the Mo-Kan Roller Girlz from Joplin, Missouri on Saturday March 29.

CGRG and Mo-Kan first met last June at the Midwest Derbyfest Tournament in Lebannon, Mo. Mo-Kan won that bout knocking CGRG out of the double elimination tournament. CGRG was ready for a rematch.

Mo-Kan came out strong in the first half with a solid defense, only allowing CGRG 15 points to Mo-Kan's 118. Although Mo-Kan had a substantial lead CGRG came back in the second half more determined than ever to overcome the point gap. CGRG's defense strengthened as our jammer rotation of Queen Cobra, Flesner, SheKill Oneal, Block Widow, Molotov, Wicked Witch of the Midwest and Crazy Anya persevered on scoring an additional 90 points in the second half. With CGRG's defenses working overtime the second half to stop the point bleeding , our talented blockers worked hard at slowing Mo-Kan's jammers as well as penetrating the walls of Mo-Kan blockers. With a final score of 242-105, Mo-Kan took the win.

Bruise Fairy was voted MVP blocker and Queen Cobra the MVP jammer.

CGRG played every jam like it was the first, fighting hard and fast, cheered on by their fantastic fans. They say they look forward to seeing everyone again on April 26 at the Brase Arena building.
