Derby Dames come up short in home opener

In its season home opener, the Los Alamos Derby Dames fell to Albuquerque Roller Derby 212-71 at the Los Alamos County Ice Rink.

It was the first time the Derby Dames had competed in nearly a month, dating back to April 22.

The game remained close toward the beginning, as Albuquerque led just 27-21 10 minutes in.

This was due to the strong work of Los Alamos’ Super-Ova, as well as strong blocking from the entire team. This blocking did not allow Albuquerque to utilize its superior speed to its advantage.

With 11 minutes remaining in the first half, the Derby Dames continued to keep the game close. A series of penalties led to power jams for the Derby Dames, which Acute Pain cashed in for 10 unanswered points, keeping the score within striking distance at 55-45.

Toward the end of the first half, however, Albuquerque began asserting its will as its jammers began breaking through the blocking of the Derby Dames and earning lead jammer status.

This allowed the Albuquerque jammers to score points without allowing the Derby Dames to score, by ending jams before the Los Alamos jammers could reach the pack of blockers.
