Kent Roller Girls currently sit top of our division in this year’s British Roller Derby Championships following a decisive win on the 23rd April, against Bath.

We hadn’t played Bath before as they were promoted from Division 4 after last season. Both teams took a few jams to get into their rhythm but KRG started strongly with an opening 5 points from our superstar jammer, Vikispeedia. We picked up our momentum in the first half and continued to dominate despite Bath’s tenacity, ending the second half 195-27 to KRG.

Bath rallied at the beginning of the second half, looking threatening against our defence. A strategic timeout from our amazing bench coach on the day, Demi Lition, helped us get the initiative back. The game ended on an impressive 306-95 to KRG!!!

The large score differential puts us on top of the table, ahead of Cornwall who we face in the final weekend of the Championships.

Our next Championships game is at home in Herne Bay on 21 May against the formidable Surrey. Surrey looked impressive against Plymouth this weekend, snatching a narrow victory, so the match-up between the county teams promises to be exciting. Tickets are now available for the game, which is a double-header also featuring Cornwall vs Grin n Barum from North Devon. Get tickets at the link on our website, or see the event page on Facebook
