Cape Cod Roller Derby’s Salty Dolls took home a win Saturday June 2nd in their bout against Broome County’s Parlor City Tricks in Endicott, New York. It was a nail-biter of a game, with several lead changes throughout, and a final score of 157-147. Emma “Cha Cha” Dubner of Marstons Mills and Hannah “Polly Trauma” McAbee of Plymouth earned the Most Valuable Jammer and Most Valuable Blocker titles, respectively. Though, McAbee graciously and quietly presented her award to teammate Rachel “Wreck-It” Hutchinson of Brewster whose exceptional jamming in the second half brought The Dolls back from behind, securing them the win.
The Tricks will make their way to the Cape later this summer for a re-match. In the meantime, The Salty Dolls are prepping for their next home game, Saturday June 9th, against the Beat City Bedrockers of Hartford Area Roller Derby (HARD). The two teams last bouted in 2016 in Connecticut with HARD taking the win. The Dolls are 2-2 this season, but they’re going into this game with the home advantage, a full roster of twelve skaters, and the momentum of last weekend’s win.
The June 9th bout takes place at Cape Cod Community College. Doors open at 4:00 pm and the game starts at 5:00 pm. All are welcome to attend.
