Cornfed Bout Recap

Bout Recap: BHRD vs. Cornfed Derby Dames

Cornfed Bout Recap

Bloomington, Ind. — On March 6, your very own Flatliners and Code Blue Assassins took on Cornfed Derby Dames in two exciting regulation scrimmages, eventually walking away with two wins under their belts! The Flatliners started off strong with Teeth racking up points on a power jam. Throughout the game they kept a strong defense with exciting additions added to the roster; Special Sass, recently back from an injury, and Squirrely Shirley, back from retirement. The last jam before halftime may have left fans biting their nails, a score of Flatliners 79 Cornfed 71 and a power jam in Cornfed’s favor, but the Flatliners came back strong and ready to fight for every point! Through a strong till the end defense and a variety of jammers, the Flatliners ended the game with an amazing victory, 211-120!

The Code Blue Assassins took the track next with new additions of Buttercup, a junior transfer from Fort Wayne and Geminihilist, recently moved up from the DO program. Many on the CBA line up are new to derby but don’t let that fool you. Notable jammers for the CBAs were Buffy Smothers, Eternal Glamnation, and Miso. Early in the first half Carl Slaygan provided her team with a much needed power jam when she hit Cornfed’s jammer for a track cut. With a strong defense, the CBAs brought a second victory, 202-154, for your very own Bleeding Heartland Roller Derby!

Charity of the evening: Guatemalan Relief Effort

Our very own retired skater, Bobbi McGuillotine, will be back on a short leave from her time in the Peace Corps for our last home bout of the 2015 season. Bobbi is currently serving in the Peace Corps in Guatemala helping children receive an adequate education. There are very basic necessities over there that are not available, and Bobbi would like to help with that by taking toothbrushes back with her to her Guatemalan home. We are asking everyone who would like to help to bring a toothbrush or donate money at our merch booth, and we will purchase them for you and we will send all of them back with Bobbi to Guatemala!!
