The Classic City Rollergirls traveled to Savannah , Ga. for their last bout of the 2013 season. The Savannah Derby Devils put up a good fight and took the early lead into half time. CCRG rallied with a few impressive power jams and pushed ahead for the lead. Once on top, CCRG didn’t stop there! CCRG pulled together for win 165-124!
It was a bittersweet victory as we said goodbye to several skaters: Poke A. Dot, Mosh-ya Brady and Savoy Scuffle. We wish them all the best and have many fond memories of these amazing skaters.
