CCRG, in need of a beach vacation, took a short leave from the Classic City on March 29 and made the trek down to Fort Myers, Fla. to take on the Fort Myers Derby Girls’ Palm City Punishers.
While CCRG fought valiantly, FMDG, a strong Division Two team, took the lead early on and maintained a healthy point spread throughout the bout. CCRG, not a league to squander an opportunity, counts this bout as an awesome learning experience bringing home new strategy and technique to employ in upcoming bouts. Redemption was found at the afterparty where CCRG clearly was the winner.

January 18, 2014
The annual Green v. Black is a new tradition for the Classic City Rollergirls, but it is a tradition that both the rollergirls and their fans have quickly embraced. The Green v. Black is an opportunity for all of the Classic City Rollergirls to exhibit their glittering face paint, their new boutfits, and their finely-honed skills on the track. And, where would be a better venue to showcase the Classic City Rollergirls than their new home The Classic Center? Over 1,000 fans filled the Classic Center to experience the entire Classic City Rollergirls roster duke it out for the Parthenos, the Green v. Black trophy.
Team Green and Black quickly took the line, sizing each other up while waiting for the five-second warning from the Jam-Timer TrogDora the Jaminator. Five. Four. Three. Two. One! And, the girls dashed down the track, skating for position and perforating the pack with holes for their respective jammers. The first period started as a tug-a-war with neither Black nor Green maintaining a point lead for long. But, with power jam after power jam, the ladies in green quickly dominated the scoreboard. The halftime score put Green Team comfortably ahead of Black, 107 to 40. At the beginning of the second period, Team Black hit the track with a griping determination to end Green Team’s momentum. Blockers exchanged hit after hit as Jammers flew around the track with a ferocious rapidity; their wheels sang through the turns as they jockeyed for lead jammer. While Team Black closed the score gap, they continued to struggle with penalties, giving Green more power jam opportunities. As the period clock timed out, Green held their lead over Black, 188 to 112. On Green Team, Super Smash Fro was voted the MVP Blocker, Louis Strongarm the MVP Jammer. On Black Team, AmyTville earned the MVP Blocker plaque, Tina Slay the MVP Jammer. While Green Team secured the Parthenos, the Classic City Rollergirls experienced their first win in the Classic Center. Every rollergirl, Green and Black, skated together as one team during the victory lap. The fans cheered while the Classic City Rollergirls chanted:
“United we skate! Divided they fall! CCRG! CCRG! CCRG!”
