April was the first time I got to shoot as an official photographer for the Texas Rollergirls. It was certainly interesting to see the bout from zebra land. I never felt like I got into a groove the whole night, not sure if it was nerves, or just trying different camera settings.
The first bout was the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers and the Hotrod Honeys. The Heartbreakers took an early lead, and held it till the second period, when the Honeys pulled a great comeback. The match ended in a nail biter of a final jam. I have also never seen the penalty box have such a revolving door.
Final score: Honky Tonk Heartbreakers 136 – Hotrod Honeys 134
Next up was Hell Marys and the Hustlers. The Hell Marys took an early lead, and held it for the whole bout. The Hell Marys are now up 2-0 on the season, and have looked impressive.
Final score: Hell Marys 165 – Hustlers 69
The Derby Brats scrimmaged during both Halftimes, and they were just great.
This month I decided to do something different, and just use some of the B/W shots I ended up with.
Hope to see you there next month, it should be a great matchup: The Texecutioners vs the Portland Wheels of Justice. Both all star teams, it should make for some great flat track action.
