Today marked the home opener for the Junior Warriors. This year they're keeping it simple with two teams and one skill level. The two teams are, of course, Rolling Thunder (in the pink jerseys) and Starry Fright (in the green).
Illumihottie took the jammer line for Starry Fright against Hannibalistic as the first jam was under way. Starry Fright took an early lead but Rolling Thunder eventually caught up in the middle of the period. Just when it looked like Rolling Thunder might pull away, Starry Fright rallied and poured on the points. The score was 101 to 76 in Starry Frights favor by Halftime. The second period went even better for the girls in green as they kept the pressure on. There was brief drama in the 10th jam as Evie Knievel went down with an injury but she was able to leave the track on her own steam so hopefully it's not serious enough to interfere with the rest of her season. Despite losing a jammer, Starry Fright was still able to pull off a victory of 207 to 176.
The Junior Warriors travel team will be taking a trip to Iowa July 12th to take on the Des Moines Derby Brats and the home teams will be back at Winnwood on July 27th.
The last KCRW Underground game will be on Wednesday, June 17th and of course, the season finale, The Rink of Fire on Saturday, June 27th. Need tickets? >CLICK HERE<
