April 17th 2016, Victoria B.C.: It was a lopsided victory for the Eves of Destruction A-Team who handily defeated the Northwest Derby Company in Bremerton, Washington 244-73 Saturday, April 16th.
Thanks to strong performances from Eves’ jammers No Mer’Sea and the Wife of Wrath, the A-Team held the lead for the entire game. As the Northwest Derby Company announcer stated during the bout, the Wife of Wrath “put on a jamming clinic” at Bremerton’s Skateland facility. No Mer’Sea, meanwhile, was awarded game MVP.
The A-Team, comprised of the league’s best players, is now 1-1 on the season. Their next game is July 9th when they meet the Northwest Derby Company again, this time on home turf, at the Archie Browning Arena.
