The walls of the Yaarab Shriner Center shook this Saturday as our Atlanta All-Stars, the Dirty South Derby Girls, recorded their first win of the season over Asheville’s Blue Ridge Rollergirls — and it was one resounding victory. Blue Ridge came out strong, leading DSDG in the first few jams, but DSDG didn’t stand losing for long, and mid-way through the first half were up by over a hundred points. Jammer penalties hurt Blue Ridge again and again, and DSDG jammers profited from them mightily. Though the score widened, Blue Ridge kept DSDG on their toes, and fans were treated to a very physical game of derby, with more than one opposing jammer landing in their laps. Rookie Jean-Juke Picard started her all-star career with power jam after power jam, and nary a trip to the penalty box. DSDG’s impeccable defense held strong to the end, and kept Blue Ridge to only 49 points. Final score was 479-49.
