what a night..!

In front of a sold out crowd at Holiday Skating Center in Delran, New Jersey, the premier bout of the Penn Jersey She Devils was full of hard hitting, high speed and rough and tumble derby action from the first whistle! The Sadistic Sweethearts and the Fallen Angels matched point for point in the first two periods, only to have the Sweethearts succumb to the third period onslaught of the Fallen Angels, who skated like bats out of hell to win the opening series 50 - 35.
Fans were treated to some early action with an on the rink wrestling match between Candi KaBOOM! and Havoc after they both hit the wood, tangled up in some heavy blocking action, prompting an official time out to break it up and assess the penalties. That little tussle led to some hot tempered action for the next few jams, with Sweethearts and Angels hitting the floor and a few skaters winding up in the crowd, giving a few surprised fans a big She Devils "Hi, how are you!".
Among those fans were some of our derby sisters in arms from Harrisburg, PA and Long Island, all great ladies and great supporters and friends of the She Devils, who made the long journey to be on hand for the first night of what promises to be great derby action in the months to come.
Thanks to all the friends, family and fans who came out and showed their love for derby!
