Busy weekend: C-cassette and AL-pakka nailed it at Joensuu, Queen B’s played a real nail biter in Gothenburg

It sure was one busy weekend! Oh, and we ‘ve got big news: we have a new team, called AL-pakkas! Our 2 years time in Bunkkeri allowed us to raise a whole new generation of players, and this meant that we could develop our C-team into a more competitive crew, and build a new recreational team for the whole league. Both the new, shiny and more competitive C-cassette, and brand-new AL-pakka got to prove what they’ ve got last Saturday at Joensuu, and meanwhile in Sweden our Queen B ‘s played a real nailbiter in Gothenburg.

C-cassette took a clear win over Joensuu Rolling Rogues

C-cassette traveled to Joensuu on Saturday to play against the Joensuu Rolling Rogues, the winner of last years Finnish Division 1*. We separated our C-cassette from our all-league skaters in the beginning of the year: this resulted in to a more competitive C-team, and a new all-league team called “AL-pakka”. Given that our B/C-crossover players were mostly traveling to Gothenburg at the same time, a tight game was expected, with some new roles. It was also the first official game with their new coach, Ville Koivula. C-cassette nailed the game, the final score was 112-230 for us.

*Here in Finland we have Finnish Nationals (Suomi Cup) series with 6 teams, and under that the Division 1 (Ykkösdivisioona) with 4 teams. Division 1 winner gets to play against the last team on Finnish Nationals, and by winning that there’ s a change of getting to the Finnish National series.

AL-pakkas first ever game against Joensuu B-team, Rolling Raccoons

Also our newest darlings, AL-pakkas, mostly formed from last autumns and this falls freshmeat

Queen B’s fun-filled 5 year anniversary at Tenerife: rematch against their first ever opponent

Due to the changing of the Finnish Nationals seasons ‘ schedule, Queen B’ s are at the moment “between seasons” . This means that it ‘s a good time to learn new strategies,  integrate new players to the team, travel and meet new friends! In the beginning of February, Bees travelled to Tenerife to honour the anniversary of a game played exactly five years ago: Tenerife Roller Derby against Helsinki Roller Derby B-team. 

Five years ago the game was really even, and it was also the very first real game for both teams! HRD B-team managed to win the tough game with the final score of 79-110. Now the game ended with a clearer victory for the Bees: 38-343, leading to the historically high 15th position in Europe for Queen B’ s!

Regardless of the heavy attacks of the annual flu season to the Queen B ‘s crew (think you Cisse for bringing the medication -we highly recommend the nasal douche to everyone!), Queen B’ s played a strong game, and got to test their strategy book. Bees were strong with the starting strategies,
