In their first bout back at the Front Porch, MRG did not disappoint fans waiting for roller derby to return. First up was a junior roller derby bout, that had the crowd on the edge of their seats. The Rome Rollerettes and the Rolling Arsenal of Derby played a fierce game and stayed neck and neck all the way through but in the end, Rome prevailed 238-190. Next MRG was up against The Dixie Derby Girls. The last time MRG bouted against Dixie, MRG was brand new to the derby scene and Dixie took them to the school of hard knocks, defeating them by a huge margin. As hard as they tried Dixie could not overcome MRG’s lead and Dixie was sent on their way back to Alabama with a loss. Bout final score, 199-148 in MRG’s favor. Next bout is August 1, save the date!
