Recap: North Texas Represents
OKVD’s B team, Tornado Alley, fell to North Texas Roller Derby’s All-star team, The Fighting Unicorns, on Sunday, Feb. 16th.
These two teams have faced each other at least one per season every season for the last three years, with North Texas continuing their winning streak in 2020.
The Fighting Unicorns held formidable walls, strong offense and jammers of wildly varying styles, keeping Tornado Alley on their toes. NTRD co-captain Trouble was particularly formidable as both blocker and jammer. Tornado Alley jammer T-pain put up most of Tornado Alley’s points, but a lack of lead jammer status meant North Texas retained control of much of the game, coming away with a 232-68 win.
“We have a lot to work on,” says Tornado Alley coach Grant Garen. Tornado Alley is currently training up several skaters with less than a year of experience under their belts.
