Wow! 2019 Was going to be our year. After coming second last year made us so much more hungrier to bring home gold this year. 7 of our skaters made the QLD National Squad. Tenacious Deegs, Savage, Wolf, Mini Murder-Her, MadDog, Junkyard, Side Swipe Her (Reserve). These guys trained so much harder then last year and you could see how hungry they were for it.
First they went up against South Australia and won. There second game they lost against NSW but you could tell that our juniors were holding a lot back. Considering the way the draw went this game was really just a fill in game as tomorrows game was the one that counted.
Sunday come around and we were fist up against NSW. Such a strong skating team with some really big guys but our juniors spotted a way that they could take this giant team down. With team work and stamina they skated there hearts out and when the final whistle blew they had nothing left in the tank. A sign that they lay it all on the line…. and what they were rewarded with was a stunning 195 – 127 win over NSW. GOLD!!!!! One of the best derby games a lot of us have seen.
NSW went on to play South Australia and South Australia took the win coming in at second place.
