Pull out close victory over Rebel Belles

SLEMON PARK – If the home and season opener for the Summerside Twisted Sisters is any indication of the season to come, 2018 is looking like a promising one for Summerside’s roller derby team.  
The Twisted Sisters pulled out a 215-131 victory over the Avon River Rebel Belles, who put up a strong fight in the entertaining roller derby bout, at The Plex on Saturday night.
The Twisted Sisters, who came out with first-game enthusiasm and big hits, found themselves spending too much time in the penalty box. However, they calmed down by the second half, adjusting to a much cleaner game.
Twisted Sisters’ veteran jammers Didi Kenny and Kendra MacLellan showed again and again their agility skills in getting around the Belles’ blockers, and rookie jammer Alicia Arsenault had a great first game, sneaking around the pack time after time. The Belles’ blockers worked well together on both offence and defence, and met the challenge of the Twisted Sisters’ blockers, but couldn’t outplay the defensive force of the frontline vets.
With their first bout of the season under their belt, the Twisted Sisters are looking forward to their next home bout on July 14 that will be part of the Lobster Carnival.
