Cape Girardeau Roller Derby (CGRD) recently concluded their home season with a 5-3 record. On Saturday, August 15th, for the first time ever, CGRD took on the Roughneck Roller Derby team from Tulsa, OK (new team of former CGRD skater, Shekill O’Neal!). Not knowing what to expect, CGRG came on strong with tough walls and quick jammers. Both teams played excellent defense and offense, giving the crowd a game that was nothing less than exciting; however, once CGRD grabbed the lead, they never let go. In the end, CGRD took the win 230-97. Congratulations to MVP Jammer, Flesner, and MVP Blocker, Salty! The team will conclude the season on the road to Clarksville, TN (09/26/2015) and Columbia, MO (10/17/2015).
As a 501c4 organization, proceeds from every home game benefit a local charity. At halftime, a check for $450 in proceeds from the July 25th game was presented to the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri. The proceeds from the August 15th game will benefit Watkins Wildlife Rehab.
