First ever Dutch roller derby bout in Essen, Germany
This weekend the Amsterdam Derby Dames (of which Orangemaster is a member) went to Essen for their first ever official match (there was a scrimmage of mixed Dutch and Belgian teams a couple of weeks ago, which is a practice match). This also made it the first ever bout of any Dutch team.
The hosts, the Ruhrpott Roller Girls from Essen, Germany, beat the Dutch ladies handsomely, 165 – 83. Still it was a great game, and I assume, a great learning experience.
