SFVRD's Wipeouts and the Mojave Rattleskaters

SFVRD's Wipeouts and the Mojave Rattleskaters

This month, the Wipeouts picked up a few of the Fer Sures and hit the road, heading out into the land of the Joshua trees to take on the Mojave Rattleskaters. Although the temperature plummeted when the sun set, the track was white hot with tons of SFV heat. Strong walls, killer strategy, and lightening fast jammers allowed the Wipeouts to gain a quick lead which they kept adding to throughout the bout. When the last whistle was blown, the final score was 75 to 219 SFV!

The Wipeouts finished off November with the home floor advantage against the Wasteland Derby Dames of Antelope Valley. Wasteland's defense had proved toxic to more than one league in 2015 and they were determined to show the ladies of SFV which Valley was full of truly unstoppable skaters. The Wipeouts, in turn, were ready to live up to their name and bring a tsunami of force to knock the opposing skaters off their wheels. Neither team backed down and an evening of awesome derby ensued with Wasteland taking the win 178 to 137.
