It was an exciting start to the 2016-2017 Detroit Roller Derby season this past weekend at the Masonic Temple. All four newly drafted home teams took part in the double header. Fans got to see where their favorite players ended up.
The Detroit Pistoffs and the Devil's Night Dames faced off in the first game of the night and proved why roller derby is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. The match up was full of hard hits and impressive moves on the track. The Pistoffs celebrated their first win of the season with a 343-184 victory over the Dames. The game MVP was Pistoff jammer GiGi Spitfire.
It was a back and forth game between the Grand Prix Madonnas and the D-Funk Allstars. The Grand Prix Madonnas were down 42 points at the half but adjusted their game play and came back to win it. The final score was 231-208. The MVP for that game was Grand Prix Madonna jammer Lunachick.
