The Candy Crushers prevailed 185-112 over the visiting NWO Honey Badgers from Chilliwack last Saturday in a highly anticipated and hard-fought roller derby clash at the Island Savings Centre.
"The Candy Crushers were sportsmanlike and clean with a fast-paced, hard-hitting game," coach Miss B Haven (Amanda Gould) said. "We had a few issues with
unsportsmanlike behaviour from the opposing team and it did not end on great terms but the Crushers were professional and classy as always."
The night opened with the first official bout for the Sugar Bombs, the Candy Crushers’ B team, who lost 278-151 to the Honey Badgers B team.
"It was a great debut for the Sugar Bombs and they played a fun game," Miss B Haven said.
