An exciting conclusion to a great season, the Death Track Dolls capped off their undefeated 2013 season with a win at ToRD’s championship game, Battle for the Boot.
The game started off neck-and-neck, with both teams putting up minimal points. The Dolls opened up the first real lead of the night on natural grand slams, pulling away with a 20 point advantage. From thereon the Dolls hit the track with renewed confidence, racking up points to end the half ahead by over 80 points.
In the second period the Betties came on strong and doubled their score in the first few jams to close the gap to 50 points, but the Dolls surged back to grow their lead and keep the Betties at bay, ensuring their victory.
Final score: Death Track Dolls 258 – 73 Smoke City Betties
So concludes the 2013 home season for Toronto Roller Derby, but the Boot was not the last action you will see from us.
