We have traveled with our friend AWOL from Suburbia Roller Derby a couple of times. We traveled to Muir Woods in California, rode bikes around ancient ruins in Thailand, and floated down river together in Laos.
But once you get AWOL on the floor at a roller derby bout in Yonkers, all pleasantries are abandoned. She is likely to knock you onto your tailbone or to fly around you half a dozen times like you’re standing stationary. On this video AWOL received perfect blocking and one teammate was kind enough to smash an opposing player to the ground near the end of the jam.
The ladies are skating this Saturday, June 15 at EJ Murray Memorial in Yonkers, NY.
