Courtesy of Josie Cuervo from the Dutchland Rollers:

On Saturday, May 16th, 2009, the Dutchland Derby Rollers' B-team, The Dutchland Blitz, visited the Morristown Madams in Morristown, NJ. This would be the first meeting for these two teams. The Blitz 2009 record so far includes one win; 211-46 over the Mason Dixon Roller Vixens (Hagerstown, MD) on April 25th. The Madams recently fell to the Maine Roller Derby B-Team, the Calamity Janes in March, 116-30.

Suiting up for the Blitz would be captains, Marie Antoithreat and Fujiyama Mama, along with Cherry Crush, Jo Clocker (bout debut!), Leah Loveless, Mara Jaded, Megan Whoopie, Rum N. Choke, Ruthless Ness, Sistine Shrapnel, Spanish Incollision, Stompin' Lizzy Stanton (triumphant return to the track!), and White Thrash. Simply the Beth continues to sit out on a knee injury.

For Morristown, on the track was Assault Shaker, Bozie Banger, Dee Licious, Doom Hilda, Inna Propriate, Killawaltz, Leggorcist, Ova Dose, Predator-In-Chief, Raven Rage, Rogue Rage, Village Vixen, and Yula G.

Dutchland's Rum N. Choke on the jammer line against Morristown's Dee Licious, started the game off 9-1 in the Blitz's favor. Next up, Ruthless Ness lined up for Dutchland against Rogue Rage of the home team. Rogue was able to put 4 points up on the board for her team while Ness was shut out. Jam 3 saw Blitz jammer, Mara Jaded put a 4-0 over Bozie Banger, leaving the score 13-5. Rum N. Choke took the star in jam 4 against Doom Hilda and opened it up for Dutchland to secure their lead with a 15-0 run. Jam 5 saw White Thrash take the line for Dutchland looking to score, however; Dee Licious put down an impressive 12-0, trying to even the score. Ruthless Ness and Rogue Rage would go at it 4-4 in jam 6, while Mara Jaded came back in jam 7 tearing it up over Morristown's Killawaltz 13-0, setting the score 45-21 for the visiting team. Despite these power jams coming from the Blitz, the Madams were determined to keep it close and kept answering back with more points. In jam 8, Bozie put up 8-0 over Rum N. Choke, followed by Rogue Rage gaining 2-0 over Ruthless Ness. In jam 10 however, Dutchland's Mara Jaded put 5-0 on Dee Licious. Jams 11, 12, and 13 saw both jammers scoreless; followed by jam 14 where Killwaltz would put 4-0 over Mara Jaded. Doom Hilda gained another 2-0 for the home team in jam 15, while Rum N. Choke was able to answer back with a 4-2 over Dee Licious in the final jam of the period; leaving the score 54-39 in the Dutchland Blitz's favor.

Period two started with neither Rogue Rage nor Ruthless Ness able to put any points up for their teams. Jam 18 saw Rum N. Choke put 9 points to Bozie Banger's 4. Jams 19 and 20 would remain scoreless for both teams. Jam 21 was a pivotal jam as Dee Licious was able to score 4-1 over Mara Jaded's 1, this jam was significant in that it was the last time the Blitz would allow the Madams to score over the next 7 jams, delivering an impressive run of jamming and defense. Rum N. Choke put up another 12 point jam, followed by Ruthless Ness's own 15. Over the next 5 jams, while the Madams remained stuck in a Dutchland pack and in the penalty box, the visitors' 3 jammer rotation would put up another combined 14 points, leaving the score 105-47. Jam 28 saw Dee Licious finally put some points up for her team, however, Ruthless Ness was also able to score, giving the home team little advantage with a 3-2 run. Killawaltz would be slightly more successful in jam 30, putting 5-1 over Rum N. Choke. The final jam of the game saw Ruthless Ness seal the deal with another 12 pointer. The final score in Dutchland's favor was 120-59.

Leading in scoring for the Dutchland Blitz was Rum N. Choke with almost half the team's points at 58 (4.8 pts/jam), Ruthless Ness followed with 33 points (3 pts/jam), and Mara Jaded delivered 29 points (3.6 pts/jam). Choke and Ness were tied for highest single scoring jam of the game with 15 each. There was no penalty information available at press time for Dutchland.

For Morristown, Dee Licious led with 22 points (3.7 pts/jam) and had the highest scoring single jam for her team with 12 points.

Overall, the Madams were assigned 46 minors and 10 majors.
