Roller Derby Roundup: The Honeys Steal A Win From The Mob

Game 2 of Providence Roller Derby’s 2018 home season took place on Saturday, July 28, and the Mob Squad battled the Old Money Honeys. The Mob, coming off a loss in June to the Sakonnet River Roller Rats, were hoping to even out the playing field with a victory. However, the Honeys came out strong with multiple lead jams and high scoring passes.

#40 Milla Lowlife, captain of the Honeys, skated the highest scoring jam of the bout with 22 points. Not to be outdone, #31 Smashley Olsen, captain of the Mob, fired back an 18-point jam in the second half. By halftime, the Honeys were ahead 43-103. Providing some of the hard-hitting blocking for their teams, both Honeys’ #2350 Freak’n Awesome and Mob’s #247 Hot Sauce were awarded MVP Blockers of the bout.

Shining like the diamond in their logo, the Honeys captured the win with a final score of 110-178. Of the 178 points, #401 Trophy Knife sacked 42 points. Joining her were #6 Jetta Von Diesel and #88 Jamie Lee HurtUs with 33 points each. Of the Mob’s 110 points, #17 Goldie rolled in 43 points and Smashley with 39 points.

Before moving onto the Home Season Championship, The Honeys still have to face the Sakonnet River Roller Rats on Saturday, August 18 at Thayer Arena in Warwick. Tickets are available at the doors at 6pm or can be purchased in advance at providencerollerderby.com.
