On 20/11/2016 we played the lovely Northern Rogues - we lost with a final score of 219-62, but we had an awesome day! Here's our post game interview.
What was your strategy going into the game?
Northern Rogues Captain Sugar and Spite: Ok. As a team, our strategy was to play calm and keep our walls strong. For myself as a jammer, my strategy is usually just to keep moving and hopfully find a gap. I try to avoid getting hit if I can!
York Minxters Captain Gem O'Cide: We wanted to use the strategies and walls we have been working on within training. We also have been focusing on structured packs and positions for the champs next year.. as this was the last fun game of the year we decided this would help solidify that but mostly to have fun!
What did you team do well?
Northern Rogues Captain Sugar and Spite: Our team were very good at reforming around a jammer, we kept the pack slow and tried to control it as much as we could
York Minxters Captain Gem O'Cide: Mostly we kept to the strategy and walled up well together. We smiled a lot and everyone worked hard.
What was your favourite moment?
Northern Rogues Captain Sugar and Spite: My favourite moment from the game was probably any time I was sent flying by you (Gem O'cide) or the rest of your team. I try to avoid contact because it's tiring as a jammer, but I love the physical stuff!
York Minxters Captain Gem O'Cide: My favourite moment was probably hitting Sugar and Spite flying I felt my hitting was on form and got lots of lovely feedback. I love her but that damn smile when she had lead jammer! My other favourite moment was also when my wall used a strategy we have really struggled with and it worked!
Who on your team would get the Captains award?
Northern Rogues Captain Sugar and Spite: If I had an award to give to my own team it would be incredibly difficult as they all played so well as a team, but I would have to give it to kitty hitter. She always gives it her all despite the fact that at this point she is literally held together with kt tape and chewing gum!
York Minxters Captain Gem O'Cide: Lady P got the MVP award but she deserves he captains award too. She's fairly new to us but has thrown herself in full throttle. She's always enthusiastic and really is the definition of a team player! We would also like to thank Crafty Hog and Hellfire Hoskins and Big Guns for LUM and Benching us!
We love the Northern Rogues and can't wait to have them back! There is definitely a lot more games to play between our teams!
