Stephanie Woodwark, AKA Francis Break’em, is one of the players on the team. She says the game was the team’s strongest effort yet, and gave Prince George all they could handle.
“It was a really good game for us. Even though we lost, it was our best game ever,” she says. “Normally Prince George win by 100 to 150 points, and when we came to the end of the game we were tied at 181, so that was a huge accomplishment there.”
The game ended up going into double overtime to settle things. One overtime period by itself is uncommon in the sport.
“We went into an overtime, which is extremely rare in roller derby, then we tied again at 186 and went into a second overtime which apparently nobody had ever seen. We didn’t feel like we lost at the end; we felt pretty good at it. They are the best team that we ever play.”
