CRG falls to Lafitte’s Ladies in Overtime Thriller!

In a bout that took an extra jam to decide, Lafitte’s Ladies from Gulf Coast Rollergirls took the win over your Cajun Rollergirls, 184-178, in the Warren J. Harang Jr. Municipal Auditorium tonight.

This was an amazing game that saw hard-hitting action, exciting lead changes and a HUGE comeback by your Cajun Rollergirls in the last jam of regulation that sent the bout into our first ever overtime affair! While we may not have come away with the W, you can be sure we gave it our all for you! Be sure to check our Facebook page for photos from this game by our own Matt Flash, which will be up soon!

Congratulations to Lafitte’s Ladies on the victory and for giving us a tremendous battle in the first meeting between the two teams since 2012!

Thanks also to all our CRG Nation faithful who attended this nail-biter game in person and those followed the action  online through our Twitter account! For those who weren’t there, you missed a true classic that exemplifies what roller derby is all about!

We travel to Jackson, Miss., for our next bout, as we face the Magnolia Roller Vixens on Saturday, Aug. 16. More info on that game will be available soon.

Also, be sure not to miss our 2014 home finale on Saturday, Aug. 23, as we host the Acadiana Rollergirls. This will be the last time to see your Cajun Rollergirls in action at home this season, so don’t miss what promises to be another exciting game between these two leagues!
