Saturdays game at Ponds Forge was an amazing opportunity for Windsors ‘B’ team and a ‘bit’ of snow was not going to stop the B-Headers from taking on the Sheffield Steel Rollergirls.
Sheffield were first to put scores on the board with a 4:0 jam, but an early power jam saw Windsor take the lead, 40:20. A few lead changes followed with a strong power jam from Windsor’s Shore taking the score to 61:38 to Windsor, but a power jam to Sheffield saw the teams draw level at 66-66. At half time the scores were Sheffield 107, B-Headers 69.
Sheffield were able to hold onto their lead and a series of power jams coupled with strong offence and tactical calling in the second period enabled the experienced Sheffield side to extend their lead still further, final score: Sheffield 248, B-Headers 125.
This game sees the B-Headers leap 32 places in the rankings, from 122 to 90 (Derby Data Europe).
You can see the B-Headers in Windsor on April 13th, when they take on Bristols B team. Tickets on sale soon.
