Saturday 13th April, Windsor’s last public bout before ‘Who Dares Windsor’ head off to Belgium, and this time it was the ‘B-Headers’ entertaining the crowds at Windsor Leisure Centre. Just 3 weeks since the B-Headers played the Sheffield Steel Rollergirls earning themselves a leap in the European rankings from 122 to 92, this game was expected to be close with a prediction of 151:150 in favour of Bristol (Derby Data Europe)

Windsor were first to put a point on the board and what followed was a close first period, with Windsor just holding on to the lead. Strong walls from Little Don, PipLash, Tash of the Titans and Bartlett meant they were able to hold the Bristol jammer in the pack, allowing lead jammer Cle-Blam-O to open up the score to 83:39. Just before the half time whistle a full penalty box for Bristol allowed Cle-Blam-O to extend the lead still further and at half time the scores, 117:57 to Windsor.

The full time score Windsor B-Headers 204, Bristol Bees 131.
