2012 Season Recap!

As Sick Town gets back into the swing of regular practices to prepare for our first bout of the new 2013 Season, we take a moment to recap last season’s exciting bout action.

  • January 29:  Oly Dropkick Donnas vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 198 – 48: Coming back from our winter break is never easy; the Dropkick Donnas took full advantage and did some serious damage to our SMASH Unit.  We left with a few injuries, but also with some great experience, memories, and stories.  We knew we would have to really step up our game for our next bout against them coming up in December!  See how that turned out below.
  • March 10: Sick Pistols vs. Country Club Crushers, 135 – 113:  For our first home bout of the season, we pitted Sick Town against Sick Town, dividing our bout pool of skaters into two teams.  A close game to the end, this bout was a great opportunity for non-chartered skaters to play.
  • April 28: LCRD Smokin’ Ashes vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 225 – 59: As always, Lava City brought their A-game, and gave us a good time both on and off the track.  We love LCRD because they always have new things to teach us, and always make us work!
  • May 19: Rainy City All-Stars vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 112 – 118: Our first win of the season, this bout was a close one from start to finish.  We last saw Rainy City at Knocktoberfest in 2011, and we’ve both come a long way since then.
  • June 09: LCRD Smokin’ Ashes vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 129 – 97: Our second bout this season against the Lava City ladies wasn’t technically a win, but our S*M*A*S*H Unit certainly felt vindicated!  We knocked off 160 points from the point differential between these two games.  In just a few short weeks, we totally overhauled our game.
  • September 29: Skatemberfest IV: Southern Oregon Rollergirls vs. S*M*A*S*H UNIT, 64 – 248:  After a few months of summer break, our S*M*A*S*H Unit wanted to start the second half of the season with a strong showing of skills and strategy.  Success!
  • October 27: Lilac City Roller Girls vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 163 – 165:  This bout was a nail-biter until the end!  In a very close match-up, the teams fought back and forth for the lead from start to finish.  The win was anyone’s guess, until our S*M*A*S*H Unit pulled out the win!
  • December 08: Oly Mash-Up Team vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 174 – 175:  We couldn’t have asked for a more exciting season finale than this bout!  Meeting up with some of our stiffest competition from the beginning of the season, we had our work cut out for us.  The S*M*A*S*H Unit was trailing behind a decent chunk of points in the second half, but some amazing jams in the final minutes of the game left the audience with 10 breathless minutes before the final score was announced; there wasn’t a single butt in the seats as the crowd cheered our glorious victory!
