Photo Friday: Queens of Pain vs Brooklyn Bombshells

Posted on September 23, 2011 by


Earlier this month I watched a nailbiter of a game between the Queens of Pain and the Brooklyn Bombshells in New York.

Gotham Girls Derby Stadium

The game went into overtime after a tied finish. Brooklyn Bombshells secured the win in the final jam.

The game was played quite differently to how it is in Australia. The most noticable difference was the start of each jam, when the teams lined up right up against the jamming line.

It was great watching Queens of Pains player Suzy Hotrod – she will be playing for team USA at the derby world cup later this year.
