Justine Sane

In the aftermath of the Black Eye Affair between the Chrome Mollys and Belles of the Brawl, once again we hear from Justine Sane. All fierce and fun at the same time, she was part of the pack that led the Belles from Brantford’s Belle City. Once again she was back at the Ted Reeve Arena where she had once been with the GTA Rollergirls.

Belles of the Brawl

Justine Sane starts off then we will hear from one of the other Belles Lass Compactorof the night.

“Our league was so super excited to play the first game,” says Justine Sane. “For me playing at Ted Reeve was bittersweet, it was great to have my first game with the Belles of the Brawl in familiar territory, but it was also weird to be a visitor against GTAR. They are such great hosts though that we all felt pretty good to be there.”

The 177-44 score for the Chrome Mollys’s second victory of the season did not take away from the fun and excitement of the night.

“It was great to have the fans there, I was remembered by fans when I went to watch the Royal Rumble last week, and this past Saturday I did get quite a few cheers— especially when I got lead jam! That is so derby, to be loved even after you leave! The Belles of the Brawl have the first game behind us, we will learn as a team from this experience. There were some rookie mistakes that will go away quick. The Belles of the Brawl, we hit them, they fall!”

Belles Captain for the night Lass Compactor shares the nerves and excitement of being on the track for the first time.

“May 28th is the day I will never forget!! I have heard stuff about playing the games, but it never hit me until I was in the building and watching my team get ready for it. I’ve never been so nervous, all I could think about was getting my first hit!! Who will it be ?? How hard should I do it? Am I going to go down with her? These were all the questions that ran through my head.The intro was done, names were called, my heart starts to race as I am in the first line up!! I scan to the left, then to the right. Who will it be to take my first hit?? It seemed like forever for the whistle to blow. The girl on my left was my first victim. It wasn’t too bad. So I go for a few more hits and the jam was over. It wasn’t scary at all, just a rush!! By the end of the first half I was getting tired. …” [but undoubtedly the rest of the evening was one long evening of Derby high which we will hear more from later.]
