The Concrete Cows, suffered their second defeat of their British Championships campaign against Cambridge RollerBillies, losing 191-76 on Saturday.

The Cows lineup was affected by injury, providing debuts for Chas Scott and Jill Creighton, but they quickly fell behind to a strong and power Cambridge team.

Cambridge opened up at 40 point lead, and their solid walls of skaters, prevented a Cows comeback.

Some big hits were thrown by Cows blockers Katie Thomas and Victoria Griffith, as the Cows matched Cambridge hit for hit, but Cambridge went in at half time leading 86-20.

The Cows had a far better second half as jammers Harri Clarke and Rowene Fellows picked up points, with some athletic apex jumps wowing the crowd.

Cambridge remained strong however, and held out for a 191-76 point victory.

The Cows are currently in fifth position in the Women’s Tier 3 East division of the Champs.

MK Roller Derby’s next game is at Bletchley Leisure Centre on Sunday April 26 when their joint women and men’s team, the Co-EdBreakers, and the women’s B Team , The Udder Team, will be taking on teams from Portsmouth Roller Wenches.
