Greetings Redline Derby Fans...and welcome to the Blind Trial Season of the .
Lots of excitement surrounding the first ever matches between these teams--excitement that masked some rather sloppy play in some of what we saw today. Can't fight those opening tournament jitters, that's for sure.
Let's go to the RTL highlights for Tournament One.
MATCH ONE: RAMBLERS at COUGARS
Any time you've got the individual league champion on your team, you've got to be considered the favorite in team competition, so, the Nash Ramblers came into this game with a lot of expectations on them. How would the Cougars and their slow & steady offense do against them?
Not so well. Redline Derby put the Ramblers up to an early lead, bolstered by iowastockcars...while their defense bent but never broke. The Cougars, in front of the hometown Mercury fans, simply couldn't catch up...and the Ramblers take the first ever win in history.
