  • Your Capital Defenders opened their season with a loss on the road against Bossier City’s Twin City Knockers, then returned home to Baton Rouge on March 23rd to team with the B-Team of the Mississippi Rollergirls to take on Emerald Coast Roller Derby, which resulted in a loss.  The East Texas Bombers opened their season with a loss at home to Girls Rolling in the South on March 23, but rebounded with a very close victory over the Twin City Knockers on April 27.
  • This will be the third meeting of the two teams. The two previous match-ups both occurred in 2011, which resulted in a split series: Your Capital Defenders defeated the East Texas Bombers on June 18 168-64 in Baton Rouge, but lost in Jacksonville, TX in a very close 143-151 bout.
  • The two teams will meet again on July 20th in Jacksonville, TX.
  • The East Texas Bombers were original WFTDA members, but exited the organization in 2009, only the second league to do so at that time.  After a brief disbanding, the league reformed and began seeking WFTDA Apprenticeship membership in 2012.

*Record includes mashup bout with Mississippi Rollergirls B-Team
