You were there, of course, to see that the Heathers have only deepened and broadened their skills as individuals and as a team since they took the 2008 RCR crown.
In the first half-bout of last night's mini-tournament, the Guns N Rollers conked the Break Neck Betties 47 - 35.
Next up, we saw the Heathers defeat the ever-stronger High Rollers 78 - 42. Whew!
In the consolation bout for third seeding, the High Rollers went on to put down the Betties 58 - 35.
Which led us to the final of the seeding tournament, where the Heathers blew out the Guns and Rollers 69 - 30.
Going into the evening, some had expected things to be a little less lopsided. There is a load of talent on each team and, based on distribution of strong skaters alone, one would expect a very competitive 2009 season. But things haven't quite started out that way.
Why not? HH's Superior team cohesion (the Heathers are a well-functioning unit) is one guess, and the depth of the Heathers bench is another. It was a sight to see.
