On Sunday 8 July the Hellfire Harlots travelled up north to take on Middlesbrough Milk Rollers for a doubler header bout in Peterlee, Co. Durham.
Middlesbrough had a strong start, edging further and further ahead in the first half thanks to power jams. With a half time score of 82 – 57 to MMR, both teams knew the second half was going to be tough.
The Harlots came back from half time firing on all cylinders, with Bunnie Suicide securing a grand slam and bringing the scores level to 82 all. Everything was to play for and MMR put up a fearsome defence but the harlots began slowly clawing back valuable points and holding on to their newly established lead. The last few jams were nerve wracking for supporters of both teams but the final score was HH 188 – MMR 151.
