Roller Derby – Angels, Babes vie for golden boot

This Sunday the Rossland's undefeated Gnarlies Angels will take on their arch rivals - Salmo's Babes of Brutality at the Rossland arena.

On Sunday the raucous rematch of the undefeated Rossland Gnarlies Angels will take on their arch-rivals the Salmo Babes of Brutality at the Rossland Arena in the third annual Mountain Mayhem West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League final.

The Babes won the first Golden Boot, the symbol of WKWRDL dominance, by beating the Angels, but the Angels got revenge last year snatching victory from defeat in a heated and controversial final jam.

The Angels coach Cousin Vegas forced the jam when he called timeout in the final minute of the match.

An untimely penalty to the Babes premier jammer Bobbi Barbarich opened the door for the Angels as they swooped down and scored 19 points to the Babes three, to come back and win the game 181-174.

This year’s rubber match should be a hotly contested and highly entertaining bout between the league’s strongest teams.

The doors open at 4 p.m. at the Rossland arena, with first whistle at 5 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
