Roller Derby: Derby delivers double trouble

West Kootenay Roller Derby presents another evening of excruciating excitement with a doubleheader on Saturday at the Nelson Civic Centre.

West Kootenay Roller Derby (WKRD) presents another evening of excruciating excitement with a doubleheader on Saturday at the Nelson Civic Centre with the Nelson Killjoys taking on Salmo’s Babes of Brutality and the Valley Vendettas going toe-to-toe against the Dam City Rollers.

The last match up between the Babes and The Killjoys was an all out grudge match. The score flipped and flopped back and forth faster then a live fish in frying pan and when the final whistle blew, the scoreboard showed victory for the jubilant Babes. However, a double-check with the official score keeper revealed a discrepancy between the score on the board and the official scoresheet, giving the ecstatic Killjoys the win by two points.

The Valley Vendettas vs Dam City Rollers match is going to determine league standings.

With two losses, the Dams need to win this bout in order to make the playoffs. The Valley Vendettas had a strong showing against the Babes of Brutality in Game 2 of the season coming away with their first win ever.

The first bout between the Killjoys and Babes of Brutality hits the oval at 5 p.m., while the Vendettas grapple with the Rollers at 7 p.m.

On June 29, at the Cominco Arena, the Rossland-Trail Roller Girls meet the Mountain Town Maulers out of Cranbrook.
