Roller Derby: Mountain Mayhem set to roll in Rossland

The West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby delivers its final bout of the season Sunday at the Rossland Arena.

The West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby delivers its final bout of the season as Mountain Mayhem IV rolls out on the track Sunday at the Rossland Arena.

This year’s finale will showcase the league-leading Nelson Killjoys versus Salmo’s Babes of Brutality.

The Killjoys dominated the Babes, beating them 282-97 in a June tilt, but the Babes bounced back with a 198-167 win over the Rossland-Trail Roller Girls that put them in second spot, and secured them yet another shot at the Golden Boot.

Last season the Babes lost to the Angels in the championship bout, and they will look for a different outcome against the Killjoys this year.

In the third-place match up, the RosslandTrail Roller Girls take on the Dam City Rollers from Castlegar. The Roller Girls beat the Rollers 204-167 way back in May, but Dam City has improved steadily all season, giving the Killjoys all they could handle in their last battle, a close 222-176 victory for the Nelson team Aug. 9.

The Rossland-Trail Roller Girls will face off against the Dam City Rollers at 3 p.m. Sunday, followed by the Killjoys and Babes of Brutality at 5 p.m. Doors open at 2 p.m. at the Rossland Arena.
