A big-time match-up for Arch Rival Roller Derby takes place this Saturday at Midwest Sport Hockey (510 Weidman, Ballwin, MO) where the winner becomes the solo leader of the local league standings at the mid-season checkpoint.
The Smashies powered a 47-6 rally en route to a 178-140 victory over the M-80s three weekends ago and snared a first place tie with the Stunts in the ARCH hierarchy.
In the contest, Smashies’ addition Bolt Action collected 78 points in her ARCH local debut while veteran Harmony Killerbruise added 50. Flash is also expected to get numerous rotations at jammer this Saturday.
The blocking battalion, featuring Shimmy Hoffa, Cloak N’ Drag-Her, Salty, Holliver Fist, Party McFly, Smarty McFly, Shay Guevara, Rumbledore, Rock Slobster and Birdsong, are ready to help the squadron claim its second straight duke.
Meanwhile the Stunts Devils, the two-time defending local champ, displays a lethal jamming duo of veterans Bricktator and Psychokid D’ Freakout, who collectively amassed 143 points at the team’s November season opener while additional scoring was supplied by Violet Opposition, Aggie Wartooth and Beaver Knievel.
Blockers Cruella Belle-ville, Fletch-A-Sketch, Shear-Ra Powers, Nox, Goldie Blocks, Bruise Almighty, Scars and Stripes, Wonder Thighs and Pegasass are primed to lay down the foundation.
By the end of the flat-track duel, one team will gain supremacy midway through the league’s six-event local regular season!
The double-header event also features a GateKeepers Roller Derby “Turf Wars” battle between the Central West Friends (1-0) and defending GKRD league kingpins Raiders of Forest Park (0-1).
Tickets at the door are $10 while children 10 and under get in free.
