The final game of the regular season for Arch Rival Roller Derby (ARCH) takes place at Midwest Sport Hockey (570 Weidman Road, Ballwin, MO) this Saturday night.
What’s intriguing about this match-up is that it will be a precursor to the league’s trophy game that will be held between the pair on April 22.
The Smashies aim to finish the regular season undefeated as the squad certainly flexed their proverbial muscles in a 233-113 dismantling of the M-80s last month. In the contest, five jammers scored over 30 points apiece, paced by Harmony Killerbruise’s 56 followed by Salty’s 50. Bolt Action and Flash also provided multi-lap passes while both Smarty McFly and Cloak N’ Drag-Her, blockers by trade, added points to the tally.
Meanwhile the Stunt Devils return to the Midwest Sport Hockey flat-track after a month off. Jammers Bricktator, Beaver Knievel, Psychokid D’Freakout, Aggie Wartooth and Violet Opposition are ready to claim points while blockers by Shear-Ra Powers, Nox, Bruise Almighty, Fletch A Sketch, Hakuna Renata, Goldie Blocks, Pegasass, Joan of Spark, Ophelia Bottoms, Wonder Thighs, Cruella Belle-ville and Hardcore Parkour are ready to set up walls.
When these two squads faced each other in January, the Smashies recorded a 249-222 victory. Another high-scoring affair is anticipated this Saturday.
The evening’s twin bill also features GateKeepers Roller Derby action as defending Turf Wars champions, the Raiders of Forest Park (2-1), clashes with the Central West Friends (2-1).
