Smashies & M-80s Tangle This Saturday!

A pair of hard-charging squads strides to the flat-track Saturday, February 3, as Arch Rival Roller Derby continues their six-event local regular season at Queeny Park’s Midwest Sport Hockey (570 Weidman Rd., Ballwin, MO).

In the match-up that begins at 6:30 pm, the Smashinistas (1-0) tussle with the M-80s (0-1).

The undefeated Smashies, the current reigning ARCH champs, claimed a 177-168 win over the Stunt Devils at the League’s season opener in December. In the contest, newly acquired jammer Vicious Van GoGo collected 83 points that paced scoring while Bolt Action and Flash also notched multi-lap passes in the ledger.

Smashies’ blocking was paced by Cloak N’ Drag-Her, Smarty McFly, Rock Slobster, Spock N’ Roll, Professor Rumbledore, Birdsong, Lola Blow, Hero-Shima, Holliver Fist, Wicked Witch of the Midwest, Girl Fawkes and Outlaw Josie Wheels. Newcomer Poison Ivy is also expected to help her sistren.

The troopers have won six games straight and need to fire at full levels considering the potential buzz saw that they have to face Saturday.

The M-80s dropped their season opener last month against the Stunt Devils, 222-157, but there was plenty of optimism to be found as the red-flannels performed the contest without key players in the line-up.

M-80s’ newcomer Bad Axe scored 53 points in the game. After an opening night absence, top-flight jammer Shoulder, CO returns to the fold Saturday for an upswing in offense while Bloody Gaga and BEECH, PLEASE! are also projected to contribute to the scoring ledger.

Blockers Lumberjam, Ginger, Snoop Dogwood, Jenny Loggins, Fight Shrub, Sumack Down, Chop It Like It’s Hot, Sequoia Destro-Ya and Maul Bunyan will set up the walls and recent addition Big Red aims for an initial splash.

If the M-80s claim victory Saturday, the League standings will display a three-way tie at season’s midpoint as all three squads will have identical 1-1 records.

The evening also features GateKeepers Roller Derby action as the Central West Friends (1-0) face the Creve Coroners (1-0) in a battle of unbeatens.

We’ll see you Saturday night at Midwest Sport Hockey!
