After competing in front of a record-setting 1,200 fans at Queeny Park last month, a St. Patrick’s Day donnybrook is slotted for Arch Rival Roller Derby (ARCH) this Saturday at Midwest Sport Hockey (570 Weidman Road, Ballwin, MO).
Much intrigue will be focused on the winless M-80s, who haven’t fielded a complete line-up through two games, and the potential firepower they now possess. For the first time this season, the fire-cracking loggers sport a full roster and in order to be a part of the late-April title picture they must win this weekend’s game.
Jammers Shoulder, CO, Reptar and Twig E. Smalls will pace the jammer rotation while BEECH, PLEASE! compliments. Blocking will be paced by Lumberjam, Snoop Dogwood, Fiona Crabapple, Ginger, Jenny Loggins, Sumack Down, Megabirch, Chop It Like It’s Hot, Maul Bunyan, Sequoia Destro-ya and Fight Shrub.
Meanwhile, the Stunt Devils picked up an impressive 216-191 victory over the ARCH defending champion Smashinistas last month. In the topsy-turvy battle, the dare devils’ duke resulted in a two-way tie in the standings as the teams now sport identical 2-1 records.
In the win, jammer Psychokid D’Freakout notched 122 points while Bricktator added 63. Aggie Wartooth and Ultraviolet also added imperative points in the victory. Blockers Fletch-A-Sketch, Shear-Ra Powers, Lethal Dose, Wonder Thighs, Splatter, Nox, Hardcore Parkour, BiFurious, Pegasass, Bruise Almighty and Joan of Spark are primed to provide the power up-front.
A donnybrook is expected at Midwest Sport Hockey! We’ll see you there!
Also at the event is the continuation of GateKeepers Roller Derby’s Turf Wars local campaign as the Creve Coroners (1-1) meet the Raiders of Forest Park (0-3).
