A title is ready to be claimed this Saturday night!
Arch Rival Roller Derby (ARCH) presents their local championship game at Queeny Park’s Midwest Sport Hockey (510 Weidman Road, Ballwin, MO) where in the 6:30 p.m. contest, the defending champs, the Smashinistas, tangle with the Stunt Devils.
The Smashies (2-2) have dropped their last two contests, which included a 272-218 setback to the M-80s earlier this month. In the contest, the troopers were low on numbers as four starters were out of the mix and a 69-0 rally surrendered to the red-flannels in the second period resulted in a low-point of the regular season.
Reflecting on the moment, and regaining the quartet missing last month, the Smashies now aim to rebound and recapture the ARCH trophy, which would be their fourth title reign overall. High scoring jammer Bolt Action propels the scoring while Flash and The Jukes on You supplements.
Blocking is paced by Cloak N’ Drag-Her, Vicious Van GoGo, Smarty McFly, Rock Slobster, Professor Rumbledore, Girl Fawkes, Hero-Shima, Spock-N-Roll, Outlaw Josie Wheels, Poison Ivy, Holliver Fist and Rude-Off.
Conversely, a win by the hard-charging Stunt Devils (2-2) would supplant their legacy as ARCH’s most decorated local franchise as they will have snared their fifth League title. They also look to overturn their last Queeny Park effort as they fell to the aforementioned M-80s by two points in March.
The key to a Stunts’ victory will be the blocking schema of Shear-Ra Powers, Fletch-A-Sketch, Lethal Dose, Hardcore Parkour, Wonder Thighs, Joan of Spark, Splatter, Pegassas, Nox and Bruise Almighty.
In the regular season opener held last December, the pair tangled to a single-digit spread at whistle’s end. This one is considered a coin-flip and a similar result is projected.
The evening also features the finale of GateKeepers Roller Derby (GKRD) Turf Wars campaign as the defending champion Central West Friends (3-1) battle the Creve Coroners (3-1).
