They’re chomping at the bit to start a new campaign!
Arch Rival Roller Derby begins their 13th season of eight-wheeled action this Saturday night at Midwest Sports Hockey at Ballwin, Missouri’s Queeny Park (570 Weidman Rd.)
In the twin-bill of women’s action that launches at 6:30 p.m., defending ARCH League Champions, the Stunt Devils, face longtime rivals the Smashinistas while the M-80s face the returning Rebel Skate Alliance in the nightcap.

For the first time in four years, ARCH returns to a four-team format and each event features a pair of women’s games.
With the return of Rebel Skate Alliance to fold, the League imploded the three other teams and a re-draft occurred so that all teams had comparable complexions.
