Another local roller-derby bout I didn't make it to last weekend was the Wasatch Roller Derby's benefit bout for Primary Children's Medical Center at Hollywood Connection in West Valley City. WRD's Queen Anne's Revenge reports:
Suture Fancy (blue team) battled the I.V. Leaguers (white
team) in a neck and neck bout benefiting Primary Children's
Suture Fancy tried to break down the Leaguers defense while Queen Anne's Revenge, Kinky Killbasa and Drewish Princess jammed, and very hard hitters Moxie Rotten and Gunnin’ Geisha left their mark. Hydro Pain was out on injury after only a few jams, but her fellow team-mates picked up the slack. Tenacious Dread had the majority of penalties for Suture Fancy and was almost ejected during the first half.
The I.V. Leaguers played a smart bout with Honey Delunatic as captain, resulting in increased game play for both Lady Rage (noted "most improved skater" by Queen Anne's Revenge) and Venom Strike as jammers. Dr. Pain, Honey Delunatic and Medusa Damage proved to be impenetrable on the front line.

only 2 events. For our next event, we're finally bringing roller derby to
