Roller Derby: WRD for PCMC



 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 Medical Center on Saturday, May 16. At half time, the score was 41 to 40 in favor of the I.V. Leaguers. The I.V. Leaguers held the lead the entire bout and eventually won by 15 gaining most of their points during the last 10 minutes of the bout (final score 75 to 90).

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.

Wasatch Roller Derby continues to grow and improve in skill with each bout. So far this season, over $1,000 has been given to charity after only 2 events. For our next event, we're finally bringing roller derby to Park City! Our next bout will be held June 20th at Trailside Park during the afternoon. Derby, BBQ and beer all while benefiting Friends of Animals! What could be better? The following weekend WRD goes on the road for their first inter-league bout against Slaughterhouse Roller Derby in Greeley, CO. Information:
