Lighting and water are sizzling together again, a re-do of the March match where the Demons conquered by a slim 175-171, pulling out an excellent power jam after an hour of trading lead back and forth. This is sure to be a close rematch, although the teams look a little bit different after the induction of new players this June. Keep an eye out for new Demons’ hellspawn: transfer BeastMode and rookies Thrash Ketchum and Cats Meow-side. And don’t forget the Shock’s dazzling new transfers: Gucci Maim and Cupcake Bat-Her. Start the night with a nail biter, and come find out whether or not demons are vulnerable to infection.
Bout Preview- July 15, 2017
Happy 13th Season, Atlanta Rollergirls!
That’s right, this league is celebrating 13 years of bumping butts and grinding guts, and we’re doing it at our July 15th Homecoming double header. And in the spirit of growing bigger and better, these teams have all added rookies and transfers to the ranks, so each team is a little something more than you might remember. Come watch all four home teams up the ante at another action-packed Playoffs, putting us one step closer to-or farther away from- home team domination.
Bout 1: Denim Demons v. Toxic Shocks
Bout 2: Apocalypstix v. Sake Tuyas
In March, the Stix skewered the Sakes 198-123, and they show no signs of slowing down. Of course, the Sakes have got serious skills- and spite- to offer back at the Stix. And don’t forget, this game will be the debut for new skaters on both teams. The Sakes are offering a tokkuri to transfer R2Death2 and rookies BB Hate and Peaches Christ. While the thunder dome has also added a few fighters: transfer Mad Villain and rookies Nips of Fury and Speedy Petey. Will the Stix- 2016 home team champions- add another victory to the pile? Or are the Sakes brewing up a fresh batch of fury? Come and watch the drama play out!
On July 15, our home teams have one last chance to improve their standing for August’s 2017 home team championships, which means time is ripe for you to make your way down to Yaarab Shrine in Midtown for a night of hard-hitting roller derby action. Doors open at 4PM: first game is at 5PM, second is at 7:30PM. Bring: beer (or whatever, just no glass), money (for some scrumptious food truck grub and super cool vendor merch), and be ready to groove to the halftime band. Tickets are available online or at the door.
