Roller derby fans were out Sunday night as Rossland and Salmo battled for who would be crowned champion of the West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League.

Last year, Rossland’s Gnarlie’s Angels pulled together for the final moments to bring about victory against Salmo’s Babes of Brutality. The year before Salmo took the trophy.

But alas, this year the Rossland has been well above the grade in the derby world and showed it in Mountain Mayhem III.

The match was close all the way up to the half, after that the Angels piled on the points to win the coveted Golden Boot with a score of 198-70.

Up to the half the match was anyone’s guess as it ended 60-49.

The season officially ends on Oct. 10 when the Kootenay Kannibelles play the Raggdy Rollers in Armstrong.
