Rossland hosts semi-final roller derby action on Friday

Roller derby action at the Rossland arena

The Dam City Rollers derby team will be taking on Salmo’s Babes of Brutality in Rossland on Aug. 19 in semi-final action. The winner moves on to the league final to face the undefeated Gnarlie’s Angels from Rossland.

“We want to encourage people to come up to Rossland and cheer us on. We’re going to play our hearts out,” said Kitty Karnage.

The Rollers are coming off the inaugural season which saw the Castlegar team competing with the best teams in the league from the get go.

“We were really happy with everything that went on through the season. We worked really hard,” said Russian 2KillYa. “We played really and we’re coming into the play-offs in the number three position so we’re pretty happy about that.”

“It’s kind of awesome that as a first year team, we’re playing for second already,” said Karnage.

West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League (KWWRDL), is considered the largest derby league in Canada.

“The response from the community has been really good. It’s been great,” said Karnage.

2KillYa expects a rough game against the Babes. “The Babes have been around for an extra year longer than we have. They have some amazing players. They have a player from Team Canada on their squad,” she said. “We’re looking forward to it.”
