Rossland host to all-star derby showdown

Rossland arena hosted the Kootenay Kanibelles as they took on the Okanagan-Shuswap Raggedy Rollers.

On Saturday

The West Kootenays showed their full derby force Saturday night as the Kootenay Kanibelles took on the Okanagan-Shuswap Raggedy Rollers.

Rossland arena hosted the respective travel teams, which are made up of each region’s top players.

While the bout started out close, it soon began to tilt heavily in the Kanibelles favour, with a lead of 116 to 9 going into the half. The all-star Kanibelles kept the pressure on, more than doubling the score in the second half.

The bout ended with the Kanibelles leading 252 – 25.

Kannibelles members have to try-out for the team every four months even if they’ve already made the team.

This was the first of the season’s three Kannibelles home games. West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby semi-final and championship boutswill be held on weekends and feature the full entertainment package, including half-time show, bar, concessions, raffles, door prizes and music.

The derby matches are suitable for the whole family. New for this year are toned down, mid-week bouts for only $5.

Next up in the schedule is a doubleheader this Saturday with Nelson’s Killjoys taking on Rossland’s Gnarlie’s Angels, followed by Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers versus Trail’s Bad News Betties.
