Second helpings

West Kootenay Roller Derby league’s second bout of the season will open with a much-anticipated match up.

The Red Army is aiming for a win this Saturday as they battle their sisters from Castlegar.

West Kootenay Roller Derby league’s second bout of the season will open with a much-anticipated match up, the Rossland Trail Roller Girls (RTRG) versus Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers.

RTRG will have to put on their game faces as they take on the Dams, a hard hitting team that they have spent much time training with.

The second game of the night will see Salmo’s Babes of Brutality challenging the Valley Vendettas. Though the Babes come with much experience on the track, the Vendettas have been training hard since last season and are determined to take the win.

Saturday’s event is held at Castlegar’s Selkirk College gym, where limited tickets are available. Doors open at 4 p.m. with the first whistle blown at 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the door.

Come check out West Kootenay women at their finest.
