New England Derby Weekend Preview


BOSTON DERBY DAMESOLY ROLLERS – Dames fans have been holding their breath for the highly anticipated bout between the Massacre and last season’s WFTDA National champs, the Oly Rollers’ Cosa Nostra Donnas, this Saturday.
The pantsless militia is coming off their first loss of the season to the Philly Roller Girls on April 17, but have had nearly a month to recharge for a match-up against the undefeated ladies from Washington. Boston’s roster is looking sharp, with some new faces that have been consistently delivering hard hits and strong blocking straight out of the gate. Can BDD take Oly’s travel team down a peg? Or will Washington move another win closer to Gotham’s record of 18 straight wins?
Prior to the Massacre’s turn on the track, the Wicked Pissahs will be looking to continue their winning streak as they challenge the Cosmonaughties for the second time. Cosmo newcomer and MVP Lady Shatterly will likely be a formidable opponent for the Pissahs as her lightning-fast speed helped bring her team their first win of the season last month against the Nuts.

2 weeks of bouts … crammed into 1 post

Way, way, waaaay behind. Apologies for the lack of updates, I was sidelined in the ER, went to a funeral, began set-up for a local artist exhibition next month, landed an assistant director gig for a summer shoot and got a dirt bike. I also fell in love. With my dirt bike. For reals.

I’m not the only one with a ton going on, derby teams throughout New England have been bouting, scrimmaging, promoting and selling out like crazy!
