Queen City Roller Girls host 'Bewitched' roller derby boutby jmaloni
Save the date for the most anticipated Queen City Roller Girls bout this season, "Bewitched," on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 7:30 p.m., at the Rainbow Rink in North Tonawanda.
The last time the Nickel City Knockouts and Devil Dollies dueled, they were the top two contenders in the 2012 QCRG Championship.
While the Dollies put up a respectable battle, the KOs clinched a final victory. Come see if the KOs can continue their winning streak or the Dollies can knock them off it.
"We always enjoy playing the Devil Dollies," said Lamb Chop, captain of the Nickel City Knockouts. "We have been training hard and are ready for any and all challenges."
The Knockouts won their first game against the Suicidal Saucies, and the Dollies won their first game against the Alley Kats. Now both teams intend to extend their winning streak.
"It's always a challenge to play the Nickel City Knockouts," said Her Heiny Granger, captain of the Devil Dollies. "But we have been working very hard and feel that we are up to it."
A portion of the proceeds will go to the G.I.R.L.S. Sports Foundation, a non-profit group that offers sports amenities such as basketball clinics, lessons, educational fairs and workshops to underserved girls in the City of Buffalo.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the bout beginning at 7:30 p.m. Queen City Junior Roller Derby's Ice Ice Babies will also duke it out prior to the senior bout. Live music to be provided during halftime by 1916.
General admission tickets start at $15 and are available at www.qcrg.net or at Rainbow Rink and Terrapin Station.
