Queen City Roller Girls championship bout is Saturdayby jmaloni
Come to the Rainbow Rink on Saturday, June 1, to see the Nickel City Knockouts and Devil Dollies battle for the Queen City Cup in the final home team bout of the season. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the bout begins at 7:30 p.m.
Will the Nickel City Knockouts, yet to be defeated this season or last, keep their winning spree intact? Or will the Devil Dollies, who came oh-so-close to breaking it the last time these teams met, beat them and take back the Queen City Cup?
This will be the third year the two teams are going head-to-head in QCRG's championship bout. In 2011, the Dollies pulled out the win. In 2012 the Knockouts took the Cup with a commanding victory. Now it's the fans' turn to see who will break the tie.
This is the final home team game of the 2013 season and is sure to be an exciting matchup. Both teams have depth on their bench, filled with talented jammers and formidable blockers. Both teams are strategic and hard-hitting.
The day starts out at the Carnegie Art Center with the annual QCRG Day picnic. The event will be filled with jugglers, bag pipers, hula-hoopers, zombies and fire throwers. Plus, the shortest parade in Western New York will bring the Queen City Cup to the Rainbow Rink, where it will wait to be claimed by this year's champions.
The Queen City Junior Roller Girls and the Cleveland Rockstars will duke it out in a junior derby bout at 6 p.m. to warm the track up for the Dollies and Knockouts.
Halftime and between bout entertainment will be provided by Lower Town Trio.
Tickets are $15 general admission, $20 front row. Front row tickets are available at www.qcrg.net. General admission can be purchased online and the Rainbow Rink.
