Buffalo's Queen City Roller Girls double-header includes second home bout of Lake Effect Furiesby jmaloni
The Lake Effect Furies, travel team of the Queen City Roller Girls, look to make a statement at home against last year's Women's Flat Track Derby Association Division 2 Tournament hosts. Meanwhile, the Suicidal Saucies and Nickel City Knockouts battle for the top of the Queen City Roller Girls standings.
On Saturday, March 15, the Queen City Roller Girls will continue the 2014 season as the Lake Effect Furies play their second home bout of the season against the Killamazoo Derby Darlins of Kalamazoo, Mich. These two teams last met during the first game of the 2013 Division 2 playoffs, where Killamazoo came away with a close win.
The four-time champion Suicidal Saucies are coming on strong after their win against the Alley Kats earlier in the season. However, the Nickel City Knockouts are looking to continue their recent domination within the league and hoist the Queen's Cup trophy again at the end of the season.
Proceeds from the bout will go to benefit the National MS Society, Upstate New York Chapter. The National MS Society helps those affected by MS in upstate New York address the challenges of living with MS.
