Local roller derby teams gear up for double header

Roller Derby


The Central New York Roller Derby will be hosting its final 2014 men’s/women’s double header at the JFK Arena in Rome. The doors will open at 4:30 p.m. with the men’s game starting at 5:30 p.m.

qfThe Quadfathers (2-2) will face off with the Ottawa Slaughter Squad (0-1). The Quadfathers have not lost in two meetings between these teams and hope to continue the winning streak. Expect another hard hitting men’s game. Ottawa also features skaters from Team Canada who competed in the men’s World Cup earlier this year in England.

Following the men, the CNYRD women will be split into teams of Vampires vs. Zombies. This is going to be a great way to end the series of mash-up bouts. In honor of vampires and zombies, please consider making a blood donation this summer. Contact the American Red Cross of the Mohawk Valley at 315-733-4666 for more information.

Bring a chair to sit trackside and be up close and personal with your favorite players.
