We’re baaaaaa-aaaccckkkkk! SVRG Comes Home for our August 20th Double-Header!

by Absolutely Scabulous, #.08 BAC

After two months on the road, your Silicon Valley Roller Girls are back home on August 20th with a double-header derby extravaganza. Your Dot.Kamikazes are matched against Slaughter County Roller Vixens’ Saint’s of Slaughter, with the KillaBytes bouting against our friends from the East Bay, the Undead Bettys.

SVRG burst into the 3rd quarter ranked 12th in the Western Region (see full regional rankings here), giving this home bout some serious weight playing 13th ranked Slaughter County. Record-wise, teams are fairly evenly matched with SVRG (7-4) playing more games than Slaughter County, but Slaughter having an undefeated record (5-0). As always, rankings and records don’t hold the full story; Slaughter County boasts two Olympic skaters, Alyssa Davis and Ceilidh Sligh, respectively known as Toucan Slam and On Da Sligh. SVRG got a sneak peak earlier this year, watching On Da Sligh at the Wild West Showdown. The Dots are fired up with a fresh roster of all your favorite skaters ready to take on the Saints!

The Killas are gearing up to take a byte out of the Undead Bettys. Word on the rink is that the Bettys have stepped up their game play, and become some seriously fierce competition. SVRG loves playing the Bettys—their sportswomanship, strategy, and overall clean gameplay makes them solid competitors.

Tickets for this double header are selling out quickly, so buy yours today at Brown Paper Tickets. Pricing for this event is $15 for general admission and $8 for the kidlets. You can’t beat those prices with a stick (or a solid shoulder block)!

It was an incredible tournament season for SVRG’s Dot.Kamikazes as they began the journey to becoming a nationally-ranked WFTDA team!

At the Wild West Showdown in Bremerton, Washington, the Dots made a very big showing in their first tournament as a member of WFTDA by winning all 3 of their bouts with a seriously impressive point spread.

First up, they rolled out against Tacoma’s Dockyard Derby Dames, also new to the WFTDA and currently unranked. In the end, the Dots were making waves that the Dockyard Dames just couldn’t handle, and won 216-58.

After a full day of rest, the Dots were up against #21 in the region, the Sin City Roller Girls. In the end Sin City was thwarted 198-64. Two hours later they were back in action against Lava City’s Smokin’ Ashes from Bend, OR; currently ranked 19 in the west. The Smokin’ Ashes were stomped out with a final score of 226-59.

Earlier this month at the Dust Devil in Tuscon, Arizona, the Dots also won the first 2 of the 4 games they played, against some seriously high-end WFTDA-ranked derby competition!

On day one, they squashed Assassination City, ranked #16 in the South Central region,  258-40. The Dots then went on to trump Pikes Peak, ranked #10 in the west, 168-72. The following day proved much more challenging, as the level of competition sky-rocketed. The Dots gave Tucson (#9 in the west) a run for their money with a final score of 109-91, Tucson; followed by another close match against Angel City (#12 in the west), with ACDG coming ahead 143-118.

These events counted towards SVRG’s WFTDA national rankings, which dictate whether SVRG will be in the Western Regional Competition this fall! Ranking updates will be out soon, so stay tuned! Ctrl+Alt+Del!
