If you’ve never been to a Blacksnake Rollergirls event at the St. Joseph Civic Arena — or more specifically, if you missed this weekend’s games — then we here at KC Derby Digest certainly pity the fool. Because you missed what will, without a doubt, go down as two of the closest, hardest-fought games of the 2013 season.
The first game of the evening saw the newly-formed Danger Dolls take on the second-year Jesse Janes and win in a fist-pounding nailbiter, 86-84. The second game was even closer than that, literally coming down to the very last jam, a zero-sum event that saw the 2012 champion Venomous Vixens cling to a 113-112 win over the Rushin’ Rollettes that left everyone in the Civic Arena holding their breath on the edge of their seats. There really is no sufficient hyperbole here — the Blacksnake Rollergirls killed it this weekend.
And we have the pictures.
The next event in St. Joseph is on April 13th, and we will, as always, be bringing you reminders as the date draws near, as we do with all the leagues. Congratulations to everyone in the Blacksnake Rollergirls organization for giving the fans exactly what they showed up to see Saturday night. We can’t wait to see you again!
