Missouri River Rollers Game 1 Round-Up and Photos

Saturday night, at a place called Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall in Atchison, Kansas, the Missouri River Rollers held their very first bout ever and kicked off a new era of roller derby for the Kansas City area.

As with any upstart league, anxieties were understandably high going into their first-ever event regarding everything you can think of — things like attendance, audience reception, etc. — but from the perspective of what I’ll call a professional roller derby fan, I think it’s safe to say Saturday night exceeded expectations by just about any metric available. Turnout for the game was excellent, and the River Rollers notched a solid win over the Benton County Derby Dames by a final score of 59-28.

As always, we’ve got photos.

Congratulations to all the ladies and gents of the Missouri River Rollers for a very strong start to what is hopefully a long and illustrious run of fantastic flat track roller derby in Atchison!
