This Saturday night, the Ladies Division of Fountain City Roller Derby will hold its annual championship bout, and as it always is, it’s going to be one for the books.
Going into championships this year, it seems we have a very neat, orderly win-loss breakdown:
Royal Pains 3-0
Shotgun Sheilas 2-1
Deadly Sirens 1-2
Lovely Lethals 0-3
Things in this league aren’t usually so tidy. The undefeated Royal Pains will be vying for another FCRD championship trophy, and they’ll be taking on the Shotgun Sheilas — also making their umpteenth championship appearance — whose only loss this season came at the hands of the Pains back in January. And any suggestion that the undefeated team is automatically the clear-cut favorite doesn’t take into account things like… you know, the Shotgun Sheilas.
And while it’s true the Pains scored a solid 68-42 win over the Sheilas in their only contest this season, it’s unlikely this weekend’s championship game is going to be as cut and dried as this year’s win-loss totals.
In other league news, the Lovely Lethals have struggled through 2017 with an 0-3 record, but it’s certainly not due to a lack of fire (see what I did there?). And the Deadly Sirens‘ 1-2 record in no way reflects the strides this incredible squad has made since last season. These two impressive, talented teams will face off in Saturday night’s annual grudge match right before the championship game, so get there early and don’t miss a moment of this weekend’s action.
Don’t kid yourself — Fountain City’s season isn’t over after Saturday night. This summer will be full of Zombie and Coed League action at B&D, so stay tuned to KC Derby Digest here on the web site and on social media, and we’ll keep you up to date on all the upcoming flat track action this amazing league brings as the year goes on.
We will see you Saturday night at B&D Skate Center for the Fountain City Roller Derby Ladies Division Championships!
