Fountain City Roller Derby kicked off its 2019 season in a little bit different fashion Saturday night, this time starting the year off with their rebranded all-gender league taking the lead, instead of mixing up their schedule with the women’s division, which won’t begin until June.
Perhaps most importantly, Saturday night’s event marked the beginning of Fountain City’s 10th season on the flat track! Can you believe it?
Happy 10th birthday, Fountain City!
Much more on this incredible milestone in the months to come. We’ve been around for most of the league’s existence, and the memories are pretty incredible.
And if that wasn’t enough, Saturday night also marked the flat track debut of the newest all-gender team, The Regulators, which was comprised, of course, of a hodgepodge of new and old faces you have (and haven’t) seen on the track at B&D before.
The first game of the night featured a rematch of last season’s championship bout. The 2018 coed champions, the Usual Suspects, notched a 67-58 win over the formidable Untouchables, leaving us to wonder just where the trophy will land this season, given how competitive the whole endeavor was.
That game was followed by the 2019 debut of the Public Enemies, who brought home a big win over the brand new Regulators by a final score of 109-42.
Usual Suspects: 1-0
Public Enemies: 1-0
The Regulators: 0-1
We’ll have bout photos published as soon as we’re able. Stay tuned, of course, for more Fountain City action — the 2019 season has just begun!
