On July 11, 2015, the Blue Ridge Rollergirls All Stars (#64) will host a boys versus girls schoolyard brawl against the Carolina Wreckingballs (Columbia, SC) men’s flat-track derby team. The Blue Ridge Rollergirls French Broads will confront the Rogue Rollergirls (Fayetteville, NC) earlier in the evening. Both games will be live at the U.S. Cellular Center in downtown Asheville, North Carolina.
The French Broads bout at 5 p.m., and the All Stars skate at 7 p.m. These third home games of a promising season are sure to entertain and inspire loyal and new fans of the growing sport of roller derby. Be prepared to witness lines drawn in the sand as veteran and new skaters alike prove to the opposing Carolina teams that Blue Ridge has come to fight for a big win.
Beth Owenby, or Shadow of Beth, the co-captain of the French Broads and All Star skater, jokes that she may “throw rocks at the boys,” since it is a schoolyard brawl. Becoming more serious, she notes that she is “excited to be playing the guys. They are a talented group of players and it will be a challenging game for Blue Ridge.”
The Blue Ridge Rollergirls will be honoring the Buncombe County Rescue Squad as their chosen charity for this bout.
Ticket prices are $13. Children 10-years-old and younger will receive free admission. We look forward to seeing you there!
