Yankees vs Mets. White Sox vs Cubs. Some of the greatest rivalries in sports come from when you’re battling against your next door neighbor. This weekend, Rat City Rollergirls’ All-Star Team (AST) will be going up against their sisters to the north, the Jet City Bombers of Everett, WA, in a battle to see who rules over Seattle.
AST’s defense has been steadily improving as strong walls and teamwork make scoring for opposing jammers seem practically impossible. Throw in some tough and agile jammers, and it sounds like AST has everything they need for victory. But, the Bombers’ blockers know how to pack a punch using hard hits to tire their opponents out. With both teams finding success against Sacred City Derby Girls just last month, each are confident they can take the other down. One thing is guaranteed, this is going to be an intense and physical game.
But the night doesn’t begin there.
Saturday’s KeyArena games will open with Rat City’s B-Team, Rain of Terror (RoT) competing against the Dot.Kamikazes from Silicon Valley Roller Girls. RoT is coming off their first win of the season, beating Antagonist Roller Derby on May 10th. But this time, they will be going up against an A-Team, so they will have to be sure to bring their A game to keep their winning streak alive.
So, Rat City fans, be sure to represent your team by bringing out the GREEN!! We know that you’ve been looking for a reason to wear your Seahawks gear, so get crazy because we’ll be representing the most spirited fans on the jumbotron.
