Sibling Rivalry: The Rat City Rollergirls vs. Rose City Rollers
Seattle Fans, mark your calendars for the ultimate roller derby rivalry when the Rat City Rollergirls take on their sisters to the south, Rose City Rollers (Port. OR) in what will be an epic battle on the track, Saturday, February 19, 5:30 p.m. at the KeyArena. GET TICKETS NOW!
Itâ€™s a rivalry that started back in 2005 when Rose City home teams traveled up I-5 to take on the home teams of Rat City and only grew when Rat City traveled down I-5 to Portland in 2006 to return the favor. Of those early games, Rat City home teams were victorious in all but one bout. Then both leagues established All-Star teams and the rivalry intensified between these Northwest powerhouses.
This Northwest rivalry will push teams to perform at top-athletic intensity. Competition is stiff, players are hungry and fans are simply ravenous to see their home team, or in this case, teams win. That is exactly what the Sockit Wenches, Grave Danger, Throttle Rockets and Derby Liberation Front plan to do, WIN!
Come watch the second bout of the season as Rat Cityâ€™s home teams play the Rose City Rollers home teams. Teams have been matched-up based on their respective home team rankings from the 2010 season:
