Saturday, March 19th at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum
Phoenix, AZ (March 10). Arizona Derby Dames 2011 season is well underway as they offer up games 5 and 6 of the regular season on Saturday, March 19th at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum on the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Phoenix. Always bringing you double-header banked track roller derby action for just $12 to $20 (with kids 12 and under general admission seating always FREE); March’s event will feature the Coffin Draggers vs. the Schoolyard Scrappers and the Brutal Beauties vs. the Bombshells.
In September 2010, the undefeated Schoolyard Scrappers fell to the Coffin Draggers in the 2010 Championship game. This rematch sees a much different Scrappers team due to veterans retiring at the end of 2010. Led by new captain Mizz Nashty and new co-captain Bad Betty (previous Schoolyard Scrappers captain and co-captain Rowdy Roulette and Frankie Fitz mixed it up and went to the Runaway Brides for the 2011 season), the Schoolyard Scrappers are full of fresh faces, including four rookies playing their first game: Slam Helliot, Fussy Britches, Slugger Stardust and Strike Her Down. The Coffin Draggers hold on to their rock steady line up led by captain and co-captain Lora Stabs and Ginger Mortis, with the addition of one rookie, Jukulele Trebelmaker. For the second game of the night, the Bombshells and the Brutal Beauties, too, each welcomes a couple of rookies for this game. Kali Swag and Missed Her Hyde make their debuts as Bombshells while Smacaroni N’ Cheez and Skulz Out join the Brutal Beauties.
