Rollers and ‘belles play good (dominant) hosts in Castlegar

Double-Header proves doubly successful for West Kootenay roller squads

The Selkirk College Gym

Castlegars Sunfest has a lot of variety going for it, and as June opened last week the variety included a double-bout spectacular at the Selkirk College gym.

Sacrificial participants arrived (willingly) from Kamloops and Spokane and were summarily dispatched by their, respective, hosts – Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers (436-132 over Tournament City Derby Dolls) and the West Kootenay Kannibelles all-star unit (299-78 over the Spokannibals from across the line.)

The glut of girlish aggression was punctuated by an outlet for the generous spirit of local fans – a benefit for the local Community Harvest Foodbank. Now there’s a true double header!
