The Dam City Rollers derby team is practicing hard in preparation for their upcoming play-off game in Rossland on Aug. 19. The ladies will be taking on the Babes of Brutality for second place.

“We want to encourage people to come up to Rossland and cheer us on. We’re going to play our hearts out,” said Kitty Karnage.

 

The Rollers are coming off the inaugural season which saw the Castlegar team competing with the best teams in the league from the get go.

“We were really happy with everything that went on through the season. We worked really hard,” said Russian 2KillYa. “We played really and we’re coming into the play-offs the the number three position so we’re pretty happy about that.”

“It’s kind of awesome that as a first year team, we’re playing for second already,” said Karnage.

The league the ladies play in, the seven team West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League (KWWRDL), is considered the largest derby league in Canada.

“The response from the community has been really good. It’s been great,” said Karnage.

2KillYa expects a rough game against the Babes on Aug. 18. “The Babes have been around for an extra year longer then we have. They have some amazing players. They have a player  on  Team Canada on their squad,” she said. “We’re looking forward to it.”
