Saturday August 13th will be CNY Roller Derby's final home bout of the season!
If you liked our July 30th men's and women's double header, then you should definitely check this one out too. We are lucky enough to be hosting a full on New York vs Vermont battle royale with this bout, pitting the Central New York region against the Burlington, VT region.
The first bout will kick off at 5:30pm with The Quadfathers playing the Burlington Bomb Quads in heavy hitting men's roller derby action. The Quadfathers are coming off a win against the Capital District Trauma Authority , and also recent acceptance into the Men's Roller Derby Association, and are looking to keep their roll going. The Quadfathers and the Bomb Quads last met in Burlington in March for a closed door bout in which the Quadfathers won 156-64.
At or around 7:30pm The CNY All Stars will be competing against the Green Mountain Derby Dames' Grade A Fancy who hail from Burlington, VT in a WFTDA sanctioned game. The CNY All Stars have had a great season so far with a record of 4-1. This game caps off a great inaugural season for the All-Stars travel team. According to Flat Track Stats, CNY is ranked #16 in the East region and Green Mountain is #23 currently. Dont let this stat fool you that this game is expected to be easy- When CNY and Green Mountain last met on March 13th 2010 in Essex Junction VT, Green Mountain dominated 102-43 against our then-travel-team the Utica Clubbers. CNY has come a long way since then however, and with a formal travel team, a ton of new talent, new coaching and a very different roster, this will not likely be a repeat of a near blowout.
Green Mountain is one of the newer WFTDA leagues accepted at the same time as CNYRD (late 2010), and has a very similar history, timeline, and size to CNYRD. This represents a very good match up in terms of league's available talent pool, region size, and ability. We are very excited to finally return the favor of hosting these ladies as we loved meeting and playing them last year.
We might even be lucky enough to witness a mascot vs mascot crowd riling extravaganza as Green Mountain's Gang Green tries to outdo hometown hero and CNY All-Stars mascot Starface! There's going to be entirely too much green involved one way or another:)
Announcing the men's bout will be Harry Crumb and Rebel Without A Pulse, and announcing the women's bout will be Rebel with Blackjack.
DJ'ing both bouts will be DJ Deaf Goeff, aka Funk Roll Brother.
