Who could miss a roller derby rivalry rematch right here in Raleigh? Not you that's who!
Come see the Carolina Rollergirls of the Triangle area return for their 11th season of roller derby with a double header against the Charlotte Roller Girls on Saturday, March 7th at the Dorton Arena (North Carolina State Fairgrounds) beginning at 2:00pm. When the Carolina All-Stars last faced off against the Charlotte All Stars in July of last year, the ladies from Charlotte won 211 to 161. The Carolina Rollergirls will be looking for redemption and a shot to improve their international roller derby rankings with this bout.
"This game is going to be tough – Charlotte beat us on the road this year and we are excited to play them on our home turf," said Dot Bomber, a veteran Carolina Rollergirl. "This is great bout for the CRG return to Dorton Arena."
Playing a team so close to home presents a challenge as many of the hometown Carolina Rollergirls play alongside women from Charlotte on Team North Carolina All Stars, a roller derby team that is made up of the best roller girls in the state. Team North Carolina travels the country playing other state level teams. From playing on the same team, the skaters from the two leagues know each other's strategies well.
Carolina Rollergirls All-Star Slingin' Gritz plans on showing no mercy to her fellow Team North Carolina rollergirls from Charlotte. "I will be watching all the tricks that my Charlotte teammates can pull." Slingin' Grits continued, "Because for one day on March 7 in Dorton, we are no longer teammates!"
The hometown Carolina Rollergirls will be looking for revenge in what is sure to be an action packed bout full of hard hits and tough ladies! Doors will open at 2:00 p.m. At 3:00 p.m., the Carolina Bootleggers will take on the Charlotte B Dazzlers. The headlining bout starts at 5:00 p.m. as the Carolina All-Stars take on the Charlotte All Stars. The event is open to all ages. Adult tickets are in advance or at the door.
