Roller Derby Report: Housewives Discipline Nuns 75-55

[Sports] On a Saturday loaded with events (Utah Arts Festival, Vans Warped Tour, WestFest, Ted McDonough's Irish Shake n' Bake BBQ, etc.), the Salt City Derby Girls still drew a sizable crowd to their fourth home roller-derby bout of the season at the Utah Olympic Oval. Since neither the Leave It to Cleavers nor the Sisters of No Mercy had won a game yet this year, expectations were less Clash of the Titans, more Special Olympics: The fans would be happy to see anyone come out on top.

It was a defensive bout, with plenty of hits and "girls going down like prom night" all over the track for two tight periods. The Sisters pulled ahead briefly in the first, but the Cleavers shut them down in the second, eventually disciplining the naughty nuns with a 75-55 paddling.

Next SCDG bout: July 12, with the SLC all-star Shakers going up against Colorado's Fort Collins Girls Gone Derby at the Oly Oval. Below: Pics from Saturday's bout by Mark "Official Derby Photog & Beer Guy" Alston:
