[Alt-Sports] The Salt City Derby Girls' all-star Shakers team faced off against Reno's Battle Born Derby Demons Saturday night at the Utah Olympic Oval in the tightest interleague game of the season thus far. Possibly some of the tightest uniform bootie-shorts, as well.
The BBDD took an early lead in the first half; jammers Short Fuse and Ginger Snatch catching the SCDG Shakers off-guard with pure speed and slippery strategy. But Lady Shatterly (one of SCDG's highest scorers, skating her final bout) quickly made up the difference almost single-handedly and put the Shakers in the lead for the remainder of the night. Final score: 141-113, Salt City Shakers for the win.
Next SCDG bout: Reigning champs the Bomber Babes vs. the Sisters of No Mercy, Saturday Sept. 6 at the Utah Olympic Oval. Yes, already; busy roller-derby season.
