Our Level 2 skaters travelled to beautiful Fernie B.C. this past weekend to take on the challenge of playing Avalanche City’s BombsQUAD. Both teams stepped up their game impressively playing a full bout short benched, Fernie beginning with a bench of 8 and GEJRDA beginning with 7 which turned into 6 towards the end of the 2nd half when GEJRDA lost a skater to penalties. A hard fought battle by both teams which resulted in an eventual win for GEJRDA over BombsQUAD with an official score of 230-174. Junior Roller Derby has the best after parties and the small group of fantastic junior skaters had a splashing good time at Fernie’s Stanford Inn taking advantage of their famous Waterslide. A very big thank you to Fernie for hosting us and to Coach Cat who went above and beyond to make sure that this game happened for her young skaters, and of course to the parents who support their children and their passions and make things like this possible.
This Sunday we officially wrap up our spring season (even though spring seems to be lost) with Capital City Carnage. We have a level 1/2 scrimmage followed by a full contact level 3 scrimmage. Prizes, hot dogs and lots of fun. There will be a yummy All Star Bake Sale! We invite you all to come out and watch. Admission is $10! Level 1/2 game begins at 11:30 and level 3 at 1:30 at Edmonton Sportsdome 1104 32 Ave. NW.
We would also like to send well wishes to Coach Cherry-oto-Fire and her husband Stephen. They are about to embark on an adventure with their wee one Liberty, they are packing up and moving to Indiana. They will be missed but we wish them “all the good things”
Please come out and give Cherry a proper send off as she plays her last home game as an Arch Angel Saturday night in the good company of GEJRDAs Shelly Helly and Jennasaurus Wrex. The Beezlebubs roster will also be topped up by GEJRDA’s Pippy, Punch Buggy, Morgan Mayhem and Lemon Drop.
