Montreal 68 106 174
Oly Rollers 124 106 230
OLY: #14 ranked WFTDA team – Montreal: #12 ranked WFTDA team

The Oly Rollers took a 65-5 lead midway through the first half and never looked back in their 230-174 dismantling of Montreal Roller Derby’s traveling New Skids on the Block at Skatleland! on Sunday night.

In a chippy, nasty, scrum of a bout, Montreal tightened up in the second half and clawed their way back into the game behind the jamming of Mel E Juana and Miracle Whips  but could never get over the hump. They leave the Northwest with an 0-2 record after dropping a bout in Portland last night.

Lindsey Lowblow led the way for Oly, who bounced back from a rough Big O Tournament a couple of weeks ago in Eugene by beating the 12th ranked WFTDA team from Canada.

The Oly Rollers returned to sanctioned WFTDA bouts with a trip to the Big O Tournament in Eugene, Oregon and struggled mightily going 1-3 over the weekend.

Today, Oly, ranked #12 by the WFTDA as of March 31st, nearly made a big comeback but couldn’t quite get over the hump in a 139-130 loss to #35 Terminal City of Vancouver, BC and were blown out by #18 Philly Roller Girls 263-140. In day one of the Big O, Oly lost their opener 261-97 to #3 Texas Rollergirls then picked up their first win against a sanctioned WFTDA team on day two when they took down the #48 ranked team, Boise’s Treasure Valley Roller Girls, 219-84.

Oly returns home and will host another WFTDA bout on May 18th when Montreal Roller Derby comes to town.

Needing a big win, the Saints pounded out 20 hits including a 3-for-5, three RBI performance from Travis Shaw and three hits each from Zack Larsen, Zach Raczok and Chris Womac.  Game two of the doubleheader was rained out and was not needed to be played after the Saints clinched the playoff spot.

Behind the strong jamming of Jacky O Nastiest and Slamber Ella, the MIA Derby Girls made easy work of the Grunge City Rollers, 203-111, at the Bettie Bunker in Lacey on Saturday night.

It was Oly Sports first derby at the Bettie Bunker, the warehouse on Lacey Boulevard that the MIA Derby Girls and the JBLM Bettie Brigade share, and it has quickly and easily eclipsed Skateland! as the best place to watch derby in the Olympia area. It’s bright, open, has decent sound, a beer garden, concessions and has been nicely decorated with a big graffiti mural on one side and a red, white and blue derby mural on the other side.

The floor is a hard concrete warehouse floor and is very unforgiving on the skaters. Some of the tumbles that they took, especially in the fresh meat game that preceded the main event (MIA won 99-72), were particularly nasty and painful looking and made me uncomfortable watching their pain.

Bathroom facilities are a problem that will have to be worked out if the Bettie Bunker will continue to host events. Currently, the public restrooms are two honey buckets in the parking lot.

Also, parking is a bit of a problem. There is a small lot in the front of the building, one in the back of the building and there is a lot across Pacific Avenue at Pope John Paul II High School that was designated for derby parking. Unfortunately, you have to cross a field, the bike path and five lanes of Pacific to get to the lot and at night, it was unnerving, at best. The empty lot in front of the Bettie Bunker was blocked and closed to parking or else most people could have parked there.

No matter the problems, the Bettie Bunker is a good place to watch derby and it is obvious that MIA and JBLM are actively trying to make improvements to the facility for their skaters and fans. While the quality of roller derby played by the Oly Rollers at Skateland! is still far superior, their facility is not.
