Rollergirls Wrap Up 2009 Home Season Tonight

 

at Cincinnati Gardens

 

Roller derby fans have only one more chance to see the Cincinnati Rollergirls at the Cincinnati Gardens this season.  Cincinnati will take on Columbus's Ohio Roller Girls, tonight, Saturday, June 20 at 7 p.m., in the first public match-up between the two Ohio teams at the Gardens.

 

 

 

The event is another double-header bout, featuring both Cincinnati and Ohio's A and B (varsity and junior varsity) teams. The first bout will feature Cincinnati's B team, the Silent Lambs, who will oppose Ohio's Gang Green. In the main event immediately following, Cincinnati's Black Sheep - currently ranked 4th in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association's North Central region with a 4-1 record this season - will battle Ohio's all-stars, who are currently ranked 13th in the region with a 3-2 record.
