Power SIRG Pick Up a Home Win at The Pavilion
The Southern Illinois Roller Girls hosted a double header at The Pavilion in Marion, Illinois on Saturday, April 2.
This double header featured a scrimmage bout between two teams looking to gain experience to work into a main roster spot. Puppy Lovers and Cat Ladies squared off against each other. Each of these teams were made up of competitors from Southern Illinois.
The main bout consisted of the Southern Illinois Roller Girls, and the Confluence Crush Heartbreakers from the St. Louis area. The match was hard fought with the Heartbreakers taking an early lead.
After falling behind early, the Power SIRG came back and pushed through the competition. “Killer Keebler” scored major with several points as the jammer.
Watch a playlist with coverage from the two bouts. For those unfamiliar with roller derby, Mattaconda, co-coach of the Power SIRG, breaks down some of the rules and guidelines to the sport.
