NWA Roller Derby Season Opener February 22

Written by: Artemis Prime

Fayetteville, AR — On Sunday, February 22, Northwest Arkansas Roller Derby will begin their 9th official season with an exciting double header match-up against the Mo-Kan Roller Girlz from Joplin Missouri at Starlight Skatium in Fayetteville. “This season opener promises to deliver spectacular athleticism and action packed competitive skating between these two teams,” says NWA Roller Derby All-Star Captain, Rusty Guillotine.

The first game will feature the NWA Natural Disasters against the Mo-Kan Blockade. Last season these two teams met twice, with the first game going to the last jam. “It was a nail biter with a close final score of 218 to 236 Mo-Kan Blockade taking the win. However, we met again in June and won convincingly 319 to 39!” says Natural Disasters Captain Kat Krash Fever, “The Natural Disasters are ready and want to take the win.”

The second game will feature the NWA Roller Derby All-Stars, currently ranked #71 in Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), going against the Mo-Kan All Starz, ranked #106 in WFTDA. The last time these two teams met, the final score was 238-70 with NWA All-Stars taking the win. With Mok-Kan All Starz recently becoming full members of WFTDA, they’ll be looking to give NWA Roller Derby a run for their money in hopes to improve their rankings.

Doors for this double header season opener will be at 5pm, with the first game starting at 6pm at Starlight Skatium located at 612 N College Avenue, Fayetteville, Arkansas. A beer garden, sponsored by Core Brewing Company will be available when doors open, and make sure to catch half-time performances by Elite Dance Studios.
