In case you missed our June 18 home bout at Perry Park Rink, you missed the Circle City Derby Girls' Socialites scoring a record 468 points against their opponent, the Little Steel All Stars (Youngstown, Ohio), a rare feat for any roller derby team (final score: 468-36). The CCDG Party Crashers also skated hard, but ultimately lost to Naptown Roller Girls' Third Alarm (230-157).
Our next double-header, Bout #4, is Saturday, July 16. The Socialites and Party Crashers will face Black-n-Bluegrass Roller Girls' A & B teams. This will be CCDG's second time facing BBRG this season after a hard fought bout in Covington, Ky., in May. After Bout #4, fans will be have just one more chance to catch CCDG this season at home: Saturday, August 6.
