Rink Minx vanquish Margarita Villains

Next home game for local ladies roller derby squad is June 29

The stats were against the Rink Minx as they prepared to play Victoria’s Eves of Destruction house team, the Margarita Villains. But they persevered and came out on top with a 239-191 win.

Very few penalties were witnessed for the Rink Minx in this fast-paced roller derby bout, with the jammers racing their way through the pack. Although blockers from both teams did a good job of not letting them through, the jammers’ speed was largely not slowed down.

The Minx’s own Sweet Sufferin’ (Jen Calla) and Foxy McMuff (Kim Emsley-Leik) made a great blocking pair, utilizing  “truck and trailer” with Foxy holding on to Sweet’s hips and swinging in the way of and into, opposing blockers and jammers.

Also delivering some big hits for the Rink Minx were Heavens2Gretzky (Emily Wisden) and Liz Cork’Em (Elizabeth Fyles) Awesome jamming skills were performed by LumberSmack (Taisa Brown), Whiskey Jack (Lisa Jackson) and guests Ruby Whipper (Twyla MacDonald) and Takasmashi (Cheryl Takahashi).

“I’m so proud of how well the whole team worked together,” said coach Gold E Bloxxx.

The game marked the return of Mooose, a Rink Minx skater who had been away in Japan, and true to form, she trampled her opponents. Miss Dubois Cherri, who has been off for some time furthering her education, was also welcomed back to the track.

The Minx travel to Powell River on June 15 and will be back for a home game on June 29 against the Sunshine Coast Rollergirls. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the great Minx sponsors:  Banner Landscaping, Mex Pub, Wild Seafood Enhancement Society and Rollergirl.ca.
