Disloyalist star continues to rise

On Saturday, Kingston Derby Girls’ Disloyalists headed to The Bunker in Toronto to take on Toronto Roller Derby’s D-VAS (Deadly Viper Assassination Squad). Playing at Downsview Park’s Bunker, the site of the first Roller Derby World Cup, was something like playing on Wrigley Field or at Fenway Park for our team. The D-VAS team receives coaching from some of the best players in Ontario, so tensions were high. Our Disloyalist lineup featured two of the league’s recent drafts, Jamburglar and Ker-Osene, and a range of newer jammer talent, including Yo! Shanity Slam, recently drafted from the Skateful Dead.

Continuing to capitalize on their grasp of pack strategy and ability to work as one, the Disloyalists pulled quickly ahead, and though the D-VAS surged back in the second half, they were never able to close the gap between the two teams. The final score was 314 to 55 for the Disloyalists.

TORD were wonderful hosts (cheesecake brownies!) — thank you, TORD and D-VAS, for having us and for the great game. Our team did us proud in the Bunker; we’re also proud that two of our refs, Fraud Flintstone and John Eh Smackdonald, represented our zebras well on the track. The Kingston Derby Girls are earning a reputation for excellence in the derby world, and we can’t wait to see where this season continues to take us!

Read the excellent and detailed coverage of the bout by The Derby Nerd. You can even watch the bout online! The first half is here, and the second half is here. Grab some popcorn and enjoy some heavy-hitting, smart derby!
