Event: May Day Massacre
Date and Time: May 2nd, 2009, Doors at 6 pm, Bout at 7 pm
Location: San Jose Skate, 397 Blossom Hill Road 95123
Teams: SVRG Killabytes vs Sacred City Disciples & SVRG Dot.Kamikazes vs. SF ShEvil Dead
A double-header! Now there's something you don't see often in Northern California. Knowing how hard and demanding putting on one bout together is, I can't imagine how much work it takes to have two games in one night. But luckily, as a fan, I just get to sit back and watch twice the roller derby!
Dot. Kamikazes vs ShEvil Dead
Saturday night will be a rematch between the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls's home team the San Francisco ShEvil dead and Silicon Valley's A team, the Dot.Kamikazes. They played each other back in October and SF came out with a decisive win with a score of 126 to 55 score.
The SF line-up is noticably different this time around. They will be without jammers Exquisite Corpse and Miss Moxxxie who retired last year. They are also missing blockers Sassy Slayher and Terra NuOne, who transferred to the Chicago Outfit.
However, the SF teams rolls deep with several veteran players and a healthy crop of 2009 rookies who have been steadily increasing their skill and knowledge of the game.
While former SF player Pia Mess will be playing...she'll be playing for Silicon Valley! Pia left B.A.D. last year and has concentrated her efforts in coaching and playing for SVRG who is closer to her home. SVRG is fielding a roster much like the one from October. Almost all the players listed have been skating with the San Jose team for a bit and have a lot of experience.
Killabytes vs. Disciples
It's often hard to compare two teams who have never played each other before. Sometimes you can look at their individual playing histories and see if they played the same team at some point and judge how close the game may be by how close their scores were against the same team. As far as I can tell, the Killabytes have only played one game as their team is newly formed. So that's out! Back in May 2008, the Disciples played SVRG's A travel team, the Dot.Kamikazes. SVRG breezed through that game with a 123 to 57 win. But it's been a long year and these two teams have changed a lot.
In 2009, the Killabytes won in Fresno against the Valley Fever Roller Derby 150 to 94.
The Disciples have won their last two games. They played the Battle Born Derby Demons in April and won 121 to 52. In October 2008, the Disciples squeaked out a victory against Port City's travel team with a 63 to 44 win.
