SVRG vs Valley Fever

Leagues: Silicon Valley Roller Girls v Valley Fever Roller Derby
Teams: SVRG Killabytes v VFRD
Date: April 4th, 2009
Location: Fresno, CA

Silicon Valley's brand-spankin'-new B team, the Killabytes, will be traveling to Fresno this weekend to battle the Valley Fever Roller Derby.

The Valley Fever girls, as I understand it, are a brand new league that was born from a split league. From what I hear, this is their first bout as a league. The event is appropriately named "First Blood." Some of the girls are on the roster seem to be former Smog City skaters but most of the names are unfamiliar to me.

Now, when it comes to Fresno...I got nothing. I didn't even know there was a split! Apparently the original Fresno league Smog City is now defunct and there are two new leagues in that area, the Valley Fever and No-Town.

Huh. Interesting.

Silicon Valley's team, the Killabytes, are playing their first bout as a team. They are technically the traveling B team for the league but the roster includes some skaters from their A team, the Dot Kamikazes.

The girls are being currently being coached by veteran B.A.D. retirees Pandamonium and Pia Mess along with current B.A.D. All-star Brawllen Angel. Also rounding out the coaching for the San Jose team is Denny aka Left Turn Only. So they've gotten plenty of wisdom and advice from these four. LTO and Pandamonium will be bench coaching for the team this weekend in Fresno.

Good luck to both new teams in their bout this Saturday! I'm sure I'll have a brief score update for you by Sunday :)

Thanks for the bout preview; I'll let you know how the bout goes. I'm really excited for this bout. The KillaBytes have trained really hard and have a bunch of new talent that has great derby potential.

However, I'm bummed out that I have to miss another Oakland bout!!! I have been dying to see you guys but SVRG's schedule keeps on over lapping B.A.D's schedule. Send the team my love!!!
