Michael and Son Sportsplex at Dulles is going to be jammed-packed with action on June 13, as NOVA Roller Derby takes over for a double header. First up, is a home team bout, with the Metro Misfits taking on the Vineyard Vixens. The Vixens have only played the Misfits once, in which they took home a decisive victory. The Misfits, however, are coming off of a win against the Beltway Betties, so this is anyone’s game.
Next up is the MADE SuperNOVAs final game of the season, against Empire State Roller Derby. The MADE SuperNOVAs are coming off of a win against South Jersey Roller Derby, in which Slammer Delaney and Surly Temper were named MVPs. Last year’s bout against Empire State was close, and they’re a notoriously hard-hitting team, so this is sure to be an exciting match-up.
Tickets to both bouts are only $10 if you buy them online at Brown Paper Tickets, or $12 at the door. NOVA Roller Derby is family-friendly, and we love it when kids come to watch us. Children 6 and under even get in free!
Doors open at 2:30, with the first whistle, for Misfits v Vixens, at 3:30. SuperNOVAS v Empire State will follow at 5:30. As always, bring your own chairs for the best seats.
NOVA Roller Derby’s Motto is, “Skate Hard, Give Back,” and this month, NOVA Roller Derby is proud to be partnering with LBHN – Loudoun Breast Health Network. They will be collecting gas and grocery gift card to benefit breast cancer patients and families in Loudoun County.
Our WFTDA travel team has been busy learning a new rule set. Recently, they drove up to Philadelphia to take on the indomitable Philly Cheeseskates. Though they lost, the SuperNOVAs were pleased that they achieved their personal goals, which included getting fewer penalties!
The big question on all of NOVA Roller Derby’s home team skaters is, “who’s going to win the championship this year?” The Vineyard Vixens had won every single game they’ve played, but that all that changed in May when The Beltway Betties defeated the Vixens. Dr. Frank N Hurter and Sewciopathic Stitch were named Vixens MVPs, while Maimy Pond and Bruise Lee were named MVPs for the Betties.
Will the Vixens come back and defeat the Misfits, or will the Misfits continue their winning streak that began at the end of last season? Find out this Saturday!
