It’s a Grand Final of Mythic Proportions!
Canberra Roller Derby League’s 2018 home season comes to an end with a Grand Final triple header on 17 November. This evening will have more ferocity and spellbinding magic than Cerberus, the three-headed dog guarding the underworld.
Canberra Roller Derby League’s four home teams will be battling for the honour of the Bronze Final and the Darby Derby Cup.
In a classic underdog tale (sorry Cerberus), the Brindabelters will be vying for the Darby Derby Cup for the fourth time in the history of the League. In a rematch of last year’s Grand Final, the Belters are up against the all-conquering, back-to-back-to-back grand final victors, the Red Bellied Black Hearts.
The Belters have had an amazing season. Game after game they have defied the odds to beat back the competition with gutsy, never-say-die play. The Black Hearts are experts at finals though, and always save their best until last.
If that isn’t enough, the bronze final game is another blast from the past. The League’s two foundation teams – the Surly Griffins and the Black ‘n’ Blue Belles – battle it out for the Bronze. The Griffs and the Belles have a long history as rivals and both teams have a stake in adding another notch to their skates.
All four home teams (the mighty Brindabelters, the Surly Griffins, the majestic Black ‘n’ Blue Belles, and the Red Bellied Black Hearts) have members of our world-beating Vice City Rollers, plus a mix of debuting, newer, and experienced skaters. Skaters include international roller derby representatives ShortStop, Freudian Slit, Bambi von Smash’er, Lady Painicorn, Laser Station, Slinger and Sickly Shriek.
The finals start with a Junior Roller Derby bout featuring CRDL’s own Prime Sinisters. These young skaters will show us all just how fearless children and young people can be. Our Prime Sinisters include Angel Backstab and Miss Conduct who have skated for Team Australia Junior Roller Derby, and we are so proud of all of our juniors.
Get trackside on 17 November for a look into the League’s future and a look back at its past. You couldn’t wish for a better triple header!
