The Scouting Report
In their final regular-season home bouts before the Division 1 playoffs begin, the River City Rollergirls defend the GRCC rink during a doubleheader against two different teams. This season has already seen its share of bruising battles, highlighted by a hard-fought victory from the Uncivil Warriors on June 23. During that matchup against Key City, the Warriors emerged from overtime with a 218-213 win. Now, the club looks to ride the momentum into July, especially when the regional rival Rocktown Rollers skate into town on July 27. That evening also features River City's own Poe's Punishers in the first half of the doubleheader, as they square off against the Rhode Island Riveters.
River City Rollergirls
Teachers and doctors. Moms and sisters. The River City Rollergirls don't really care who you are, as long as you're ready to hit someone—and foster an environment that values diversity and gender equity in the process.
The skater- and volunteer-operated league sprouted in early 2006 as Richmond's first all-women's flat-track roller-derby association. At the start, the league featured just two teams—Poe's Punishers and the Uncivil Warriors—but has since expanded to include new members, including the Carytown Cadets, the Hollywood Undertakers, and the Jackson Wardens. All teams take falls and crack skulls as part of the Eastern region of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association. But off the track, players put away their growling game faces when participating in community-outreach programs.
