Derby Dollz down Sunshine Coast

Chilliwack Voodoo Derby Dollz Roller Derby Association, Sunshine Coast

The Chilliwack Voodoo Derby Dollz Roller Derby Association kicked off the holiday season Saturday with ‘Deck the Dollz.’

The Dollz faced the Sunshine Coast Roller Girls at the Landing Leisure Centre in their second bout ever — a hard fought, action packed and extremely physical match.

With moustaches etched on their upper lips in recognition of Movember (prostate cancer awareness), the Dollz grabbed the lead from the first jam and held on for the rest of the game.

The final score was 110-54, but the real winners were the Chilliwack’s firefighters.

They operated the beer garden and concession, and were able to raise just over $900 in support of Movember.

Anyone who would still like to donate can click online to http://ca.movember.com, where the Derby Dollz team account can be found under their team captain’s name, Brad Kemp.
