The Snake Pit Derby Dames, returning for their fourth season of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby, earned their second win of the 2014 season in as many bouts in impressive fashion last Saturday night at Skate Plaza in Coeur d’Alene. The all-star team – known as the Venomous Vixens – defeated the Cherry City (Salem, Ore.) Roller Girls’ Dolls of Anarchy 226-127 before a rowdy crowd of close to 300 fans. The bout, which offered a special free admission, was sponsored by the league and Skate Plaza, which also collected four big containers of canned goods for the Community Action Partnership (CAP) Food Bank. Full story of match here.
Next Home Bout: Snake Pit’s next home bout will be a doubleheader at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds Saturday. The Vixens host the Palouse River Rollers and Snake Pit’s juniors team – the Sweet Fangs – rumble with the Cherry Bomb Brawlers of Spokane. Admission is $5 in advance for adults and $8 at the door. Children 10 and under are admitted free.
