Soonami strike gold in Sudbury

Preamble for you, Gentle Reader, [that’s you reading this – greetings!] out there in the world of Derby: Sault Ste Marie headed north on the weekend for the inaugural bout between the two leagues of Nickel City in Sudbury and SRD with a little bit of interjection from one of the teams of Timmins. Sunday was an exhibition match that raised the roof which is a common theme for the weekend across the province.

There must be something in the water up there in the Nickel City. Just last summer on July 24 teams from GTA Rollergirls in the guise of the Derby Debutantes took part in an exhibition bout against Thames Fatales in Sudbury’s Dr. Edgar Leclair Community Centre/Arena in Azilda to showcase the sport of Derby before what seemed to be a crowd of 600 energized by the display of brutalbeauty.
