The two all-star heavy teams will face off for the first time since Novembers nail-biting championship bout. Two thousand breathless derby fans hung onto the edge of their seats as the underdog
Cookies claimed victory by only two points in the last jam.
Now, the Sirens are pulling up their fishnets and planning revenge. The 2007 champions new captains recently led their girls in blue to a close victory against freshman team, the Varsity Brawlers. The officers will patrol the track again, anchored by three lightening-speed jammers: Kung Pow Tina, V. Lee and Mila Minute. Paired with crushing blockers Killo Kitty and P.I.T.A., the Sirens form a fierce force on the banked track.
The Cookies havent skated in a game since January, where they narrowly defeated the rejuvenated Fight Crew. Cookies captain Iron Maiven and co-captain Gori Spelling are eager to reclaim their dominance. The Cookies major crusher Krissy Krash, white-hot jammer Laguna Beyatch, and blockers Kelly Kaboom and LEGacy will show the Sirens their victory was no fluke.
Nationally renowned, the L.A. Derby Dolls are one of only five leagues in the U.S. playing roller derby on a banked track.
