Saturday, April 30: Ogden’s Marshall White Center was packed (not too difficult; the rec center only holds 100 or so around the track) with derby fans eager to see their hometown rollergirls face off against each other for the first time this season. ---

While much-improved over previous seasons, the O-Town Derby Dames are still no match for the continually-impressive Junction City Roller Dolls, who dominated the bout from the first whistle—within 10 minutes, JCRD’s all-star Trainwrecks were already up 40 points on OTDD’s 25th Street Brawlers. Most of those were scored by Trainwrecks jammers Wee Smasha, Killa Patra and Zelda Cruz (who’s never above a little showboating when she’s in the zone), while Brawlers jammers No Name Dame and Josie Cansockahoe scrapped hard for every point they could get.

Score at halftime: Junction City Roller Dolls 134, O-Town Derby Dames 36.

Things didn’t go any better for O-Town in the second half, as Junction City piled on more points and the game-stopping injuries escalated: JCRD’s Hanna Bull had already gone down hard in the first half; OTDD’s Pepper Diamond and JCRD’s Demon Darlin’ in the second. Beyond that, the bout wasn’t exactly heading toward a nail-biting conclusion.

Final score: Junction City Roller Dolls 285, O-Town Derby Dames 43.

Next JCRD home bout: Saturday, May 21 at the Davis Conference Center in Layton; tickets and info: JCRDolls.com. Next OTDD home bout: Saturday, Aug. 27 at Golden Spike Arena in Ogden; tickets and info: OTownDerbyDames.com. Full local bout sked here at Utah Roller Derby 2011.

Elsewhere in Derby World over the weekend: SLC’s Salt City Derby Girls suffered a three-peat loss at the Mayday Mayhem round-robin tournament in Greely, CO on Saturday and Sunday. Over in Colorado Springs, CO, SLC’s Wasatch Roller Derby (who play again locally this Saturday, May 7) defeated the Pikes Peak Derby Dames 100-73.
