The Saturday, May 9 bout of the Salt City Derby Girls’ 2009 roller-derby season was a milestone for one team: The Sisters of No Mercy, who carved out their first victory in almost two years. The black-clad nuns dominated the green (in every sense; the team is mostly newbies this year) Bomber Babes 168-89 over two very physical half-hour periods.

Sisters jammer Violence Vicksen scored first, and subsequent jams by Nyda the Dead and Beracooter solidified an wide lead over the Bombers. Even several impressive in-the-zone scoring runs by Bomber NOS (some of which saw her skating backwards and airborne) couldn’t make up the difference. By the half, the Sisters were leading 70-43.


Bomber Babes jammers Donkey Punch and Swine Flu (#H1N1, of course) made some serious attempts to catch NOS’ fire in the second half, and blocker Phatal Pheromone’s kamikaze hits sent several Sisters to their knees for more than a prayer. But it was the Sisters of No Mercy’s night, marking SCDG founder Brew Ha Ha’s second team win in her own league’s history, 168-89.

Next SCDG bout: A double-header with all four SCDG teams (the Bombers, the Sisters, the Death Dealers and the Leave It to Cleavers) playing in one night, at the Salt Palace on Saturday, June 6. Info: SLCDerby.com.
