Saturday, Oct. 24: While the planned Salt City Derby Girls’ expo bout at the Gallivan Center in SLC was rained out (skating on wet cement, never a good idea), Ogden’s Junction City Roller Dolls’ season-ender bout at the Davis Conference Center in Layton went off without a hitch--and the theme wasn’t Black vs. Blue! ---It was the Bone Bettys (skeletons) vs. the Charmed Ones (witches) in an obviously Halloween-themed game.

Skeletons may be more aerodynamic than witches, or the Bone Bettys simply wound up with all of the JCRD’s best jammers in the expo split: Either way, the Charmed Ones couldn’t keep up on the scoring front, despite impressive runs by Killa Patra and especially Le Tigre, who probably jammed more than all of the other witches combined.

Score at the half: Bone Bettys 73, Charmed Ones 39.

The witches closed the gap slightly in the second half, but strong Bettys jammers Colonel Skirts, Sarin Gasp and Miss Take (skating her final bout before retiring from the league) kept slamming home the points and sent the Charmed Ones crying back to the cauldron. Yeah, yeah--it ain’t easy mixing sports and Halloween metaphors, OK?

Final score: Bone Bettys 123, Charmed Ones 103.

Shots from Saturday’s bout (Bone Bettys in black, Charmed Ones in purple/orange):
