MASON CITY – Saturday, April 7th, the Mason City Dames of Anarchy took on the Newton Rollin Rebels in a home bout of roller derby at the North Iowa Fairgrounds in the All Season’s Building.
At halftime, with the score of 69-28 and the ending score of 141-95, it seems like it was an easy win for the Dames of Anarchy. Getting to that score wasn’t that easy.
Both teams took hard hits. Many bodies hit the floor, some slower than others getting up, but all got up. The Rebels started to inch closer, but the Dames fought back and won by 46 points.
The Dames that played against the Rebels were: Stik Chik StalkHer, iRoc, Ice Pick, squiSHANDAsmack, Sandstorm, Bambi Killer, Skilla Killa, Granny Hot Pannies, Jane Gretski, Devilish, Bangcock Dangerous, Cruella DuVall, Wells Angel, AnaMosity, Dirty DodgeHer and Star Face.
