Cats & Dogs, Go Orange for Animals
On Saturday, March 25th, Grand Raggidy Roller Derby have invited to the track Maine Roller Derby from Portland, ME and Illiana Derby Dames from Lynwood, IL.
First to hit the track will be Grand Raggidy Attack and the Illiana Derby Dames. This will be an exciting event because these teams have never played one another before. The stats show that Attack has a 90% chance of winning, scoring 31 points to ever 15 that Illiana scores. Will Attack be able to beat the spread? Or will Illiana pull out the punches and gain victory? You will have to be there to see it! Next to put skates to the track will be Grand Raggidy’s All Stars versus Maine Roller Derby. Maine Roller Derby sits at #71 in the WFTDA, whereas Grand Raggidy sits at #69. This will be a close game with about a 50% probability for either of the two teams winning. Neither of these teams have play one another before so get ready for some quick feet and hard hitting.
