The Gold Coast Maids of Pain captain, Alice Affliction served up a huge dose at Saturday night’s game again Byron


On Saturday night the Bay Rollers invited their northern neighbours down for a dose of pain as their first guests in their new home at the Byron Regional Sports and Cultural Complex.

The Gold Coast sent a dozen of their Maids of Pain down to Byron to show the local girls they mean business in the derby.

The final score of 196 to 75 going Gold Coast’s way doesn’t tell the story of the game, which saw much bone crunching action from the girls and the refs.

The Bay Rollers are a fairly new team and if Saturday’s match is anything to go by, there will be big things coming out of the Bay, and derby enthusiasts will have plenty to satisfy them.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
