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.
