TBR-vs-TVR---Credit-Richard-TompsettRecently The Bay Rollers took on their derby sisters the Tweed Valley Vixens, in a double header of derby in Lismore.

Coming out strong from the first whistle, the Bay Rollers soon extended their lead by well over 100 in the first 15 minutes.

While their second half saw more skaters in the penalty bin for rules infractions, the Bay Rollers came home strong with a 201 point win 257–56.

MVP was awarded to Slingshot Polkadot, The Bay Rollers captain.

Currently sitting in second place in the North Coast Derby Coalition year-long competition, the Bay Rollers will next play Clarence Valley Roller Derby in Grafton on Saturday October 26.
