Canadian Clubbers were defeated tonight by the Hammer City Harlots from Hamilton with a 110 – 295 loss in their Roller Derby match-up.
The Canadian Clubber’s are the local ‘B’ team, just underneath the Border City Brawlers. The group has made it a long way since starting in 2010 in Charles Clarke Square and are continuing to grow bigger and better.

“We’ve had one game prior to this,” said coach Punk’N (Christine Shaw). “We ended up losing, we ended up finding out that we played an A team so we got our butts handed to us but overall it took us to that next level. It shook us out of that and it’s a matter of coming together as a team these girls are molded together and it’s all about heart. Sometimes teams tend to split apart with different personalities and stuff, not this team. They’re molded and melded together.”

Every game, she said they go out with strategies but the main goal of every game is to have fun. This was only the teams second game ever.

During this game, two is the Canadian Clubber’s players were chosen as MVP. Drop Dead Alice(Lauren Larocque), and Traumasauras (Justine Hrycay). Drop Dead Alice was ejected from the game halfway through the second bout on injury. Dispite that, Drop Dead Alice showed true dedication to the game and came out as one of the top.

“It was intense,” said Drop Dead Alice. “I think we did a lot better than our first game. It’s a lot of the girls first time playing. We really shaped up this game I found, last game we were frantic but we really pulled together it was awesome.”

For the very first time, Traumasauras was honored to be chosen as one of the MVP. After taking hard hits during the intensive game, she said it was fun all around.

“They’re an excellent team,” said Traumasauras. “I think we all got a really good work out tonight and it was a lot of fun. They’re great girls, we chat on the line and we share jokes, and I think I hugged someone on the track by accident, during a block but it happens, it’s derby.”

Coach Punk’N said while roller derby is an intense sport, it’s all about practice. The best thing anyone can do is to grab a pair of skates and practice, outsides of the groups on their own time.

The team plans on continuing to work together and have fun on and off the track. Their next home game is scheduled June 28against Royal City, from Guelph.
