Doors open at 6 p.m., first whistle is at 6:30pm. Coming in to play are the fellow purple-clad team from down south, the Lilac City Rollergirls from Spokane, WA and the ladies in red, Avalanche City Rollergirls from Fernie. Both teams are looking for rematches with the Dams. Lilac City first played the Dams in May 2015, where the Dams showed them some derby love Canada style, however it wasn’t enough to take the win. In a rematch at Spokarnage in August 2015, the Dams showed their true colours and won. Lilac City will be the first to face the Dams in an attempt to dominate. Who will be the victor?
