The championship in Kimberley recently was a fantastic night of roller derby. The Brawlers and the Rollbots played first to see who would move on to take the first place team, the Barbarians. The Rollbots came out with the win, and played a second game of the evening. The Barbarians lead almost the entire game in points, but in the last 4 minutes with a few Barb jammer penalties, the Rollbots caught up and won 166-153 to take home to championship. Congratulations, Rollbots!

Thank you to the League Sponsors:  RollerGirl, Nerd Skates, Columbia Basin Trust, Max’s Place, Western Financial Group and The Rob Stang Team (Rob Stang, Harry G, Lori Boettger).

Thanks so much to all the referees, NSOs, and volunteers, who make amazing derby events like this possible!
