The Orlando Psycho City Derby Girls Season Opener on February 15th had an amazing turn out! The teams were comprised of the entire league for a mixed scrimmage style bout. We had Red VS Purple who took on the names of the “Star Crossed Shovers” and “The Overly Attached Girlfriends” embracing the “Bloody Valentine” theme. Each team played extremely well and gave the crowd a close match! The Star Crossed Shovers had the lead at half-time, but the Overly Attached Girlfriends came through for the win with 214 points!

This bout also had a few highlights including a new skater  and two skaters retiring from our league. OPCDG acquired a transfer skater from South Korea last December! This was Ric N’ Havoc’s debut bout with our league. ‘Havoc’ has now found a home with the Sunnyland Slammers. You can see her play next on April 12th vs. the Serial Thrillers.

The league also had wonderful media coverage from Orlando Sentinel! Photographers from all over Orlando came out to record the event. Before the big game, some of the players were on AM 740 The Game. Listen to the recording here.  All media articles and photographers are linked below.

Orlando also wants to wish Dahmer’s Dearest and Velocislappedher the best of luck in their new adventure with Tampa Roller Derby. This was their last bout as Orlando Psycho sisters. Orlando Derby will truly miss them and will be counting the days until we play together again. Velocislappedher played for the Sunnyland Slammers and Dahmers Dearest played for the Arkham Assailants. Both players were pivitol roles for the travel team The Straight Jackettes. Dahemer’s Dearest held two leadership roles within the league. She was the media director as well as the Straight Jackettes captain.
