Rollergirls take on French Broads

by Staff Reports

The Appalachian Rollergirls will take on rival the French Broads of Asheville in a roller derby match at Skateland USA in Newton.

The match begins at 2 p.m. Saturday. Skateland is located at 2820 Highway 70 SE in Newton. Proceeds from the game will benefit the Hickory Soup Kitchen.

The Rollergirls are 0-3 this season after losing to the Rouge Rollergirls of Fayetteville by 14 points in their last match. ARG president Ashley Laws said the Appalachian Rollergirls have been competitive in their matches, but have fallen short each time.

"This season has been really fun and we've had some close games.  Our team gets better and more efficient every time we play," Laws said. "We are definitely ready for a win."

The doors open at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 on the day of the match. Kids under 10 years old are free.

Tickets can be bought in advance at Woodlands BBQ, Piedmont Federal Savings Bank, Lucky Penny and Café Portofino.
