Cabernet look for fine finish
Margaret River’s Cabernet Savages beat Albany’s Great Southern Breakers 144-117 in Albany last month.
It was the third bout between Margaret River and Albany in women’s flat-track roller derby this season.
Margaret River will play in Perth on September 23 and 24 as part of the WA Boom State Clash tournament.
It will be the last event of the year for the Cabernet Savages, who will take a break over the next few months and regroup in February.
Margaret River’s Sarah Kissell said the team were eager to get training for Adelaide’s Great Southern Slam in June.
“TGSS is the biggest roller derby event in the southern hemisphere and sees leagues from all over Australia and New Zealand play,” she said.
“It’s held every two years and this will be the third time the Cabernet Savages from Margaret River Roller Derby will be attending.”
The Cabernet Savages are encou- raging new recruits for the 2018 season.
“We like to emphasise that you don’t necessarily need to be a skater to join,” Kissell said.
“There are heaps of other ways to be involved in the league and we’d love to have anyone come along who are interested in being part of an awesome group of people in a lessthan-mainstream sport.”
Margaret River's Sarah Kissell has the Albany team hot on her heels.
