Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport - Therese Col­man

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.
