Memorial Hall-It's the Friday before Halloween and KCRW is ringing in the holiday with an open scrimmage. Much like the Harry Potter themed bout last month, the audience was encouraged to participate in the outcome of this game as well. There were various cards that people could purchase that had different ways for the game to be played. The first game was all female and made up of Zombies and Survivors. There were players sent to the box, backwards skating and playing with your arms at your sides but The Survivors seemed to live up to their name and make it through 159 to 152. Game two almost had a George Romero ending on top of set backs in the first half. One of the players who usually skates for Fountain City was injured 12 minutes into the first half. After being taken away in the ambulance, it was decided to just take a few minutes to let the skaters warm back up and start the game at the beginning of the second period. The Zombies were leading until somebody used their card to swap the scores. The Survivors ended up winning 161 to 135. Join us on November 12th as The Roller Warriors introduce their newest players in The Rookie Bout. It's been a couple of seasons since there has been one of these so don't miss out. See your new favorite players start from the beginning and say you were there when... See you next month!
