Candy Land Massacre: Doesn’t That Sound Sweet…


Providence, RI: Last month, after a fair fight and a fair-weather flood, 2008 champions, the Old Money Honeys, defeated the Mob Squad 98 to 75. On July 17th, 2009 the Mob Squad will skate again to take on the Sakonnet River Roller Rats at the Bank of America Skating Arena in Kennedy Plaza in July’s biggest rage race, Candy Land Massacre.

After their defeat, the Mob Squad will try to prey on the sneaky, squeaky and stealthy Rats. Even with a 22 point deficit against the Old Money Honeys, the Mob Squad saw vital skating by veteran Jetta von Diesel and Providence Roller Derby’s newest Mobster, Bleeding Rainbow. Despite their defeat Rhode Kill has trained some of the meanest most vile creatures ever to put on skates. Her rookies, Axe A. Dental, Hit and Run Paulene, Penny Candy Poison, Rose Creeper and Vicious Stylz proved to be integral to the Mob’s artful plan. Meanwhile, with not a win in their furry little paws since 2007, Craisy Dukes will lead the 2009 Rats to challenge the Mob. New to this group of rat ninjas are, Hellcat Lucy, Hot Apple Cry, Maul E. Crue, Shamblock, Slamarella and Crue Hella DaKill. After taking a season off to tend to knee injuries Hotsauce is finally back and skating for the Rats. The Rats have also put a trick up their sleeve, having absconded with mobster Malady D’Amour; this bout will prove to be anyones game

Come see this exciting new pack of Rats as they take on the legendary Mob Squad. Enjoy all the Providence Roller Derby has to offer including “Off the Ground”, performing during half time and DJ’s Breezee and the Count spinning all that makes these roller derby queens go ‘round!
