The Garden State Rollergirls’ (GSR) Brick City Bruisers will take on Lehigh Valley Roller Derby on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
“The game against Lehigh is the last of the season, and they will be a competitive opponent,” said Bruisers co-captain Greta Turbo.” But the Bruisers have been growing in strength and unity exponentially.”
The Bruisers will head into the bout with a record of 3-4 and the skaters are hoping to show off the progress they’ve made this year.
“When you are at the end of a long, dramatic season, there’s a real comradery that develops because we’ve dominated, struggled, won, and lost together over the better part of a year, ” continued Turbo. “You can see that bond on the track, on the bench, everywhere. We trust each other, we play as a team, and this game is going to be one to watch.”
The two teams will face-off at the Inline Skating Club of America in North Arlington, New Jersey on Saturday, October 13. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. and the first whistle is at 8:00 pm.
Spectators should be sure to get their tickets in advance at brownpapertickets.com. Admission is $15 at the door and $10 online.
Fans will also be able to purchase GSR merchandise and participate in a bake sale and raffles.
