July 8, 2013, Comox Valley (ISN) – Saturday July 6, Comox Valley Sports Centre Roller Derby action Rink Minx in keeping their un beaten streak alive with a 276-246 victory over home town rivals Brick house Betties.

Sweet Sufferin lives up to her name with a less than ”sweet” leg injury as she is being cared for by the ever present St John Ambulance crew then transported to the hospital by ambulance. At last report, there were no broken bones, only a very sore hip and possible torn knee muscles.

Roller Derby is not for the feint of heart as it is non stop action on the short track with lots of hits and spills. As pictured, the girls with stars on the helmet are the only players allowed to score points with team mates setting up offensive and defensive maneuvers as they circle the track.
