Victoria B.C.: New roster announcements have been revealed for a number of teams within the Eves of Destruction. The Belles of the Brawl and the Margarita Villains each add one to their rosters. The Belles of the Brawl picked up Violet Criminal, while the Margarita Villains drafted Phenomadawn. Both skaters were graduates of the Eves’ Fresh Meat Program in 2016 and have been playing for the Eves’ rookie team, The Hard Cores, since then.
The all star team for the Eves of Destruction, The A-Team, also announced their 2017 roster this week. Most names on this roster will be familiar to fans, as all have skated for the Eves of Destruction in previous seasons. Felix the Brat returns to the team after a maternity hiatus, while C-3Ph0 has been moved up from her spot as an alternate to round out the roster. In 2017, the A-Team will be lead by veterans Frank’s Red Hot, No Mer’sea, and Roadhouse Bruise. The team will be looking to build on their successes from 2016, which saw them finish with a 5-0 record on the season.
This season, the Eves’ 11th in Victoria, marks their first as an Apprentice League of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), the governing body for women’s flat track derby worldwide. This is an exciting time for the Eves of Destruction, and they are looking forward to bringing an even higher calibre of roller derby to their fans in 2017!
