Port City’s A team, the Breakwall Bombshells, will headline the evening with a rematch against the Capital City Derby Dolls Dolly Rogers from Ottawa. The Bombshells earned a hard-fought 139-132 victory in the Canadian capital when the teams met a few weeks ago.

PCRD’s B squad will open the bout against the Finger Lakes Lunachicks. The two teams met in a high-scoring March scrimmage won by Port City, 269-198, but the Lunachicks have been on a roll heading into this bout.

A portion of proceeds will support Suicide Awareness Voices of Education. The local chapter that aims to prevent suicide through public awareness and education was co-founded by Port City Roller Derby member J-Rock-It. PCRD members also will take part in the group’s Stride to SAVE Lives on Saturday morning, Sept. 21, on the SUNY Oswego campus.

Bout advance tickets, available from any league member, cost $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 12, with children 4 and under admitted free. Tickets can be purchased at the door but will cost $12 for adults. Attendees interested in trackside seating are encouraged to bring their own chairs.

Port City Roller Derby is produced by Oz Roller Girls Inc., a member-run nonprofit organization dedicated to athletic competition, empowerment and supporting its community. PCRD always seeks skaters, refs and other volunteers for its adult (18 and over) and juniors (ages 10 to 17) teams, and will provide training.
