Revention's got a no weapons policy at the door but, no worries, because all the action — and plenty of violence — is in the ring when the toughest female athletes in town go into battle for the Houston Roller Derby's 2017 Championship double header event. Things don't look good for the Bayou City Bosses, coming in to the match with a 0-5 record, but Captain Betty Watchett and Co-Captain Dropkick Betty are bringing their A-game when they go up against The Valkyries, doing much better this season with a 3-2 record. As long as they don't veer from their winning strategies, Valkyries' Captains Hot Assets and Slayer Moon should take this one for the distance. Game two pits The Brawlers (2-3) against the undefeated The Psych Ward Sirens. Brawlers' Captain Payo Dues and Co-Captain Hellen Killer are preparing for the fight, but will they have enough to defeat the indomitable Psychs helmed by Captain Jekyll & Heidi and Co-Captain Mad Milkshake? Don't miss the inevitable victory laps during the after party at Christian's Tailgate White Oak.
