The two teams recently duked it out on June 2nd in Oswego where the Oz Roller Girls narrowly pulled out a 130-127 win against the Lumber Jills. Both teams are anxiously awaiting this heated re-match only a few weeks away. “We can’t wait to skate against the Oz girls again in July,” said Carlovely of the Lumber Jills. “We’ve been working hard since we last saw them and can’t wait to show them what we’ve got up our sleeve this time around.” Carlovely won the “Heavy Hitter” trophy in Oswego earlier this month. This is sure to be a re-match worth remembering and the making of a long-lasting rivalry between two very talented teams.
In addition to fast skating and heavy hitting, fans will be able to enjoy the beer garden, provided by Olive Ridley’s, bake sale goodies, and tons of new Lumber Jill summer merchandise. Plattsburgh Roller Derby’s cheerleading squad, the Lumber Jill Chainsaws, will also be back and ready to cheer their team to victory.
