2013 Season Opener
The Ithaca SufferJets will take on their neighbors to the north, Rochester’s Roc City Roller Derby all-star team, the Roc Stars, Saturday, May 11, 2013 at Cass Park Rink. Doors at 6:30 PM and the action begins at 7:00 PM.
The last time these two teams met at the Empire Skate Showdown in 2012, the Roc Stars were able to take the SufferJets by a narrow two point victory. Earlier in 2012, on March 24th, the SufferJets played the Roc Stars and had the lead at the half, and while it was a close game until the last 15 minutes it ended in a win for the Roc Stars: final score 125-93. Since 2009 when the SufferJets first met the Roc Stars and enjoyed a 94-81 win, they haven’t won since. What will happen on May 11, 2013 at the first home bout of season 6 of the SufferJets? And will you be there?
Join us for an all-ages event that combines powerful athleticism, community awareness, and you!
Your hometown team is always rolling for a good cause and this time we put the spotlight on the Advocacy Center of Ithaca. Ten percent of our bout proceeds will be donated to the Advocacy Center.
