The flat-track frenzy of St. Louis-based Arch Rival Roller Derby returns to Midwest Sport Hockey this Saturday night and the double header that lies ahead is shaping up to be the most-intense yet.
In the opener that launches at 6:30 pm, it’s a battle of unbeatens as the Smashinistas (2-0) tussle with Rebel Skate Alliance (2-0). Then in the night cap, the M-80s (0-2) and the Stunt Devils (0-2) compete to see who gains that first elusive win of the season.

Saturday’s showdown between the undefeated squads is based upon the strong performances both have displayed in the first two games of ARCH’s six-event regular season. Earlier this month, RSA kept their record spotless with an impressive 253-140 victory over the defending champion Stunt Devils.
Jammers Darth Tator, Boba Flash and Admiral Aggbar churned ahead the points thanks to blocking provided by Endorable!, Titanium Falcon, SITH HAPPENS, Lethal Dose, Wookie Monster, Zombie Plagueis, Spock N’ Roll, Jabba the Butt, Han Rolo, CP3 Oh-No!, Storm Bruiser and Obi-Wan Kanosebleed.
Also impressive three weekends ago where the surging Smashies, who topped the M-80s, 204-191. Jammers Frowntown, Olive Smashin’, Smashing Violet and Skeevie Nicks are complimented by blockers Cloak N’ Drag-Her, Smashbird, Nigel Smashberry, chili beans, Smash Money, WyldeSyde, Gnarley Carbsmashian, Regrets, Smash Me Ousside, The Monster Smash, Regrets and Smashsquatch.
It’s hard to figure out who holds the decisive edge in this one. Whoever claims the duke will have certainly earned their victory.
The exact can be said by the pair of factions that seek to claim their first win of the season.
Despite their most-recent 13-point setback, the M-80s played a much stronger game overall compared to their December 2018 season opener, so optimism is at stronger levels. L’Oakey Doki, Lucy Fir, Owl Wing It!, Kamp Kwitcherbitchin will jam while blockers Merit Badger, Trampfire, Slipknot, Curl Scout, Slam Shakusky, S’More Cowbell and Wood Bang construct the foundation.
The Stunts also have high hopes on their end. Jammers Scarrie Fisher, Zoe Hell and Toni Smaxton will be supported by blockers Reese Wither(n’ Die) Spoon, Kill-ya Knightly, Rhonda Lousey, Ginger Assassin, Sir Ian McKillin’, Fast ‘n’ Lucy Liu, Nunchucks Norris and Glenn Close But No Cigar. Veteran LuxFurious returns full-time to the line-up to give a blocking boost.
At the end of ARCH’s six-event regular season in April, the two teams that possess the highest winning percentage will compete for the League’s trophy later that month.
