Swift Current Redneck Betties vs Brandon Scarlet Fever, June 23, 2018

Written by 

The Swift Current Redneck Betties hosted the Scarlet Fever roller derby team from Brandon, Manitoba at the Innovation Credit Union iPlex, June 23. The two teams engaged in a hard hitting game, but the fast-moving Redneck Betties jammers scored points at a greater rate to secure a 230-91 win for the home team. Swift Current wrestler Aleah Nickel, who will be competing for Team Canada at the world championships in Croatia in early July, attended the roller derby. In the spirit of supporting women in sport, the South West Saskatchewan Roller Derby Association donated the 50/50 proceeds from the game to Nickel to assist her with travel costs. The Redneck Betties will play their next home game against the Weyburn Strait Jackets on Sept. 15.
