The Penticton Pistoleras lost a hard fought game against Public Frenemy of Vancouver

The Penticton Pistoleras lost a hard fought game against Public Frenemy of Vancouver with a final score of 137 to 152.

The Pistoleras said the Midsummer Nights Jam at the Summerland Arena was a great way to end the season. The night of nail-biting roller derby action saw the strong Public Frenemy give the Pistoleras their closest bout of the season, breaking their three-game winning streak.

Heavy hitting and strong jamming kept the crowd entertained while the two teams battled it out on the track. Public Frenemy was in the lead by 27 points at the half, but the home team fought hard to narrow the gap in the second.

Two big jams by Onya Knees (Meghan O’Driscoll) and Crasher In The Thigh (Glory MacIntyre) gave the Pistoleras the lead they were fighting for. Just as it was in their grasp, the Pistoleras took a couple of penalties giving Public Frenemy the opportunity to push forward for the win.

“The Pistoleras would like to give a big thank you to Public Frenemy for helping us deliver a great night of derby as well as a special thanks and appreciation to all the ref’s and NSO’s, fans sponsors and volunteers who helped make it such a successful night and 2014 season,” said Colleen Milligan, media relations.

The Pistoleras are part of the South Okanagan Roller Derby Association and have just completed their third season. They will continue training over the winter to return next year and encourage anyone interested in joining as a skater or ref to get in touch and be part of the fun.
