Description

It’s been 784 days since Juneau last saw live roller derby on home turf, but who’s counting, right? Well, Just Julie (Sanbei) is.

The last game was in February of 2015: “Legiskative Session.” Since then, the flooring at Centennial Hall suffered water damage, leaving the Juneau Roller Girls no place to hold a game during the league’s regular winter season. Friday night’s game was a non-WFTDA sanctioned co-ed mash-up held at Treadwell Arena, pitting teammate against teammate — as well as sister against sister and girlfriend against boyfriend. The mother and son duo, Suhspence (Spencer Stratton) and Karma Krusher (Kerri Tanner), got to play on the same team.
