Nightmares win!

Terrace's roller derby team beats Quesnel on the road – and prepares for a rematch here at home May 9

THAT’s North Coast Nightmares head coach Skimo

A trip to face the Gold Pain City roller derby team in Quesnel April 9 resulted in a win for the North Coast Nightmares team, the second time this season the teams have faced each other and the first time in three years the Nightmares have won.

With a small roster of nine players, team co-captain Marge Sins Some (Jessica Hogg) credited a high endurance and a gruelling training schedule.

“Our players have been training on skates at least three times a week and it’s led to some big improvements in our game,” she said.

The first half of the bout was fairly tight with a halftime score of Nightmares, 60 vs. Quesnel, 43.

Terrace came back from halftime amped up and ready to win.

“The team worked together so well, it was noticed by the opposition,” said head coach Skimo (Chris Thomas). “This win was long hoped for and well-deserved.”

The final score of the match was Nightmares 158 and Gold Pain 110.

This victory boosts  the Nightmares to a mere five spots behind Quesnel’s Gold Pain City, and both teams face off again in Terrace on May 9.

It’s being billed as “Who’s Your Momma? The Sequel.”

“Our next goal is to win at home,” said Skimo. “Games against Quesnel have always been great, and this will be no exception.”

Nightmares’ home games have brought in audiences of 1,000-plus people and the team is grateful for the support.

“Terrace now has a reputation in the roller derby community of throwing a great bout, with loud and enthusiastic fans, and an awesome after-party,” says Marge Sins Some.

Fans are encouraged to wear red and be loud, very loud.
