CORNWALL, Ontario -
South Stormont is about to get a taste of the fastest growing all-women's sport in the world when Cornwall’s sisterhood on wheels hits the Long Sault Arena Saturday.

The Seaway Roller Derby Girls (SRDGs) at their annual 'Black & White' interleague scrimmage at St. Lawrence College.

The Seaway Roller Derby Girls (SRDG) will be squaring off against the Valley Valkyries (Renfrew County Roller Derby) on May 31 at the Long Sault Arena.

Tickets are $10 and the game starts at 7 p.m.

The Valley Valkyries are fresh on the derby scene, but it's not their first encounter with the Cornwall Power Dames, SRDG's inaugural team.

"They are a new and upcoming team in the derby world," said Jeff Brown, also known as Whitesnake, the coach of SRDG. "We beat them in September, they will be looking for retribution."

The Power Dames smashed the Kahnawake Wagon Burners on April 19 at the Anowarakowa Arena on Cornwall Island.

The season opener was a hard fought battle, but the Power Dames more than doubled the Wagon Burners with a final score of 262-109.

The league is currently at 25 members including players, referees, and NSOs (non-skating officials).

"We are always looking for players, referrees, and volunteers to help our league at our games, fundraisers, and events," said Brown. "Come join in on the hype. This is roller derby!"
