Breaking News: Beast of the East Results!

Posted by hooligal on April 20, 2008

From Derbyluv.com :

The BEAST. OF. The. EAST!

First off, kudos to MTLRD for pulling this event together and setting up this tournament. What a derby crash course for those that aren’t familiar with it, what a challenge for the newer teams, and what a chance to show off for the established teams.

Here’s a breakdown – well as much as I caught(I was stuck working the bar longer than my planned shift), but I will try to get the proper results and scores from our Head Ref later…

Steel Town Tank Girls (W) vs Smoke City Betties (L)
La Racaille (W) vs The Bytown Blackhearts (L)
Death Row Dames (L) vs Devil Dollies (W)
Steel Town Tank Girls (L) vs La Racaille (W)
ToRD D-VAS (L) vs MTLRD Les Contrabanditas (W)
Semi-Final 1: Les Contrabanditas (L) vs La Racaille (W)

ToRD Gore Gore Rollergirls (L) vs Hamilton Harlots (W)
Bay Street Brusies (W) vs Thames Fatales (L)
London Thrashers (L) vs ToRD Chicks Ahoy (W)
Death Track Dolls (L) vs Les Filles du Roi (W)
Chicks Ahoy (L) vs Les Filles du Roi (W)
Hamilton Harlots (W) vs Bay Street Bruisers (L)
Semi-Final 2: Hamilton Harlots (W) vs Les Filles du Roi (L)

Beast of the East: Hamilton Harlots

Special nods go out to the London Thrashers, Death Row Dames, and the Thames Fatales. This was one of the first games for some of these teams, and kudos to them for working hard and doing ther best. London played with 7 players against a full bench of Chicks Ahoy, and that was awesome.

Other special notes, the teams to beat will obviously be the Hamilton Harlots, Les Filles du Roi, and a runaway win in their second appearance in MTL La Racaille. Iron Wrench, jammer and captain of La Racaille created a buzz amongst the crowd with her speed and natural agility. Hamilton Harlots, though, deserved the Beast of the East title, they skated tight, fast, and smart. Since I’m moving to Hamilton in a couple of weeks, my response was, ” I wanna grow up to be a Harlot someday.”

Okay then, it was a long day and a crazy after party, so I will see about getting those scores. In the meantime, you can check out all these teams online for news on their season openers.
Derby Luv to ya!

Montreal Roller Derby Unleashes the Beast of the East

Montreal, QC – Montreal Roller Derby (MTLRD) is excited to launch
their second season with the unleashing of the Beast of the East on
April 19th, 2008. The Beast of the East is a day long, single-
elimination tournament, and the first ever Eastern Canadian Roller
Derby tournament with 16 teams from Canada and the United States.This
tournament was created with hopes of strengthening the sport of
roller derby in the region, showcasing the skills of upcoming roller
derby talent, and to see whom will reign as the 2008 Beast of
the East.

MTLRD, a women’s amateur flat-track roller derby league, was
established in 2006 and has since grown to a league with over fifty
women, three teams, and one traveling team.MTLRD strives to promote
and foster the sport of roller derby, and help it evolve throughout
the current roller derby explosion of leagues all around the world. A
favourite in the local and national media, these ladies are ready to
start off their second season with a bang. Of course, being the DIY
and aggressive ladies that they are, the second season will be even
bigger and better, with faster skating, stronger whips, harder hits,
and bigger crashes.

MTLRD and the Montreal Underground Film Festival (MUFF) will kick of
the Beast with a screening of the film “Hell on Wheels” Friday, April
18th at Les Saints on 30 Rue Sainte Catherine Ouest, 10pm. Salt Lake
City Weekly raves that, “Hell on Wheels is a killer documentary about
the Austin all-women’s roller-derby leagues that inadvertently
launched a worldwide revival of the sport.” The film had its world
premier in 2007 at South by Southwest with the second largest
audience at the festival, and since has screened upwards of twenty
film festivals with packed audiences every time. MTLRD and MUFF are
thrilled to be presenting such an inspiring film to a new audience.

The Beast of the East roller derby action will go from 10 am to 10 pm
on Saturday April 19th at Arena St Louis, 5633 Rue Saint Dominique.
This will be the event of the season,a roller derby milestone, and
one heck of a good time. For more information about the
Beast of the East, Montreal Roller Derby, or the sport of roller
derby, please visit http://www.mtlrollerderby. com. Don’t forget to check out
one of MTLRD’s legendary after-parties
following the games Saturday night at Bar Syndrome, 5777 Boul. St

Montreal Roller Derby présente The Beast of the East

Montréal, QC – La ligue de roller derby de Montréal (MTLRD) est
heureuse de lancer sa deuxième saison en déchaînant la « bête de
l’Est » le 19 avril 2008. The Beast of the East est un tournoi à
élimination simple d’une journée complète. C’est également le tout
premier tournoi de roller derby de l’est canadien comportant seize
équipes du Canada et des États-Unis. L’événement a été créé dans
l’espoir de renforcir ce sport dans la région, de présenter les
nouveaux talents du roller derby et de découvrir l’équipe qui régnera
en tant que « Bête de l’Est » en 2008.

MTLRD est une ligue amateure de roller derby féminin sur piste à
plat. Elle a été créée en 2006 et inclut désormais une cinquantaine
de femmes, trois équipes et une équipe de route. MTLRD vise à
promouvoir le roller derby et encourager son évolution au sein de la
prolification des nouvelles ligues à travers le monde. Très
appréciées des médias locaux et nationaux, ces demoiselles sont fin
prêtes pour leur deuxième saison. Avec ces femmes
aggressives à l’esprit DIY, on peut s’attendre à une meilleure
seconde saison, plus rapide,plus technique avec des coups plus forts
et des collisions encore plus percutantes que
l’année précédente.

MTLRD et le festival de films underground de Montréal (MUFF)
présenteront le film « Hell on Wheels » en introduction au tournoi et
ce, le vendredi 18 avril, 22h à la salle Les Saints
située au 30 Sainte-Catherine Ouest. Le journal Salt Lake City Weekly
affirme que « “Hell on Wheels” est un documentaire fantastique à
propos des ligues de roller derby féminin d’Austin qui ont par
inadvertance lancé une nouvelle vague internationale de roller
derby. » La première mondiale du film a eu lieu en 2007 au festival
South by Southwest devant le deuxième plus grand public de
l’événement. Depuis, il a été présenté devant des salles combles dans
plus de vingt festivals de films. MTLRD et MUFF sont très heureux de
présenter ce film inspirant à de nouveaux spectateurs.

Le tournoi The Beast of the East se tiendra de 10h à 22h le samedi 19
avril à l’aréna Saint-Louis au 5633 Saint-Dominique. Ce sera un
événement marquant pour la saison et le roller derby en général ainsi
qu’une occasion d’avoir beaucoup de plaisir. Pour de plus amples
informations à propos du Beast of the East, de Montreal Roller Derby
ou du roller derby en général, nous vous invitons à visiter le
http://www.mtlrollerderby. com. N’oubliez surtout pas
de venir faire un tour à une des légendaires célébrations post-match
de MTLRD en vous présentant au Bar le Syndrome au 5777 Boulevard
Saint-Laurent. Au plaisir de vous voir sur la piste !
