It’s the 2014 Toronto Roller Derby Battle for the Boot Semi-Final! After a hard-fought regular season, we’ve finally arrived at the playoffs! The two teams with the most all-time titles (3 apiece), the Chicks Ahoy! and the Gore-Gore Rollergirls, take the track at 7pm for the right to move on to the final, and try to add to their totals. When they met earlier this season the Gores came out on top 218-157, but that was way back in January. Both teams have trained hard all summer long and it’s all for grabs! The Gores have never missed the Battle for the Boot Playoffs, and the Chicks return after a 1-year absence. First whistle goes at 7pm.
First up at 5, the DVAS are hosting the South Simcoe Rebel Rollers from Barrie, ON. Get there early to get a comfortable spot in the bleachers, or bring a chair for trackside viewing in the suicide seats! Doors open at 4pm.
Admission at the door at The Bunker will be $18.00, but $12.00 Advance Tickets are now available online on Brown Paper Tickets, and old-fashioned paper tickets (also $12.00) are available at the following outlets:
Purple Purl – 1162 Queen Street E

Next up for ToRD: the 2014 Battle for the Boot Championship! Saturday October 18, the winner of the Semi-Final will face the Death Track Dolls at 7pm. Keep your eyes peeled for event details, you won’t want to miss that one!
