Our very own Zisa Spires, Scary Ann, and Gnarly Quinn went to Kansas City, MO to guest skate for the Benton County Derby Dames. They played Co-ed against the Fountain City Roller Derby team The Usual Suspects. Zisa has played Co-ed before, but Scary Ann and Gnarly Quinn tried something new this past weekend. “Playing against boys was a lot of fun! The girls hit harder, but the boys were more calculated with their hits,” said Scary Ann. Gnarly had a blast and stated, “I was super anxious since it was only my third bout. I loved it! Skating with another team motivated me to take some of what I learned and bring it back to practice.”

Our first home bout of the season was challenging the Benton County Derby Dames to a rematch! We played in Skate Quest’s facility in Montgomery City, MO. The facility was gorgeous and the owners were VERY hospitable for the Fury team. The theme was Harry Potter and it was a magical night for everyone. The whole facility was decorated, many themed items were for sale, and there was a costume contest. Many people dressed in theme, even a the skaters.
The first half of the bout both teams were neck and neck, but Benton pulled through. Benton continue to reign as champions against Fury with the final score 61 to 38. Kittie KaPow and Gnarly Quinn graciously took the MVP awards. They fought hard and strong! Check out the pictures on the Pics tab. Our very own Brutalia took the amazing shots!

Fury traveled to Arkansas for their first bout against the Benton County Derby Dames for the 2017 season. It was a six hour drive for the team, but it gave the teammates a chance to bond further with each other. Benton defeated Fury, but each player had a blast playing with their sister league. It was very enjoyable to watch and the two leagues played for fun, not for a title. The MVP Blocker award went to Fury’s Scary Ann. A first time bouter, Pain Tara, said, “This was my first bout and it taught me what great camaraderie there is among skaters. Even though I started the bout terrified, I ended it having a great time and thrilled to have the opportunity to meet all of them!”
The first bout of the season was with the undefeated Missouri River Rollers in Atchison, KS. Fury held their own throughout the entire bout. Sadly, Fury fell to the Missouri River Rollers with a score of 97 to 57. It was a fast paced game from the start. One of our seasoned vets, Hipsy Gypsy, stated, “I had a good time and learned a lot!” Fury is hoping to fight for the big W in the near future.
Our very own Scary Ann and Kittie KaPow received the MVP awards for the game. It was Kittie’s first bout as a new derby member and she did a fantastic job holding her own against very experienced players.
Our very own veteran skaters, Zisa Spires and Scary Ann, were asked to guest skate with the Benton County Derby Dames against the newly formed Missouri River Rollers. Scary excitedly stated, “It was wonderful to skate with our sister league. I learned so much from both teams and I cannot wait until our first bout of the season.” Unfortunately, Benton fell to the Missouri River Rollers. Both teams had a blast and played their hearts out.

FIRST BOUT OF 2017!!!
The league took on the Leflore County Maidens of Mayhem at their home venue in Oklahoma. Things started off rough for fury with massive penalties. The Maidens capitalized on this and making a nice point lead for themselves. During halftime Fury gained composer and worked out a great game plan. The second half went much better for Fury, but they still fell behind to the Maidens. Overall, the bout went very well and everyone had a lot of fun.
The ladies of Fury took on Benton County Derby Dames again, only this time it was at our home advantage. The floor inside the venue was VERY slick and both teams had to quickly adjust in order to keep wheels on the floor. It made for bigger wipeouts and girls being thrown across the track. Again, Benton took an early lead before the Fury could get their stride and start scoring consistent points. Both teams fought hard to score points and to stay upright on the polished concrete floor. It was a very exciting game nonetheless and the league appreciates Benton for making the trip for the bout. Don’t forget to check out the Pics tab on the site for the awesome pictures of the bout.
The ferocious Fury ladies took on Benton County Derby Dames on May 14th. Things started off rough for Fury and the Benton County ladies definitely were able to take full advantage of our many inexperienced skaters. Our ladies tried hard as hell and did manage to get things together in the second half. Unfortunately, it the point deficit was very high. Fury is looking to redeem themselves at the next bout on June 25th when they take on Benton County Derby Dames again at Lost Valley Lake Resort. Come to the bout and see all the action!
It was an action-packed bout from the beginning, but the ladies of Black Snack beat out the FURY ladies with a score of 124 to 111. Black Snake took an early lead in the beginning of the first quarter and Fury had a difficult time making up the points. Both teams were firing on all cylinders, which gave the crowd an awesome game to watch.
This was the first time that a roller derby event was held at the beautiful Lost Valley Lake Resort. It was also the first 2016 home bout hosted by Fury. Everything went perfect and the bout ran smooth as silk. The league would like to thank all those involved that made this bout a wonderful success! As always, pictures can be found on this website under the Pics tab.
Looks like the ladies of FURY are going to take on the ladies of BLACK SNAKE roller girls. Come join us!
The Fury ladies, plus a few visiting skaters from Black Snake, took on a mash-up team consisting of girls from the Danger Dolls and Jesse Jane’s in St. Joseph, MO.
Fury had a wonderful start to the bout by ending the 1st quarter ahead with 25 points and the Dolls/Jane’s slightly trailing with 19 points.
Fury clung to their lead by the end of the half with 48 points and the Dolls/Jane’s very close behind with 45 points.
The Dolls/Jane’s came back from the deficit and went on a scoring spree in the final quarter to take the lead. Fury fell to the Dolls/Jane’s with a final score of 97 to 79.
Both teams played hard as hell and put up a fantastic fight. It was a nail biting game until the last whistle was blown.
Each skater played beautifully and had a fantastic time.
Thankfully no injuries to report on either team’s roster. The Fury league would like to thank the Black Snake Roller Girls for the opportunity to bout against them. The league looks forward to challenging them again in our next home bout. Check back soon for details. Don’t forget to click on the Pics tab for bout pictures.
On March 19th a bunch of the Fury ladies were invited to participate in a mixer event located in St. Jo Missouri. A mixer consists of women from different leagues playing together for increased experience and camaraderie. For the majority of these girls, this will be their first ever experience bouting by the M.A.D.E. ruleset. To say that they were excited would be downplaying their reactions to being invited to such an event. Our league is very happy that St. Jo invited the ladies for this exhibition mixer bout. The entire team has been practicing and training hard all Winter for the FURY season to kick off. Feel free to join us at the St. Jo Civic Arena from 6pm to 9pm!!!
Two Fury ladies were specially requested to play as guests on inner league teams for the Black Snake Roller Girls.
Zisa Spires and K.O. RO both took the invite and drove the four hours to ST Joseph Mo.
Both girls normally play on the same team, but Zisa played with the Jessie Janes and RO played with the Venomous Vixens. The bout was a close one throughout the entire game. When the regulation timer stopped both teams were tied! It came down to a vicious sudden death as one jam takes all. The Jessie Janes got their Jammer out first, but the Vixens Jammer squeaked by on the inside turn and took lead Jammer. Having full control of the Jam she took a point and hastily called off the jam. An exciting end to a bout to say the least. Check out the pictures of the bout under the Pics tab.
Franklin County Fury is hard at work preparing for the upcoming season.
We practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week.
Our first bout is in March and it is an away game.
