November 13th, 2011: Providence,RI- Mob Squad beat the Rats 163 to 130 on Saturday. This means The Mob Squad will take on the Old Money Honeys for the Championships on 12/3.

Fresh from victory: The Mob Squad prepares for the Sakonnet River Roller Rats
October 10th, 2011: Providence,RI- In their knockout performance against the Old Money Honey’s on October 8th, (161 to 108) Baby Fighterfly’s Mob Squad is looking to take down the Sakonnet River Roller Rats in the last game before the championships. November 12th’s bout will determine which two teams will go to the home team championships on December 3rd. Coach Crash Daily made sure the Mob Squad was ready for the Honeys on October 8th, and we are sure this next game against the Rats will be no different. The Rats will be defending their championship title with heavy hitters like Hot Sauce and Shamblock, new Rats like Buzz AllDread and Cheese Louise, and crowd favorites Craisy Dukes and Trophy Knife.
The Mob Squad returns to take on last month’s champion Honeys
October 7th, 2011 Providence, RI- If you think PRD’s season opener was intense, just wait until you see what’s in store for October. In their first appearance since Fall 2010, the Mob Squad, led by Boss Baby Fighterfly, is dominating street talk in the Providence underworld. Thug recruits War n’ Pieces, Tiger Bomb, Howlin’ Havoc, and Citizen Toxie are raring to get a piece of the action. Transfer skaters Ruca A. Salt and Sweet Tease are revealing last year’s street rat and pearly white personas as undercover assignments, and now they’re here to show their true colors: black and gold.
The Old Money Honeys will also be taking a break from their demanding tennis and cocktail schedule to show the Mob what Daddy’s money can buy: a whole lotta fierce. They’re riding high off their recent defeat of the Sakonnet River Roller Rats, and veteran skaters Fo Shizzy Borden, Jetta von Diesel, and Shelby Bruisin’ are ready to put their money where their mouthguard is.
During the bout, PRD’s 50/50 charity raffle will be raising money for an organization close to our hearts: The Girl Scouts of Rhode Island. Then, at halftime, get your groove on with the Run for Covers and their awesome renditions of 80’s-Today hits.
After the last whistle is blown, derby girls know how to leave it all on the track and party down. Join skaters and fellow fans at Providence Social Club (71 Richmond Street, Providence, RI; above club Hell at what used to be Jerky’s) after the bout, featuring PRD’s favorite: Karaoke with
Big Bill Big Brett (temporarily taking Bill’s place).
