Buffalo’s Lake Effect Furies, the ‘A’ travel team for the Queen City Roller Girls, kick off their 2016 season this Sunday at RiverWorks against familiar rivals Rochester (Roc City Roc Stars). The Furies, who finished the 2015 season with their first ever Division 1 Playoff appearance in Omaha, NE, are looking to get back to playoffs and represent Buffalo on a global stage.
Furies’ captain and longtime league veteran Tabrina Schreier is excited to refocus for the 2016 season, “The Furies are looking to return with most of our core. We have added a couple new faces who will strengthen us and we’re going to have to fight for every ranking point this year to get back into D1. We had a couple of weeks off to heal physically and mentally prepare. Now we work to tighten up our defense and improve our offense. Personally I can’t wait to see how we do this season because we improve every time we practice, watch game footage or just hang out together.”
The game will be a double header with the Furies B team, the Subzero Sirens, playing the Roc City B Sides following the Furies’ bout, which means that fans will be treated to two bouts for the price of one. Tickets are already going fast with front row tickets and half of VIP tables already sold out.
Doors will open at 1:00pm on Sunday, March 6th at RiverWorks with first whistle at 2pm.
