The Battle for St. Louis

While the St. Louis Blues sit out another Stanley Cup Final (they're pacing themselves!), another league of heavy-hitting skaters circle each other warily in the Battle for St. Louis. Today at 6:30 p.m. at Chaifetz Arena (1 South Compton Avenue; 314-977-5000 or www.thechaifetzarena.com), the Stunt Devils and the Smashinistas duke it out for the Arch Rival Roller Girls League Championships. This being an intra-league championship, these two teams know each other's strengths and weaknesses. Expect a close bout with no love lost -- or at least not until it's all over. Tickets are $12 to $25, and the opening match features the two top men's teams -- Riverfront Crimes and South Grand Slammers -- fighting for the GateKeepers Roller Derby league championship.
