Here it is folks – the last game of the season for Northland Nightmares – a mixed game of players from our league and across NZ plus the added bonus of seeing our littlest terrors The Hell Razors (plus invited guests) take to the track. All proceeds of this bout will go to Rape Crisis Whangarei, we will also be collecting on the night for this brilliant cause close to our hearts, we believe in empowering women to overcome all obstacles and Rape Crisis do an amazing job of helping those in the direst of needs.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our fans for supporting us this year – there have been some big changes in the league and we are humbled by your continued faith in us, we also couldn’t do it without help from Dominos Pizza, ASB Stadium, Fast Signz, Wards Music, Steve Jennens Engineering, Fizeo Works, Oxford Trust, Pub Charity, Jesse Rose, Stil Vodka plus all our helpers, friends and family.
Look for us out and about in Whangarei during the summer months, we will be doing a number of outdoor displays and parades including the Whangarei City parade on 1st November.
Hells Wives took on Dangerous Curves last Saturday night in front of a packed stand at ASB Stadium, and the girlz did not disappoint their home fans! It was a strongly fought bout with some very solid walls on both sides, but Hells Wives had the edge with a bigger bench and some fine jamming by Silence, Axl Slash-R and Tan-ya Hyde, and the points soon racked up!
The comments from our crowd was that it was a great game to watch – we’re really noticing that roller derby is starting to attract a growing fanbase here in Whangarei!
Many thanks to Mount Milita Derby Crew for making the trip up, and as always a huge thank you to our refs, NSO’s, volunteers, family, friends and fans 😀

Saturday 4th of May kicked off Northland Nightmares Roller Girlz 2013 season and it was an action-packed evening all the way!
First up Northland Nightmares Derby Bratz held a demo game, with Team Yellow taking the game over Team Purple 97 points to 53. The Bratz had an awesome bout and they certainly showed some pretty damn fine derby skills out there!
Then May Mayhem ruled as the advanced players took the track. By half time Team Blood had a substantial lead, but Team Bruise pulled it back in the second half, and after a nail-biting final jam the final score as 162-160!
It was a hard fought, exhausting game with both teams playing with three blockers which opened up the game and made it a lot faster and easier for the jammers to break through…maybe Roller Derby needs to consider this as an option in future…?
A great opening bout and as always we couldn’t have done it without our amazing refs, NSO’s, volunteers, fans, friends and family – you are the bomb!
Next up it’s Hells Wives vs Mount Militia Derby Crew’s Dangerous Curves on the 29th of June! We can’t wait to play together as a team again – let’s hope it’s a repeat of last time we met Dangerous Curves and took out the win!
What a fantastic day our charity event Storm in a D-Cup was on the 27th of October, raising money for The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation!

Then it was the main event, our finale starring our advanced players and special guests from Hibiscus Coast Rollers as teams Bazooka Bombers vs Rack Attack!
It was an exciting, exhausting (for some!) and memorable day and we were very proud to raise money for this amazing cause. A HUGE thanks to our sponsors, those who made donations and as always to our refs, NSOs, volunteers, family and friends; we couldn’t of done it without ya!
Now onto our next event, the Kamo Christmas Parade on the 24th of November!
