The Cape Girardeau Roller Girls boast a 3-2 record this season and are looking to pick up win number 4 when they take on the COMO Derby Dames Saturday, July 12th at the A. C. Brase Arena.
The doors of the A. C. Brase Arena will open at 5 and the bout will begin at 6; a co-ed expo game will follow immediately after with a short break between. Fans will be able to meet and take pictures with their favorite roller girls between games.
A portion of the proceeds from each home bout are donated to charities here in Southeast Missouri.

During Cape Girardeau Roller Girl's last bout the team gave a check for $450 to the Watkins Wildlife Rehabilitation and a portion of the proceeds from that are bout going to the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri. The Roller Girls are excited to announce this bout's proceeds will benefit the Girl Scouts of Southeast Missouri.
