An upcoming match for the Crude City Roller Derby's Third Coast Offenders has been cancelled, league officials confirmed on Monday.
The Third Coast Offenders were scheduled to face the Cen-Tex Sirens of Waco on May 8, but the Sirens cancelled their match last week, said league vice-president Zee Kelly, who is a jammer for the Third Coast Offenders skating under the name Lit Miss Psychlone.
"We apologize to our fans. We're not happy about having to cancel," she said. "We did try to get something together for our fans, but it didn't happen. We're going to come back with a vengeance in June, though."
The team is coming off a 243-77 blowout win April 10 over the Route 66 Rollergirls from Amarillo. They are 1-1 on the season.
The team held an exhibition season last year in which they went undefeated.
Their next bout will be May 15 on the road against the Bayour City Bosses of Houston. The Third Coast Offenders will be back at home June 12 to face the Houston Roller Derby.
All future matches will take place in the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds' Exhibit Hall A, which recently had a number of improvements completed to expand its use.
Those include the installation of air conditioning and bleachers.
Kelly said the league is also still actively searching for announcers, volunteers and skaters.
Anyone interested in any of the listed positions should visit the league's Web site at www.ccrollerderby.com, or send an email to email@example.com.
The team will make up the cancelled match in October, Kelly said.
