Saturday was a double-header match and like all of their home games they donated a portion of the proceeds to charity.

For Saturday night’s match they donated to the Cumberland County Animal Shelter.

One of Fayetteville’s team members is deaf and the team has a special way to communicate with her.

In fact, they told fans to cheer for her by making “spirit fingers.”

“All of our games are important because it’s a chance for us to grow as a league in the Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association as well as supporting local charity,” said Erin “Whiskers” Murphy, a Rouge Roller Girl.

“Every bout that we have supports a local charity and we donate a portion of the proceeds to that charity,” she added.

Their next event is a match against the Cape Fear All Stars July 9.
