After 5 whole years of grit and determination, the St. Louis #GateKeepers have finally got their hands on a title to add to their #roller derby legacy.
After being behind on the scoreboard only once in the gold medal game, the Gatekeepers played well.
The raucous crowd of 800 at Queeny Park witnessed the culmination of a three-game tourney sweep that resulted in the GateKeepers’ first-ever international title.
“I’m really stoked,” said St. Louis blocker Double Excel. “All the support that came through for us and the cheering and the fans, it was truly a factor. We wanted to win it for them just as much as we wanted to win it for ourselves. They’ve been through thick and thin with us and we just couldn’t be happier than to bring home the cup in front of them.”
