Festival City Rollergirls hosted its first-ever bout in front of a hometown crowd on Saturday evening at the Stratford Rotary Complex.
Its low-impact team Stratford LOCO faced off against Kitchener LOCO, with the home squad winning the bout 214-152.
Along with the LOCO team, Festival City Rollergirls has introduced a new full-contact team, The Decapulettes, and will be launching a Stratford Junior Roller Derby this fall for girls ages nine to 17.
Roller derby is one of the fastest growing women's sports in the world.
