Sunday, August 23 Rat City Rollergirls played host in Shoreline to the Canadian "Terminal City Rollergirls".

I've written about local events for more than a year, but have never seen this home team deliver such a decisive victory before.

The jammers broke out consistently early from the pack and picked up stunning support from their team mates. When the Canadians had a chance to score, the Rat City defenders were strong, focused and fearless.

In the first bout Rat City "Rain of Terror" set the pace against "Terminal City B" and ended with a win of 292 to 114. Rat City All Stars picked up on that momentum and delivered their own home town crowd a 253 to 72 victory.
