Roller girls close out home schedule

hcrg_league_logo_high-298x300It’s hard to believe, but the eighth season of home games for the Hammer City Roller Girls is rolling to a close.

The HCRG will conclude their home flat track schedule with a doubleheader on Saturday (Aug. 17) with the Hammer City’s Eh! Team and Harlots in action.

In the first bout at 6 p.m., the Eh! Team charges helmet-first into battle with the Border City Brawlers All-Stars of Windsor. Since the Eh! Team will be hungry for its fourth win in a row, the hosts promise big hits and even bigger thrills when the roller warriors hits the track.

The second bout at 8 p.m. will feature the Harlots going against long-time friends – but rivals – the Toronto Roller Derby’s Chicks Ahoy!

The twin bill is set for the J.L. Grightmire Arena, 35 Market Street South in Dundas. Doors open at 5 p.m. Spectators are encouraged to bring a chair for trackside seating. The teams remind fans that the Dundas Cactus Fest is also happening this weekend, so allow for extra time to get to the arena.
