The Hellions of Troy and the Albany All Stars will renew their roller derby rivalry July 8 at the Rollarama. Tickets are $12 at the door / $3 for kids 12 and under (and $10 if you buy 'em ahead of time from a skater).

This is the second year in a row the two local roller derbies will face off with each other, following last year's showdown at the TU Center. (The rivalry heads to the Rollarama because it's a home game for the Hellions.) Game blurbage:

This will be a pivotal and competitive match; the Hellions took the title last year, but the All Stars have been gearing up and hoping for victory. Both teams have focused on increasing skill and teamwork this season; according to the latest rankings from the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, the Hellions are ranked 204, and the All Stars are ranked 255.

The first whistle on July 8 is at 8 pm.
