The photographer says: North Star Roller Girls league action from January 31, 2009. League website is here.

The Banger Sisters vs Delta Delta Di
The Kilmore Girls vs The Violent Femmes

Both bouts were very fast, punishing, with close scores. Excitement was so high that by the end of the night everyone - teams, fans and photographers - was all worn out!

The theme of the night was "Sci-Fly," and (as you will see from some photos) the event was attended by members of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion, Central Garrison - a local Star Wars re-enactor group whose costumes are pretty darn real! (They're just as amazing when you get up close.)
