First of all, Montreal Roller Derby was EXTREMELY friendly, accommodating, and welcoming from the get go. Our volunteers were comped, they had our merch table ready to go, and they hooked us up in the locker room. I wasn't playing on this roster, so I worked the merch table to Escargot (she rocks).

Before the start of the second half, Knockout Kid got a special birthday serenade from Montreal's announcer Plastik Patrik. Patrik and Miss Ida did a fine job announcing during the bout - Patrik in French and Ida in English.
This was a really exciting game to watch, especially when the Hellions began to close the gap in the second period. In the end, we had a bit of trouble staying out of the penalty box, and with Montreal holding strong, we ended the bout with a score of 134 Montreal - 112 Hellions.
Seriously, if your league has the resources (we're lucky enough with our location being just 3.5 hours south) to get up to Montreal to play this team on their home turf, you need to make the trip. The Hellions had a wonderful time in the city, at the bout, and hanging with these fun-lovin' derby girls. Thanks Montreal!
