As a sport, Roller derby continues to grow by leaps, bounds, sharp elbows and bruised knees. This past Wednesday, in Las Vegas, the first ever East vs. West Roller Derby All-Star Game was held at RollerCon 2014 and it more than lived up to the hype.

2014 Roller Derby All-Star Game rosters

Derby legends Bonnie Thunders and Suzy Hotrod led an East squad which included five players (and two alternates) from Gotham Girls Roller Derby. Three B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls were playing for the West — Demanda Riot, Amanda Jamitinya, and Lulu Lockjaw.

In the end, the East proved too much for the West, winning a very physical, fast-paced bout 303-244.
