The Queen City Roller Girls will kick-off 2016, and their 10th season, at 2 p.m. Saturday inside RiverWorks, 359 Ganson St., Buffalo. The season opener pairs home teams the Suicidal Saucies and the Devil Dollies. Doors will open at 1 p.m. with first whistle at 2 p.m.

With a redraft from last year, these teams feature only a handful of returning skaters. This bout will be the first for 14 rookie skaters. 

For the first year since 2011, there will be a new champion at the end of the season, as the Knockouts retired. No one knows how these teams will mesh and find a rhythm, so fans are excited to see how this will play out.

The skater-owned and -operated league consists of three home teams and a travel team representing the Buffalo area in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (the Lake Effect Furies), a travel B team and a junior league.

Since its inception, the Queen City Roller Girls' mission has always been to provide opportunities for athleticism, camaraderie and self-expression.
