The L.A. Derby Dolls introduced a new roller derby team called the Varsity Brawlers to another packed house at the Doll Factory on Saturday night. The new kids in town were welcomed opponents for the battered Fight Crew, who have suffered through a disappointing season plagued by losses and injuries. Fight Crew vented their pent up frustrations by running up the score early and soundly thrashing the Brawlers.

The Varsity Brawlers debut was also the inaugural game for a many of their team members, meaning lots of falling and collisions, which are always entertaining no matter what the score is. You can bet your Hot Dog on a Stick that nobody left early and the place was as rowdy as ever.
