The Harbor City Roller Dames, the hometown havoc-on-wheels, closes out its flat track season with a doubleheader Saturday at Pioneer Hall.

Bout one: Shipwreckers versus Iron Range Maidens Attackonites; Bout two: Nautikills versus the North Star Supernovas.

For the uninitiated, expect to see whizzing jammers, athletic hits, wicked wipe outs and lots of strategizing going on beneath those helmets. It’s all done with a touch of humor from the emcee and plenty of passion on the track.

This is the finale competition of the Dames’ fourth season.
