The NWO Wolfpack suffered their first loss of the roller derby season, falling 147-116 to the Okanagan-Shuswap All-Stars.

The bout was held last Saturday at the Hope Arena.

In a tight defensive struggle, jammers from both sides had trouble breaking through the blockers to score points.

The outcome was still very much in doubt at half-time.

NWO’s next event is May 24, an event they’re calling ‘Little Dead Riding Hood.’

The doors at the Landing Sports Centre swing open at 4 p.m., with action starting at 5 p.m.

The junior NWO Honey Badgers lead off, taking on the Seattle Derby Brats.

The NWO Outsiders follow at 7:15 p.m., taking on the Doomsday Bunnies.

Admission is $8 for a single ticket or $12 for two.
