On September 15th, Reykjavík’s resident Valkyries, the Ragnrök roller derby team, took on the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers from Texas in the ultimate clash of the titans. While our girls ended up losing to the Americans with an end score of 314 to 76, the game was still a fun time for all. Ice-Sickle, the much feared and adored founder of the league, very much enjoyed the day in spite of the defeat. “The Texas team was very experienced so we learned a lot from them,” she said. “We are going to come in much stronger for the next game.”

Here’s how it all went down.
