from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A game some-what similar to ice-hockey, played in roller-skating rinks. The players are mounted on roller-skates and endeavor, with sticks shaped somewhat like shinny-sticks, to drive the ball into the goals at either end of the rink. These goals are open at the front, but are caged with netting at the back.
