Last weekend in Portland, OR the Oly Rollers proved that they are the best team out of the West by winning their region playoffs in a field that contained some of the powerhouse teams in roller derby such as Rocky Mountain (last season’s champions), Rose City, Bay Area, Denver, and Rat City.
Although the tournament saw some major upsets and close bouts, Oly continued their season’s undefeated streak moving onto the championships in November along with Rocky and Rose City, who qualified by finishing second and third respectively.
This Friday September 30th marks the start date for the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association’s (WFTDA) South Central playoffs. The tournament is set to take place in Kansas City, MO, where the home town Kansas City Roller Warriors are the tournament favourite.
The first bout of the tournament is set to take place at 10:00 a.m. with the number 7 seed No Coast Derby Girls taking on the number ten seed Omaha Rollergirls.
