Windy City Rollers Close Out Season With Victory

The Windy City Rollers closed out a fantastic 2009 season at home with a big victory over the Rose City Rollers' (Portland) All-Star Team by a 113-73 final. It was a hard-fought bout that still saw the Rollers pull ahead for the win. In the early bout, Milwaukee's Brewcity Bruiders tripped up WCR's Second Wind 62-53. It was also bittersweet evening as it was the final home bout for Rollers Megan Formor, Malice with Chains, and Eva Dead as well as well as travel team bench coach Kami Sutra.

Next up for the Rollers? The Declaration of Derby, the 2009 WFTDA National Tournament, November 13 through 15 in Philadelphia. The Rollers enter as the number one North Central seed by virtue of their winning the Brawl of America North Central regional tournament back in September. After nationals, the Rollers take a break but will be back in action for the 2010 season in January.
