I wouldn’t usually post bout footage here but this is a good one. Not only did the Minnesota RollerGirls become the first North Central Region team to defeat the Windy City Rollers but they did it in an extremely close way.
Well, a little too close it seems. There was a scoring error and instead of winning it, it ended up being a tie which wasn’t discovered until the track was torn up and the fans headed home.
There’s a better article then I could write at Roller Derby Inside Track about what all happened and what it mean. WFTDA is still reviewing the data before coming to a decision on what happened and who won.
