Windy City Rollers Take Second in Championships

Well, hell. After slamming their way to the finals, the Windy City Rollers All-Stars met their match yesterday in the Northwest Knockdown national roller derby championship bout against NYC's Gotham Girls. Still, it was an exciting game ending 134-66 Gotham, placing them as the top roller derby league in the United States, followed by Windy City, and the Philly Roller Girls in third. Congratulations to all the teams that participated!
