WCR All-Stars Take on the Boston Massacre

There's been a bit of a derby drought lately, but the WCR All-Stars are picking up the pace in their bout against the Boston Massacre on Saturday, July 31 at the UIC Pavillion (525 S Racine). The All-Stars (the Windy City Rollers' travel team) are in the middle of their season. They currently hold the No. 1 place in the region, but have fallen to No. 11 in the nation, edged out by--wait for it--Boston. This head-to-head showdown should be a good match.

Doors open at 5 p.m. The Windy City Rollers Second Wind (the WCR's B team) plays vs. TBA at 6, and the All-Stars bout begins at 7:30. Tickets start at $20, and you can get yours here or at the box office.

The Second Wind will play the Cincinnati Silent Lambs in the first bout. Exciting roller derby for both matches!
