Local Derby Teams Suffer Losses

Our girls from Chicago's two roller derby leagues, Chicago Outfit and the Windy City Rollers, have suffered at the hands of their opponents in recent games.

On Saturday, Aug. 14, the Outfit took on Indianapolis' Naptown Tornado Sirens. Alas, the Sirens pulled ahead in what turned out to be a close game, beating the Outfit 94-89.

On Saturday, August 21, it was the Windy City Rollers All-Stars in a home game against Denver's Rocky Mountain Roller Girls' travel team, 5280 Fight Club. The Rocky Mountain gals immediately snagged a strong lead and didn't let up the rest of the game, walloping the All-Stars 151-56.
