WCR All-Stars to Take on San Diego Derby Dolls

wcr logo.jpg
Chicago's own Windy City Rollers All-Stars are on a winning streak this season, having rolled over Pittsburgh's Steel City 147-117 at their July 30 home game. Hopefully our gals can keep it up at their August 27 bout against the San Diego Derby Dolls at the UIC Pavilion (525 S Racine). San Diego are known for being the first hybrid league in the nation, skating banked- as well as flat-track derby. But none of those fancy banked shenanigans will take place at their bout on Saturday night--no siree, this is flat-track country!

WCR's Second Wind, the league's B team who are hot off last month's awesome win against the Gotham Wall Street Traitors (166-77), will open the evening at 6 p.m. with a game against the Ohio Rollergirls. The All-Stars game begins at 7:30. Tickets start at $20 and are on sale online or at the door.
