Rollers Take WFTDA North-Central Region Title

In a repeat of last year's WFTDA north-central region final, the Windy City Rollers All-Stars took their fourth N-C region title in a row with a 165-153 win over the Minnesota RollerGirls.

According to Derby News Network, Minnesota led for all but one jam in the first half while the Rollers led for all but one jam in the second. The Rollers led 154-145 when Minnesota called their last timeout with 1:58 left in the bout. WCR's KonichiWOW took the final jam 11-8 for a Rollers win.

The Rollers will battle for the WFTDA championship in Atlanta Nov. 2-4.
