Windy City Rollers Travel Teams Dominate

2ndwind_01.jpgSaturday was a very sweet homecoming for one Windy City Rollers skater.

Killa Nois, who didn't give her real name, was skating in her first bout with the Rollers' B-team, the Second Wind, Saturday. A jammer who transferred from the Angel City Derby Girls of Los Angeles, Killa Nois (who took home MVP honors) could not be stopped as the Second Wind powered past the Paper Valley Roller Girls 153-110.

Killa Nois drew first blood, scoring seven very quick points in the first jam of the night.

After the bout, Killa Nois, a Chicago native, said she moved back to the city from LA in August and wasted no time getting involved with the Rollers. Saturday's bout was her introduction to Rollers fans.

"Literally the day after I moved back, I had my tryout," she said. "This was the best introduction I could have ever had."

The Rollers A-team, the All-Stars, were also in action Saturday night, facing off against North-Central region foe the Tornado Sirens of the Naptown Roller Girls. In what could be a preview of the WFTDA championships in just under two weeks, the All-Stars beat the Tornado Sirens by 120 points, 238-118.

From the first jam, the All-Stars appeared out for blood, limiting the Sirens to four points over the first four jams. With 4:40 left in the first half, their lead had grown to 101, 133-32.

Naptown was not about to lay down. Jammer Amooze-Booche seemed to be the only one who could get past a solid core of All-Stars blockers allstars_01.jpg including Jackie Daniels and Sargentina, the latter of whom was named MVP. Though down by 101 with just over four minutes left, solid play by Amooze-Booche doubled the Sirens score, making it 138-64 at the half.

Both teams started the second half strong and for a short time, it appeared the Tornado Sirens could be on the verge of a comeback, pulling to within 64 early on in the half. But from that point on, it was all All-Stars, whose lead had grown to 116 with 6:20 left to play.

That lead would grow by four more points, with the All-Stars winning in dominant fashion 238-118.
