WCR All-Stars lose to Denver

The Windy City Rollers All-Stars lost to the Denver Roller Dolls 212-130 Saturday in the quarterfinals of the WFTDA championships.

20121103-SCS_3021.jpgAccording to Derby News Network, Denver took the lead early and never gave it up. It took nearly five minutes for the All-Stars to score, allowing Denver to go up 19-0 early in the bout.

The All-Stars were down 131-77 at the start of the second half. For a short time, it looked as though they might be on the verge of a comeback, but penalties and strong defense from Denver allowed Denver to pull away and get the 82-point win.
