Outfit Loses in First Round of Playoffs

The Syndicate, the A-team of the Chicago Outfit, lost in the first round of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Division One playoffs Friday.

Tammy Tsiones, who skates for the Syndicate under the name Pippi Long Smackings, said the Syndicate lost to the Victorian Roller Derby League of Melbourne, Australia, 304-115.

The loss means the Syndicate will not be going to the WFTDA championships in Milwaukee in November.
