B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls beat WCR All-Stars 230-135

The B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls beat the Windy City Rollers All-Stars 230-135 in the quarterfinals of the 2013 Women's Flat Track Derby Association championships.

B.ay A.rea jumped out to a 32-0 lead early in the first half before the All-Stars scored their first points. All-Stars jammers had a tough time dealing with B.ay A.rea blockers, though Jackie Daniels and Sandrine Rangeon kept the All-Stars from falling too far behind.

A 45-0 run brought the All-Stars to within 7 points with under 10 minutes left in the first half, but B.ay A.rea kept the pressure on and took a 109-64 lead into halftime.
