Tournament season officially begins today! The Windy City All-Stars will travel to Omaha, Neb., Oct. 2-4, 2015 for the WFTDA D1 Playoffs.
Your Windy City All-Stars finished the season ranked #20 overall and seeded #5 in the Omaha playoff, which earns them a first-round bye. In the second round, they will get a rematch against Montreal Roller Derby, ranked #16. WCR All-Stars went up against Montreal at East Coast Derby Extravaganza in June. Montreal came out victorious with a score of 303-97, but the bout was closer than the score might ...

It was history in the making last Saturday night at the Broadway Armory—three local leagues dueled it out against each other under one roof, and the excitement was certainly noticeable. The first bout of the night featured the Chicago Bruise Brothers vs. Windy City Rollers’ Second Wind, and while these two teams have skated alongside each other in the past, the players meant business when they took the track to face one another.
The Bruise Brothers took lead jammer status right at the first whistle, putting three points on the board, but ...

To say the bout between the Windy City Rollers All-Stars and the Outfit Syndicate this past Saturday was historic is perhaps an understatement. These two midwest roller derby powerhouses are regularly ranked in the top 40 of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association -- and both of them call Chicago home. It’s a lot of roller derby for one city, but the city of big shoulders has enough love for both leagues. That was on full display at the Broadway Armory last Saturday night.
This bout was a long time coming, and ...

Although the Windy City Rollers Second Wind fought hard and started out the game on top of the Mad Rollin’ Dolls Dairyland Dolls B Team, Madison ultimately came out victorious on Saturday evening at our second bout of the travel season.

The first jam saw Hat Trixxxie for Second Wind taking on Blitz Siren for the Dairyland Dolls B Team. After a slow start, Trixxxie broke through the pack for lead jammer status, and successful recycling of Dairlyand Dolls jammer Blitz Siren by the Second Wind blockers allowed her to get ...

In the second game of the night at our travel season bout at Lombard Roller Rink this past Saturday, the Windy City Rollers All-Stars were looking for their first win this season. Pitted against the Mad Rollin’ Dolls A-team, the Dairyland Dolls All-Stars, the WCR All-Stars successfully took down our neighbors to the north in an excitingly close game.
The first two jams were low scoring, with Magic Missile getting 1 point for the Dairyland Dolls in jam 1 and Ms. Dr. Joseph L. Simonis 2 points for WCR in jam ...

The Dairyland Dolls are currently ranked 26th ...

It all came down to the last jam: a power jam for the the Windy City Rollers All-Stars, a 10-point deficit and a veteran jammer in KillaNois. This down-to-the-wire finish capped off a hard-hitting, incredibly close bout between the WCR All-Stars and the Team United All-Stars last Saturday at the Lombard Roller Rink.
Earlier that evening, the 2015 WCR All-Stars skated out on the track for the first time. With a roster full of fresh faces, they were looking to prove themselves. And even though WCR ultimately fell to a formidable ...

Both the Windy City Rollers Second Wind and the Des Moines Team United Blue Ribbon Bullies came ready to skate last Saturday at the Lombard Roller Rink. These evenly matched B teams jockeyed back and forth before the Blue Ribbon Bullies pulled away to take the win.
In an early jam, Second Wind jammer Lucy Wreckardo found herself in a power jam situation, but the Bullies’ blockers didn’t let her pass through easily. After Lucy got lead jammer, BreZ laid a huge hit on her that landed her in the box and Kay ...

It’s time for a road trip! Gather everyone you know and head to St. Paul, Minnesota with Second Wind and the WCR All-Stars this coming Saturday, Apr. 25 for a double header against the Minnesota RollerGirls. It’s going to be a night to remember, as who can forget the last time these Chicago teams bouted Minnesota’s finest!
That’s right, it was at last year’s Brewhaha tournament when Second Wind played Minnesota Nice and dominated with a 297-131 win. Then in the heat of last summer the WCR and MNRG All-Star teams played, and again the ...
