The Windy City Rollers Third Coast overcame an early deficit for a convincing 258-111 win over the DuPage Derby Dames Onslaught at the Lombard Roller Rink Saturday night.
It was a big night for the Third Coast jamming corps, which featured strong play from Goldilock Stock’n Barrel, Shake N Bake, and Speeding Rainbow. The Windy City squad’s jammers consistently won lead-jammer status, and when DuPage jammers managed to get out ahead, they often found a Third Coast jammer gaining ground and forcing short and scoreless jams.

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 ...

If you didn’t make it to the final bout of the home season last Saturday night, we’ve got you covered! UIC Pavilion was packed with fans ready to watch The Fury take on the Hell's Belles in the game that both teams have been working towards all season long.
It was pretty clear during the team intros that the Hell’s Belles brought a huge cheering section, but that didn’t shake up The Fury. Jam 1 pinned Killjoy (Belles) against Hat Trixxxie (Fury), with Killjoy out of the pack first. Trixxxie was ...

The Double Crossers got their first win of 2015 Saturday night, outlasting the Manic Attackers, to whom they lost back in February, to take third place.
The silent assassins came out of the gate swinging. Lucy Wreckardo took the jammer line for the Double Crossers in the first jam, facing off against the Manics' Jan Trainor. Trainor quickly went to the box for a track cut, giving the Double Crossers a power jam. A slow pack allowed Lucy Wreckardo to score 19 and solid blocking kept Trainor from scoring after being released.
A couple quick, ...
