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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

The Hell's Belles may have beaten The Fury by 125 points Saturday, but the bout was a lot closer than the final score would indicate. With the 235-110 victory, the Belles move to 3-0 on the season and take sole possession of first place. The Fury moves to 2-1 and takes over the second spot.
Both teams came out of the gate swinging. In the first jam, Hat Trixxxie, jamming for The Fury, went to the box for a track cut. Almost immediately, Killjoy, jamming for the Hell's Belles, went to the ...
