With the crowd frothed up from the Second Wind/CN Power bout, the WCR All-Stars took the track against Montreal’s New Skids on the Block in a nail-biting win where the All-Stars won 249-211 at the UIC Pavilion on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Even though they won the ugliest uniform competition for the night, the New Skids were ready for battle against the WCR All-Stars and proved to hang tough through the entirety of the bout.
Friday night’s first bout on March 1, 2013, matched up the 2012 champion Manic Attackers against the Double Crossers, a team with a lot of new faces and new talent. The XX made their mark in January with determination and great teamwork, having closed out the preseason tournament with a sassy last minute victory against the Hell’s Belles. This weekend the Crossers showed their squad’s athleticism and growing potential, but they still had their hands full against the Ivy King Cup winners throughout the bout.
