Saturday night the Manic Attackers met the Hell's Belles for the second time in two weeks, with the prize for this bout being a trip to the Ivy King Cup championship in June. Just the same as a fortnight ago, the Manics were victorious with a 227-122 win.

Devout derby fans can pick up quickly on the fundamentals of following the game. Power jams, three-walls, back blocks, and jam clocks circle the mind of the enthusiast as easily as they roll off the tongue. But do we know why our favorite players wear the numbers they wear? We asked some of the Windy City All-Stars how they picked their numbers and why they wear them. Most of the All-Stars told us that their squad numbers were “not too exciting,” but we found that more often than not, there’s an ...

The Saturday night of Aug 25, 2012 was a spine-tingling evening to watch roller derby at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago. The Windy City’s B team, Second Wind, took on the Denver Roller Dolls’ Bruising Altitude. Bruising Altitude was a strong team to contend with and the Second Wind met them toe stop to toe stop at every jam. This was a game full of scrum starts, with packs and jammers all compressed together at the jam line. The jammers had their work cut out for them, as they had ...

2012 was the Manic Attackers’ year heading into the Ivy King Cup Championship. In both 2010 and 2011 the Manics had their eyes on the title, but The Fury walked off with the cup. But after a season of hard work and instituting a “whole team” mentality, the Manic Attackers went undefeated. From the first whistle both teams dueled as The Fury led an offensive battle putting their best guns out. Yet, twice the Manics came back from huge deficits in the title bout to end The Fury’s reign.

The Second Wind was able to make short work out of the Warning Belles behind excellent pack control and unstoppable jamming.

With the first place seeding on the line, the Manic Attackers took the fight to the Hell’s Belles and claimed a first place victory winning 168-102 at the UIC Pavilion Saturday night. Both teams were frothing from the beginning, but the Manic Attackers had the gas to hold on until the end and sent the Hell’s Belles home with a loss. With both teams going into triple digits, there was no shortage of scoring, but the Manic Attackers defense is what was holding strong as the final whistle blew.
