The Rat City Rollergirls travelled to Bremerton last weekend to compete in the Wild West Showdown, a multibout derbypalooza weekend hosted by the Slaughter County Roller Vixens.
The All-Stars had three games, and despite dropping the first two to West Region rivals, Denver’s Mile High Club (140-118) and Rose City’s Wheels of Justice (165-78), they closed the weekend a high note, defeating Philly Rollergirls’ Liberty Belles 157-111. The Liberty Belles have competed at the WFTDA Championship Tournament for each of the past 3 years, and finished fourth overall in 2010.
The Rain of Terror, Rat City Rollergirls secondary travel team, also played this weekend in two 30-minute challenge bouts. On Saturday, they made it rain all over Jet City’s B-52s: 109-17. On Sunday, they faced stiffer competition against “High Octane”, a Pacific Northwest superteam made up of all-star skaters from Rat City, Oly Rollers, and other nearby leagues. Rain of Terror lost 159-20, but they fought hard whistle-to-whistle.
