DENVER, CO - The last two bouts of the 2011 WFTDA Championships are in the books, Kansas City finishes fourth after losing to Texas, and Oly finishes second for the second year in a row after losing to Gotham.
The Semifinals: Texas 136 over Kansas City 112
The Texas Rollergirls made a meaningful leap into the top of the WFTDA ranks today by beating the already bruised and battered Kansas City Roller Warriors. Although the Roller Warriors were in the bout late, Texas was in full control in the final ten minutes, and their efforts yielded a coveted third place finish in this year’s crowd pleasing tourney. While Kansas City was never out of the bout on paper, their bench was no match for the Texecutioners, and although many would gladly trade places with them, their missed opportunities will surely inspire them in 2012. In recognition of their efforts, Kelley Young, the Kansas City “triple threat” was recognized as tournament MVP, a title that doesn’t begin to describe her abilities on and off the track.
The Finals: Gotham Derby Girls 140 over Oly Rollers 97
