Have you ever played any of the teams in your Playoff bracket? If so, how did those games turn out? If not, which match-up are you most excited about? Why?
Denver Roller Dolls (#2) - Last played Denver in 2007. Denver won 106-98
Montréal Roller Derby (#8) - Never played them.
Arch Rival Roller Girls (#11) - We've played Arch Rival every year since 2008. It's always a good game.
London Rollergirls (#16) - Never played them.
Rose City Rollers (#19) - Never played them.
Ohio Roller Girls (#24) - Something of a rivalry. We've played them every year except for 2012.
Wasatch Roller Derby (#27) - Never played them.
Bleeding Heartland Rollergirls (#35) - We've played them twice this year. They won at home the first game 221-218. We won at home five weeks later 358-173.
Grand Raggidy Roller Girls (#40) - I think we've played Grand Raggidy more than any other team. They are something of a sister league and we always have fun with them. They've never beaten us, but the teams know each other very well, so it's always a fun, competitive game.
What are some game highlights from your travel team season this year?
We had a 9 game winning streak in which we scored over 200 points every game, and over 300 points four times. We've always focused on defense, so that kind of point production was something different for us.
Who are your highest scoring jammers?
We relied almost exclusively on a two-jammer rotation this year. Wheezy and K. Lethal have scored in the neighborhood of 95% of our points. Neither jammer likes to sit. They are both most comfortable jamming every other jam.
