Weekend Scores, June 24th-26th 2016

FOLLOW: Editorial, Media, News

Games played this weekend that are sanctioned by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association will be the final ones to be entered into the rankings calculator towards June rankings. That release will be posted on July 15th along with seeding for WFTDA Playoff Tournaments.

There are two major tournaments going on this weekend, plus a rematch between #1 Gotham and #4 London.

In St. Louis, Missouri, Arch Rival and the St. Louis GateKeepers are hosting the Sibling Rivalry tournament, which consists of top level women’s and men’s teams from around the United States. For WFTDA teams, #8 Arch Rival will host #7 Jacksonville, #9 Denver, #11 Rat City, #12 Minnesota, and #15 Atlanta.

For MRDA teams, the #1 GateKeepers will be joined by #4 New York Shock Exchange, #5 Puget Sound, #8 Magic City, #12 Twin Cities Terrors, and #30 Denver Ground Control. These games will also be important towards qualifying for MRDA Champs this October in Texas.

Sibling Rivalry is not being streamed, but their Facebook page has been posting some videos during the games. Below is the schedule that we will update with scores as the weekend goes on.

In Salt Lake City, Utah, Wasatch Roller Derby is hosting the Great Salt Skate, a two day event featuring Division 2 level teams. There is word of it being streamed, so stay tuned for more details on that.

#44 Wasatch is hosting #41 Arizona, #54 Chicago Outfit, and #59 Boulder County for WFTDA sanctioned games.

There will also be a regulation game between the Wasatch B-Team, the Bonneville Bone Crushers, and the Jackson Hole Juggernauts on Friday.

The Great Salt Skate
Saturday Sunday
#54 Chicago Outfit vs #41 Arizona #54 Chicago Outfit vs #59 Boulder County
#44 Wasatch vs #59 Boulder County #41 Arizona vs #59 Boulder County

#44 Wasatch vs #41 Arizona

 

Last but not least, #1 Gotham Girls Roller Derby has made the trip overseas for a re-match against the #4 London Rollergirls.

In 2014 Brawling hosted the Hive Mind in July, and the game resulted in a 294-56 defeat by Gotham, the then reigning WFTDA Champion team. The two met up at Champs in Nashville that same year, which Gotham took again, but by a smaller margin at 280-94.

In 2016 London has won 4 sanctioned games, and Gotham has 3 sanctioned wins under their belt,  but so far neither have had very close match-ups.

Now that Gotham’s undefeated streak has been broken by the current #3 team, Rose City, and #2 Victoria nearly beat them in the semi-final round of Champs (and still hold the record for the longest time Gotham has been closed out of the game lead), we will see how London, the #4 team, will fare against them this time around.

You can watch Brawling versus Gotham online at 6pm BST for £6, click here to get your virtual ticket.

There are a few other WFTDA sanctioned games this weekend between top 60 teams. Feel free to Tweet us your scores @CentralDerby and we will try to get them posted as well.
