D2KW Final: Rideau Valley Sinks Berlin, 243-240

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--The final of the second Division 2 tournament was contested by Bear City's #9 seeded Berlin Bombshells and Rideau Valley's #3 seeded Vixens--the representative teams from Flat Track Stat's #5 leagues in Europe and Canada respectively. Form suggested that Rideau should take the win after two very strong wins in the run-up to this, but Berlin were having none of it.

D2KW 3rd: Killamazoo Overwhelms Gold Coast, 180-162

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--Eyes on the bronze medal, 4 seed Killamazoo and 7 seed Gold Coast Derby Grrls came together in the second-to-last game of the Kitchener-Waterloo tournament and delivered an exciting, hard-hitting game. With several lead changes and extraordinary determination by both teams, Killamazoo was able to clinch the lead in the last few jams, taking home a 180-162 win.

D2KW 5th: Queen City Claims DC, 226-144

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--Having entered this tournament as 1 and 2 seed respectively, Queen City and DC found themselves fighting for fifth place after having their Championships dreams dashed earlier in the weekend by teams with substantially lower WFTDA rankings than themselves.

D2KW 7th: Outfit Remodels Demolition, 189-150

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--Looking to take the title of 7th place overall, Demolition City (who came into the tournament an 8 seed) took on The Chicago Outfit (originally seeded 5th). Each team clearly had their sights set on victory for this game, but after an intense 60 minute fight, Demolition City was unable to match The Outfit’s smart defense and determined jammers.

D2KW 9th: Boulder County Tumbles Grand Raggidy, 244-172

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--Playing for 9th and 10th place, 6 seed Boulder County opened the final day of D2 playoffs against 10 seed Grand Raggidy. Grand Raggidy put up a solid fight against Boulder, nearly overtaking them in the second half, but intense penalty trouble--as has been the case throughout the weekend--proved Grand Raggidy’s undoing.

D2KW: Queen City Confounds Demolition City, 188-174

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--Queen City's Lake Effect Furies were among the pre-tournament favourites but fell in their opening game. Demolition City were one of the mystery packages of the weekend having played very few sanctioned or streamed games, and had shown themselves to be formidable and physical opponents.

D2KW: Rideau Valley Washes Over Gold Coast, 224-139

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--In the semi-finals of the Kitchener-Waterloo games, The 3 seed Rideau Valley Roller Girls Vixens took on the 7 seed Gold Coast Derby Grrls. Both teams had strong games to that point in the tournament, and this game looked as though it was going to be a very close match up.

D2KW: DC Cleans Up Outfit, 186-169

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--Traded penalties and a struggle to maintain cohesion for any length of time defined the D2 consolation-bracket match-up between the DC Rollergirls and The Chicago Outfit. DC held it together better through a messy encounter and emerged 186-169 winners, to fight for fifth and claim an improvement of at least three spots over their 2013 playoff placement.

D2KW: Outfit Calms Grand Raggidy, 202-153

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--The first game in the second day at Kitchener-Waterloo brought together two Midwest teams, the 5 seed Chicago Outfit and 10 seed Grand Raggidy. Grand Raggidy were favoured to win as the bout started (despite being 10 seeds) thanks to putting up a 331-105 win over The Outfit back in March.

D2KW: Rideau Valley Explodes Boulder, 239-130

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON--In the final game of the first day of the Kitchener-Waterloo playoffs, the Rideau Valley Roller Girls dominated the Boulder County Bombers, winning 239-130.

Both teams started the game with solid, controlled defense. Though Boulder put up a good fight against Rideau, they were ultimately not able to overcome Rideau’s solid 4-person walls or their agile jammers.
