PORTLAND, OR – The last game on Saturday night of the 2016 International WFTDA Championships brought together the hosts and reigning world champions, Rose City Wheels of Justice, and The Victoria All-Stars of Melbourne, VIC for the second time this season. The two teams met at The Big O where Victoria brought home the win in a narrow 12-point game while they were both without one of their top scoring jammers; Loren Mutch for Rose City and Christy Demons for VRDL.
Both teams came into Champs with a strong season behind them. Victoria had an undefeated 4-0 season which was all played at The Big O, while Rose City had a 6-1 season with four of those wins being by more than 100 points. On Saturday, the tension continued to build until the final jam when Rose City pulled back ahead and took the win 155-152.
