SEATTLE, WA – In their first WFTDA Playoff tournament, #24-ranked 2×4 Roller Derby got to play three different kinds of games this weekend. Their first was a close game against #9 seed Windy City – a battle that got revenge for 2×4 over their previous much larger loss against the team. Next, they were pitted against the #1 seed and current Hydra holder, the Rose City Rollers. The team were outmatched against the Wheels of Justice, but used every tool in their toolbox and star passed their way to a valiant loss against a hard opponent.
Today the team took on #10 seed Ann Arbor in a consolation game, and dominated the Michigan team from start to finish, wrapping up their weekend with a 150-point win. Ann Arbor had only one game previously in the weekend – a 280-99 loss to Tampa on Friday – with a day off in between to prepare for this game. Penalties set Ann Arbor behind from the start, and after giving 2×4 everything they had, the team managed to break 100 points this time, with a 255-105 loss to Team Osom.
