DALLAS, TX – The 9th place game was an opportunity for Rideau Valley to better their position by 1 spot but staunch defense from Ohio Roller Girls and strong jamming thwarted Rideau Valley’s efforts. Ohio Roller Girls came away with 9th place seeding intact and their first win of the tournament, winning 251-208.

DALLAS, TX – Coming off of losses yesterday, #6 tournament seed Dallas took on #9 tournament seed Ohio in a closely matched game of jammer strength and defensive power. While both teams put up valiant fights to the very end of the game, Dallas was able to consistently overpower Ohio just enough to clinch victory in the end. Dallas took the win 174-159 and will go on to play Sun State Rollergirls at 6pm (CDT) today.

DALLAS, TX – The first game of the day was one that Crime City held from beginning to end, with more solid defensive lines then the somewhat fragmented Ohio, and jammers who tested every inch of track working to their favor, finishing the game at 221-115.

The Division 1 WFTDA Playoffs continue with a tournament in Dallas this weekend, and this will be the most diverse bracket of them all. Of the 13 teams from outside the United States that are participating in 2015 playoffs, 4 are in this bracket with 3 teams making their first appearance at WFTDA tournaments. The host league, Dallas, is also making a return after not making the top 60 last year, and participating in Division 2 the year before. The uncertainty of these teams gives this weekend the makings of a bracket buster.

The top 3 teams of this weekend will join Victoria, Bay Area, and Arch Rival in St. Paul this November. Catch all the action live on WFTDA.tv, or catch up on games with our recaps and scores at Dallas Central. Hear more about this bracket with Brooklyn’s article on WFTDA’s playoff blog.
