DALLAS, TX– The third day of games at the Roller Derby World Cup became the beginning of the end for the final eight bracket. While some of the closest, most exciting games played out on the consolation track, the largest crowds showed their allegiance on tracks 1 and 2 with roaring cheers for those final 16 teams who battled it to make the finals. The winning eight teams from tracks 1 and 2 were seeded into the final bracket by point differential, and after the quarter final games played out, todays final game match-ups will be USA vs Australia, and Canada vs England. Blood & Thunder did announce a third place game today, which alters the day’s schedule slightly.
There’s nothing that can prepare a team for the might of 2011 Roller Derby World Cup champions Team USA, but the Netherlands and Puerto Rico are charged with that task. Both teams are having their inaugural showing at this event, and will be out to prove that they have what it takes to roll with the champs in their first pool matches.
