2007 WFTDA National Champions:
The Kansas City Roller Warriors
The tournament is over, and holy sweet goddamn what a tournament it was. The home town Texas Rollergirls landed in third place after a tough loss to the Rat City Rollergirls and a relatively relaxed victory over the Carolina Rollergirls. In the final bout, the Kansas City Roller Warriors delivered a STUNNING victory, defeating the formidable Rat City Rollergirls by just four points in one of the most exciting derby bouts in the history of the universe.
One MVP was chosen from each team in the final bout. The MVPs were Kansas City’s Xcelerator (who’s a rookie, by the way) and Rat City’s Miss Fortune.
We’ll have the full bout play by play archive up here on the site within a couple of days. Until then, you can view the special liveblog section here. It will no longer auto-update, obviously, since there’s no new info.

Special thanks to Apocalippz and SlaughterMelon for inviting me down and taking good care of me during the tournament. There’s no way we could provide the live coverage without their blessing and help, so cheers to the Shootout crew!
