KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON–The top-seeded DC Rollergirls faced Bear City’s 9-seeded Berlin Bombshells in the fourth game of the Kitchener-Waterloo games, and what a game it was. These teams have faced each other twice in the past two years, with Bear City taking the win in 2012–shortly before DC went to the final Eastern Regional tournament where they finished 6th–and DC taking the win in early May this year at the Beach Brawl. Bear City made it 2-0 on the day, and 2-1 all-time against DC, with a last-jam 166-156 win.
This game was, at least for Angel City, the most anticipated of the tournament. Since Denver took away Angel City’s climb through the WFTDA Championships in Milwaukee last year, when Denver took the game 200-125, Angel City was always going to see this game as the opportunity to set that record right, and test their new relative rankings standing for 2014.
