RICHMOND, VA–The New Jax City Rollers took on the Kansas City Roller Warrriors All-Stars for fifth place at 2pm on the final day. The 8th seed had picked themselves up from an opening-day shock against a disciplined New Hampshire team, while KCRW had built on a stronger-than-expected showing against the Philly Rollergirl before posting strong wins to take them to the end of the consolation bracket.

D1R: (8) Jacksonville Outlasts (10) Terminal City, 162-127

RICHMOND, VA — In the final game of Saturday action, surprising low seeds Jacksonville (8th) and Terminal City (10th) found themselves competing for a spot in the 5th place game against Kansas City. Both teams featured remarkably speedy jammers, but Jacksonville’s defense was just a bit better; an enjoyably old-school game defined by track play rather than penalty pileups ended with Jacksonville triumphant 162-127.
