Windy City (#1 North Central WFTDA, #9 nationally DNN) was the last top-ten team to play in 2010, but showed they were still a force by taking down North Star (#6 NC, #24 nationally) by 100 points, 159-59. Photo: Gil Leora.
(6) Rose City 124, (7) Rat City 105 — Although visiting Rat City lost their jammer to the penalty box in both of the first two jams of this one, solid defense from Rat kept Rose City to only a 10-1 after 5 minutes of play. The action remained remarkably low-scoring through the opening ten minutes at 10-7 Rose City, and then yet another jammer major penalty — this one on Rat City’s Re-AnimateHer — allowed Rose to open up some space. RCR’s Cadillac pulled a 9-0 and iced Re-AnimateHer in the box by calling the jam, and the next one went 13-0 for RCR’s Sully Skullkicker, giving Rose their first solid lead at 32-7.
