WFTDA’s tournament season is in full swing as the Texas Rollergirls’ Texecutioners travel to Kansas City, Missouri, to compete in the South Central Regional Playoffs. They will compete with nine other teams for one of three spots at the National Championship tournament in November.
The Texecutioners have set their sights on their top-seeded hosts, the Kansas City Roller Warriors. Texies’ co-captain Bloody Mary commented, “We want KC so badly our eyes are bleeding. If we can get to that final game, and see them there, we’ll feel like we made it to gladiator stadium. We believe KC can take the Champs, and we believe we can beat them. We don’t know if we will but the chance at them is what we’re hungry for this weekend.”
The Texies will be playing tonight at 6pm against the winner of Game 2 between No Coast and Omaha. You can watch the tournament online or you can join the Texas Rollergirls at Fado Irish Pub tonight for an exclusive watch party. You can also join them at 2pm tomorrow and 6:30 Sunday, if they make it into the championship game.
Competing teams in South Central ranking order are: Kansas City Roller Warriors, Texas Rollergirls, Nashville Rollergirls, Atlanta Rollergirls, Houston Roller Derby, Tampa Bay Derby Darlins, No Coast Derby Girls (Lincoln, NE), Green Country Roller Girls (Tulsa, OK), Gold Coast Derby Girls (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) and Omaha Rollergirls.
