At the Wild West Showdown in Bremerton, Washington, the Dots made a very big showing in their first tournament as a member of WFTDA by winning all 3 of their bouts with a seriously impressive point spread.

First up, they rolled out against Tacoma’s Dockyard Derby Dames, also new to the WFTDA and currently unranked. In the end, the Dots were making waves that the Dockyard Dames just couldn’t handle, and won 216-58.

After a full day of rest, the Dots were up against #21 in the region, the Sin City Roller Girls. In the end Sin City was thwarted 198-64. Two hours later they were back in action against Lava City’s Smokin’ Ashes from Bend, OR; currently ranked 19 in the west. The Smokin’ Ashes were stomped out with a final score of 226-59.

Earlier this month at the Dust Devil in Tuscon, Arizona, the Dots also won the first 2 of the 4 games they played, against some seriously high-end WFTDA-ranked derby competition!

On day one, they squashed Assassination City, ranked #16 in the South Central region,  258-40. The Dots then went on to trump Pikes Peak, ranked #10 in the west, 168-72. The following day proved much more challenging, as the level of competition sky-rocketed. The Dots gave Tucson (#9 in the west) a run for their money with a final score of 109-91, Tucson; followed by another close match against Angel City (#12 in the west), with ACDG coming ahead 143-118.

These events counted towards SVRG’s WFTDA national rankings, which dictate whether SVRG will be in the Western Regional Competition this fall! Ranking updates will be out soon, so stay tuned! Ctrl+Alt+Del!
