WFTDA tournament season has begun! This weekend, in Pittsburg, sixteen Division 2 teams gather for the D2 playoffs and championships. All in one weekend. That is a lot of games.
Because I am a big nerd, I did my own predictions on the championships. Here is the link to the brackets.
Game one is at 10 am on Friday, so it’s actually going on right now as I type this. I make my predictions yesterday.
For game one the Seed 1 – Auld Reekie Roller Girls take on the Seed 16 – Dublin Roller Derby. Dublin
Game Two – Seed 6 – Middlesbrough Roller Derby vs Seed 11 – Columbia Quad Squad. I am hoping for an upset because I want the Columbia Quad Squad to take it.
Game Three -- Seed 9 – No Coast Roller Derby vs Seed 8 – Ohio Roller Derby. I am a huge Ohio Roller Derby fan, so I want them to win the whole thing. So, if you see Ohio playing anyone, my prediction is Ohio.
Game Four – Seed 14 – Bear City Roller Derby vs Seed 3 – Paris Roller Derby. Paris Roller Derby has never seen tournament play like this. Bear City has for many years. I am going with Bear City for the win.
Game Five – Seed 5 Oklahoma Victory Dolls vs Seed 12 Naptown Roller Derby - OKVD for the win.
Game Six – Seed 2 Tucson Roller Derby vs Seed 15 E-ville Roller Derby. Tucson Saddletramps for the win.
Game Seven – Seed 13 Treasure Valley Roller Derby vs Seed 4 Jet City Rollergirls. Jet City is another one of my favorites. They hail from Everett, Washington. So, of course, Jet City for the win.
Game Eight - Seed 10 Pirate City Roller Derby vs Seed 7 Boston Roller Derby. Boston wins.
Game Nine - Dublin vs Ohio, according to previous predictions. Ohio for the win.
Game Ten – Columbia Quad Squad vs Bear City – Columbia for the win.
Game Eleven – Auld Reekie vs Naptown with Naptown winning.
Game Twelve – Middlesbrough vs E-ville – Middlesbrough will win.
Game Thirteen –OKVD vs Jet -- Jet City will win.
Game Fourteen – Tucson vs Boston – Tucson will win.
Game Fifteen – No Coast vs Treasure Valley -- No Coast win
Game Sixteen – Paris vs Pirate City - Paris win.
Game Seventeen – Dublin vs OKVD -- Dublin
Game Eighteen – Bear vs. Boston -- Boston
Game Nineteen – Naptown vs. No Coast – No Coast
Game Twenty – Middlesbrough vs Paris -- Paris
Game Twenty One – Ohio vs Jet (my two favs) – Ohio will win though.
Game Twenty Two – Columbia vs Tucson -- Tucson
That’s all for the playoffs.
For the Championship, here is my order for the winners
1st – Ohio
2nd – Jet
3rd – Tucson
4th – Columbia
5th – Dublin
6th – Boston
8th- No Coast
9th – Middlebrough
10th – Naptown
11th – Bear
12th – OKVD
On Sunday, we will figure out how well I did.
