Two weekends ago CN Power was busy busting up the flat track in the North Central and East WFTDA regions, playing two bouts in two days. The first, on Saturday the 22nd of October saw CN Power challenge Grand Raggity, currently ranked 11th in the North Central region. CN Power lost 148 – 68, but gained valuable track time against a competitive team, and a taste of what the top 10 in their region is like! On Sunday CN Power headed east and challenged the Queen City Rollergirls, ranked 14th in the East region. After a hard fought bout, CN Power pulled ahead by 10 points to take home the victory, 139 – 129. It was a great weekend of roller derby, and the close scores show that you can expect big things from CN Power in 2012.
