Quad City Chaos 2015 a smashing success

This past weekend Toronto Roller Derby hosted the 6th edition of Quad City Chaos, and it was the biggest and most successful and entertaining one yet!

  • The biggest, as for the first time we held 9 games over the weekend – 6 WFTDA-sanctioned games, and 3 regulation B-team games
  • The most successful – some of the closest games ever at this tournament, with the biggest sanctioned-game point spread only 55 points (CN Power vs Boston Massacre)
  • The most entertaining, with multiple lead changes in almost every game, and incredible hits! Such as this one captured by George Pelekis and posted on his TOderby flickr page, of CN Power’s Lady Gag-Ya taking out Steel Hurtin’s Snot Rocket Science, who through sheer force of will manages to stay in bounds and keep going:

The results

Sanctioned Games
As mentioned, this weekend’s 6 WFTDA-sanctioned games had some of the tightest scores we’ve ever seen at Quad City Chaos, with multiple games being decided only in the dying minutes. With all 4 teams currently ranked in the top 40 of the WFTDA (and Rideau Valley clearly showing that their #39 slot is only temporary and that they do indeed belong in Division 1), every game was an unpredictable battle. This weekend was noteworthy also as the first time since 2012 (and only the second QCC ever) that CN Power went undefeated at 3-0 in their own tournament. The scores:

Game 1: #39 Rideau Valley Vixens 165142 #29 Steel Hurtin’
Game 2: #28 Toronto CN Power 229174 #25 Boston Massacre
Game 4: #25 Boston Massacre 169127 #29 Steel Hurtin’
Game 5: #28 Toronto CN Power 186154 #39 Rideau Valley Vixens
Game 7: #25 Boston Massacre 182159 #39 Rideau Valley Vixens
Game 6: #28 Toronto CN Power 235191 #29 Steel Hurtin’

B-team Regulation Games
In B-team action, the Bay Street Bruisers continued their undefeated run at Quad City Chaos, although that streak was in serious jeopardy in their second game against the Boston B-party, who led for the majority of the game, with the Bruisers pulling off the come-from-behind victory on the final jam. The scores:

Game 3: Toronto Bay Street Bruisers 253144 Rideau Valley Sirens
Game 6: Toronto Bay Street Bruisers 184180 Boston B-Party
Game 8: Toronto Bay Street Bruisers 31969 Steel Beamers

MVPs

There were so many options for MVPs for this year’s Quad City Chaos. There were 4 awarded – a blocker and a jammer from the A-team games, and a blocker and a jammer from the B-team games.

A-team MVPs

A-team MVP Blocker: Nic Rollfiliac, Steel Hurtin’
