"After a brutal smack-down of the Ohio Roller Girls (183-5) in July, the Boston Massacre gets ready to host the Dallas Derby Devils, currently ranked 21st in the nation and 10th in their Western division, in their last home bout before the 2008 regional tournaments.
Boston has lost only one bout since their overtime loss to Detroit at the 2007 regionals—a well-matched bout against Rocky Mountain Roller Girls at ECDX in June 2008—racking up decisive wins against Dominion, Gotham Girl's Bronx Gridlock, Cincinnati, Houston, and Ohio. Meanwhile Dallas has hung tough in '08 against opponents including Albuquerque's Duke City (losing by just one point in a low-scoring 63-62 game) and Charm City (a 117-89 loss for DDD). They've also decimated opponents from northwest Arkansas, Oklahoma, and LA's Angel City.
On paper, these two teams seem able to give each other a run for their money. Will Dallas shake the Massacre's at-home winning streak, or will the pantsless militia send another Texas team packing?"
