)-- Boston Roller Derby Wins Women’s Roller Derby Division 2 Championship Tournament
Boston Roller Derby wins first place in The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) Division 2 Championship Tournament held in Pittsburgh from Aug. 18-20.
Boston’s All Stars Team, Boston Massacre, entered the tournament as a seven seed and went undefeated for five games against other top level teams from across the globe. Opponents included Pirate City Rollers of Auckland, New Zealand, Tucson Roller Derby of Tucson, Arizona, Naptown Roller Girls of Indianapolis, Indiana, and Paris Rollergirls of Paris, France. Boston Massacre finished the weekend with a nail-biter of a championship game against Paris Rollergirls, winning 166-150. The 2017 Tournament marked Boston Roller Derby’s 11th appearance in playoff gameplay.
“The team feels ecstatic. Not only did we have an amazing and hard fought weekend, our blockers and jammers had some of the best statistics across the whole tournament,” said Aimee “Sweet Enemy” Schurmann, coach and skater for Boston Massacre. “This is a testament to our training and practices leading up to the D2 tournament.”
In addition to the gold medal win, Boston Massacre blocker Little Loca was named Tournament MVP for her overall performance throughout Boston’s five wins.
Boston Roller Derby All Stars have one last game this season against Brandywine Roller Derby of Downington, Pennsylvania. The game will take place at Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington, Massachusetts on Oct. 21, 2017.

About Boston Roller Derby: We are Boston’s first flat track roller derby league and proud members of the WFTDA. Boston Roller Derby has been skating their hearts out since May 2005 when a group of ambitious women began training at hockey rinks throughout greater Boston. They became one of the founding members of WFTDA and held their debut game in March 2006. Over the past decade, BRD has grown into a league with three interleague teams: The Boston Massacre (A Team), the Boston B Party (B Team), and the Boston Common (C Team), along with four intraleague (or home) teams: the Cosmonaughties, the Harbor Horrors, the Nutcrackers and the Wicked Pissahs.
