Over the course of the tournament, the Denver Roller Dolls (3rd seed) and the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls (6th seed) switched places in the ranks. Denver was expecting to go to Championships in 3rd place, so the loss to the BAD Girls was particularly hard.
The loss was made worse by a questionable call by the officials. At one point, split pack was called, at which point, the BAD defense should have let the Denver jammer through, giving her four more points. But they didn’t, and the frustrated jammer called off the jam. Denver lost the bout by 4 points.
