Congratulations, Texecutioners!

We’d like to congratulate our all-star Texecutioners on winning the South Central Regional Playoffs this weekend!

When the Texies went into the playoffs, they were ranked #2 in our South Central Region. Friday night they took on Lincoln, Nebraska’s No Coast Derby Girls, ranked #7 in the region, and won 274-64.

Saturday, they played the Nashville Rollergirls, who were ranked #3 in our region, and won 218-75.

As a result of these wins, the Texecutioners earned a spot in the championship game and on Sunday evening, they faced off against long standing rivals, the Kansas City Roller Warriors, who were ranked #1 in the South Central Region heading into this tournament. The bout was a closely matched, back and forth game (and if you’re the kind who played the “lead change drinking game” then you LOVED this bout!) but the Texies turned up the heat within the last five minutes of the bout and won 132-92!

Thank you to all of our fans who joined us as Fado Irish Pub for our watch parties this weekend, and thank you to Fado for hosting us!

We’ve received a flood of support from teams and skaters and fans all over the world – thank you for the love!

Our Texies will be training hard as they look towards the Championships in Colorado, November 11-13. If you want to make the trek to Denver to cheer them on, check out information here. Otherwise, keep an eye out here (as well as on our Facebook and Twitter) for Championships watch party details.
