Predicted score: Glasgow 151 : 150 Auld Reekie

Actual score: Glasgow 163 : 187 Auld Reekie

In what was predicted to be a close game, it certainly delivered. Auld Reekie were able to capitalise on some penalties late on in the second half and take a 24 point win. This result means that Auld Reekie will move up to 6. Glasgow will drop down to 9, not only as a result of this game but also due to Tiger Bay’s win.

Actual score: Tiger Bay 107 : 113 Glasgow

A very low scoring, close game had Glasgow come in to the last jam with a one point advantage. Tiger Bay lost but only by 6 points, a much smaller gap than the rankings predicted. Tiger Bay will move up one place on the rankings.

At half time the result was very much in Glasgow’s favour as that had a lead of around 50 points but Stockholm’s focus in the second half allowed them to take a big lead over the Scottish team.

Predicted score: Glasgow 200 : 25 Gent

Actual score: Glasgow 181 : 137 Gent

Gent played a hard fought game against Glasgow and were really able to minimise the damage. The close result after such a large predicted points differential means Gent will find themselves safely in the top 20. However, Glasgow will lose their recent number 4 position and drop 1 spot.

Glasgow finished with a perfect tournament, having won all of heir games against higher ranked opponents.

Predicted score: Glasgow 108 : 100 Stuttgart

Actual score: Glasgow 324 : 57 Stuttgart

Glasgow absolutely dominated over Stuttgart in what was predicted to be a close match up between teams 9 and 10 on the rankings. Such a big win for Glasgow should see them comfortably enter the top 5 whereas Stuttgart can be expected to drop down a few places out of the top 10.

London Rockin Rollers (5) vs Glasgow (9) #GRDChaos

Date: 25th Aug 2012

Tournament: Glasgow Roller Derby Summer Tournament: Chaos on the Clyde

Predicted score: London Rockin Rollers 135 : 100 Glasgow

Actual Score: London Rockin Rollers 114 : 168 Glasgow

With the home-field advantage, Glasgow start their tournament off with an upset over number 5 London Rockin Rollers. There were a lot of penalties from both teams but ultimately Glasgow were able to stay in control and take the win. London Rockin Rollers can expect to drop down a place and Glasgow can expect see themselves rise to a safer spot in the top 10. Though nothing is for certain as there are still many games left to play in this tournament so we can expect to see many changes in the top 10 before the September rankings are released.
