Gang Green Falls to the St. Lunachix
Once the dust settled from the charter bout between the Ohio Roller Girls and the Arch Rival All Stars that came down to the final jam, it was up to Gang Green and the St. Lunachix to settle an overall 1-1 record against each other in a pivotal rubber match. Fielding a team with under ten skaters, Gang Green called upon veterans Bigg Rigg and Paige Bleed to help out in the battle of reserve squads. Also of note, this bout marked the return to action of original OHRG member, HellionBOI, as she laced her skates for the first time in over a year due to the rehabilitation of a knee injury.
Even with the assistance from Rigg and Paige, the four jammer rotation of Chokehold Chanel, Enya Nightmare, Molecular Mayhem, and Warpath O’Jen was more than enough for the St. Lunachix to keep their jammers fresh and rested. With nothing to lose, Gang Green threw everything, and everyone, at the St. Louis squad, including nine different jammers. Gang Green was able to hang with the St. Lunachix throughout the first half after drawing five jammer penalties on the home squad and only trailed 128-74 at the half. Unfortunately for the Ohioans, the St. Lunachix played much cleaner in the second while Gang Green themselves sent their own jammer to the penalty box five times over the final 26:00 of the bout.
In a valiant effort, Gang Green’s pack of TactiGal, Blitz Lemon, Quiet Storm, Elektra Magneto, Rigg, and Bleed were able to hold St. Louis to only three double-digit jams during the second period. Also showing signs of a bright future for Ohio was T. Wrex, an OHRG rookie who made her debut but hasn’t played this season due to an injury sustained pre-season. The 230-108 loss dropped Gang Green’s record to 6-7. Both Ohio and Gang Green will next take the track this weekend against Cincinnati’s Black Sheep and Violent Lambs.
Jamming for Gang Green was: Bigg Rigg (0-6, 31 pts), Blitz Lemon (4-10, 18 pts), Elektra Magneto (1-3, 17 pts), TactiGal (4-5, 16 pts), Paige Bleed (2-6, 13 pts), HellionBOI (6-11, 12 pts), Pi-Thon (1-4, 1 pt), Zinnia Zombie (0-1, 0 pts), and Quiet Storm (0-4, 0 pts).
