(34) Ohio Battles (48) Naptown Roller Girls in Season Ending Triple Header
Ohio and Naptown’s Tornado Sirens will take the track in a rematch of a bout played in Indianapolis back in April. In that bout, Ohio held a slim lead at halftime before a second half comeback by the Sirens secured the win for Naptown, 182-132. Their bout against Ohio was one of three non-sanctioned bouts Naptown played during their 14 bout, 2015 season. Including those three non-sanctioned bouts, Naptown has an overall record of 7-6, with the upcoming bout against Ohio being their fourteenth contest.
After slipping in the rankings, The Tornado Sirens will be playing at the WFTDA Division 2 Playoffs in Detroit on August 28-30th. Naptown started the season ranked as high as 26th in the WFTDA but tough losses to Charm City, Arizona, Arch Rival, and Detroit caused the slide to where they currently sit in the rankings. However, don’t let the fact that Naptown is now in Division 2 and ranked lower than Ohio fool you. In fact, Naptown still holds the advantage over Ohio with a 4-2 overall record against the local squad including that victory earlier this season. Alongside the added pressure of trying to beat a team that has historically had their number, the Ohio Roller Girls will also look to keep their 10 game home win streak intact, as they have not lost a home bout since May 2014.
After the OHRG and the Tornado Sirens bout, Gang Green will take the track for their season finale against Naptown’s reserve squad, the Warning Belles. Gang Green currently has a 4-9 record this year while the Warning Belles are at 6-5. This bout will also be a rematch from a game played earlier this season, with the Belles claiming a 205-79 victory.
