DUAL WINS FOR OHIO AGAINST BRANDYWINE

Rolling with renewed momentum following their trip to the Skate to Thrill invitational, Ohio Roller Derby returned to the Ohio Expo Center to spar with Brandywine Roller Derby, a first-time matchup for the two leagues. (35) OHIO SUBDUES (48) BRANDYWINE, 248-108 With 4 sanctioned games already under their skates this year, Ohio has begun to coalesce and fine tune their defense, giving them the leg up on the Brandywine Belligerents, who had not played a game since the 2016 International WFTDA Division 2 championship game last November. A short Brandywine roster also benefited Ohio, as mounting penalties and foul outs became an additional obstacle late in the second half. The Belligerents posted the first 4 points of the game, but Val Holla lit up the pack for 18 points in the second jam, giving Ohio a lead that they would never relinquish. Three jams later, Slammerhead forced Lurz Lemon into a track cut penalty, gifting Ohio the first power jam opportunity of the game and a 9-point gain; Brandywine found their own power jam moments later, grinding out 14 points after Ohio lost lead status on a low block call. Blitz Lemon and Lurz Lemon faced off, with lead going to Brandywine, but

GANG GREEN TRUMPS THE DESTRUCTION DAMES 250-93

While it wasn’t as bad as Gang Green’s 308-70 victory over the Demolition City Destruction Dames earlier this season, the 250-93 defeat of the Dames in Columbus last weekend had pretty much the same feel.  At first it appeared Gang Green might have a battle on their hands as Demolition City kept the bout tight for the first five minutes thanks to charter team members Godjilla and Jetsy Rockette playing with the reserve squad.  However, a 17-0 jam by Blitz Lemon on the period’s sixth jam gave Gang Green a lead they would never relinquish.  Lemon would have a career bout as she led all scorers with 122 points, nearly half of Gang Green’s total, thus earning her Most Valuable Jammer for Gang Green. Equally as impressive as Lemon’s performance on the jammer line was the physical play by Gang Green’s pack.  In the first half, the Destruction Dames were able to obtain lead jammer ten times of the twenty-four jams.  Tough defensive Gang Green walls stymied Dames jammers, and more often than not, kept them on their initial pass.  With only 54 points at halftime for the Dames, Gang Green’s defense only allowed a 5+ point jam twice in the

GANG GREEN SPLITS BOUTS AT BREWHAHA

The fifth annual Midwest BrewHaHa is in the books and Ohio’s Gang Green left Milwaukee sporting a 1-1 tournament record to take their overall season mark to 4-4.  On Friday, Gang Green opened a decent lead against the host squad, Brewcity Battlestars, before fending off a late comeback. Gang Green then lost a tough battle with Madison, Wisconsin’s, B-Team on Saturday morning. GANG GREEN HOLDS ON TO BEAT THE BATTLESTARS 159-140 Hop Devil started the bout quickly for Ohio as she was able to get lead jammer and post a quick 11-0 jam against Violet Femme for Brewcity.  An Ally McSqueal track cut on jam five led to the first power jam of the contest.  Starting unopposed, Busty Guns scored eleven and created the bout’s first lead change, 20-18 Brewcity.  A steady Gang Green jammer rotation of Hop, Ally, and Blitz Lemon kept the deficit to single digits until TactiGal was able to force a back block on Battlestars’ jammer Mellon Collie on the fourteenth jam of the half.  Hop Devil took advantage for Gang Green and scored 13, swinging the scoreboard back to Ohio’s favor, 42-38.   Gang Green’s lead didn’t last long as two jams later, Brewcity’s defense was able to hold

ATLANTA’S RUMBLE Bs STING GANG GREEN 277-74

After watching the Ohio Roller Girls’ charter team have a 24 consecutive home winning streak snapped by the Atlanta Rollergirls in the previous bout, Gang Green was hoping for a little revenge for their sisters in skate as they took the track against Atlanta’s reserve squad, the Rumble Bs.  Unfortunately, it was Atlanta’s two squads that left the Lausche Building with a pair of victories over Mother’s Day weekend.    As much as the skaters for Gang Green never gave up, and the home crowd applauded their efforts, the Rumble Bs simply dominated the contest from the first to final whistle.  Of the first half’s twenty-one jams, Atlanta’s reserve squad secured lead jammer nineteen times to Gang Green’s two.  Atlanta went with a five jammer rotation which kept their skaters fresh, while Gang Green primarily jammed Hop Devil, Ally McSqueal, and Blitz Lemon.  Although they played clean derby in the first half, the Gang Green jammers simply had too much working against them as the Rumble Bs repeatedly recycled on defense and formed nearly impenetrable walls over the duration of the contest.    Although they were outscored 129-43 in the first half, the Gang Green defense did show some moxie as they

GANG GREEN TAKES DOWN PLAN B (Kitchener, Ontario) 247-94

To Plan B, or not to Plan B… that was the question going into Saturday’s reserve squad battle between Ohio’s Gang Green and Tri-City’s Plan B.  The answer was simple as Gang Green brought strength, depth, and an overall dominant performance to the track as they soundly defeated the visitors 247-94.  Gang Green started slowly as Plan B took an early 8-7 lead going into the fourth jam.  A multiplayer block to Plan B’s Commander Will Wrecker allowed Blitz Lemon to score a 17-0 jam, thus creating the bout’s first (and only) lead change.  Lemon’s power jam was followed by a 14-0 jam by Hop Devil which took Gang Green’s lead to 38-8 with 22:30 remaining in the first period. A string of eight straight lead jammers for Gang Green allowed the home squad to go on an 86-4 run over Tri-City and extend their lead to 93-12.  The final jam of that run saw Gang Green’s pack force a track cut to Plan B’s Slaughterhouse Streeter, which put Blitz Lemon on yet another power jam.  Lemon took full advantage of a strong pack that was able to hold Streeter on her initial pass after being released from the box and

GANG GREEN DEFEATS NASHVILLE’S BRAWL STARS 170-114

After watching the Ohio Roller Girls defeat the Music City All Stars in the previous bout, Gang Green would make it an Ohio sweep over the visitors from Nashville, Tennessee, defeating the Brawl Stars 170-114 in the season opener.  A close bout throughout the first half featured four lead changes and a slim lead at the half for Gang Green.  However, a 112-68 point second half advantage for Gang Green left little doubt late that Gang Green would take home the victory. Skating in her first bout with Gang Green, Hop Devil opened the scoring for the home squad after calling the jam 4-0.  After tying the bout on the next jam, Nashville’s Electric Boogaloo would create the first lead change after securing a 3-0.  Boogaloo’s three point jam put the Brawl Stars ahead 7-4.  The lead would not last long, as it was again Hop Devil scoring four more points that gave the lead back to Gang Green 8-7.  Points were nickel-and-dimed over the next three jams until Nashville swung the scoreboard back in their favor 16-15 with 19:00 remaining in the first period. A string of lead jammers for Nashville’s Big Banger, Electric Boogaloo, Cruella Lavelle, and Ginger Juke increased

GANG GREEN FALLS TO SHADE BRIGADE

Last season, Ohio's Gang Green handily defeated the Chicago Outfit Shade Brigade 202-85 in Columbus.  Unfortunately for Gang Green, they would not relieve the exuberance of last season’s victory as they fell to the Shade Brigade 128-199.  The first half was highlighted by big scoring runs by both squads, a 43-0 run by the Shade Brigade to start the bout and a 51-0 run by Ohio to follow.  The bout started as the Outfit’s Jenergizer Bunny got things rolling by posting a 20-0 power jam after a Paige Bleed track cut.  Outfit’s Graves added four before Ante Madder scored five after breaking her collarbone mid-jam.  Four more by Graves and ten by Scream Printer quickly took the Shade Brigade’s lead to 43-0 seven minutes into the contest. Advantageous on the power jam, Gang Green’s Burnadeath got Ohio on the board with a 20-0 jam.  The next four jams saw Gang Green’s defense hold the Outfit scoreless while allowing Burnadeath to add a 15 point power jam.  Including scores by Paige Bleed and Ally McSqueal, Gang Green took the lead 51-43 with 15:30 remaining in the first half. Gang Green’s lead didn’t last long as the Shade Brigade reclaimed the lead for good
