OHIO FAILS TO BRING HOME TOWN WIN AGAINST ATLANTA, 117-261

Just days prior to the Ohio Roller Girls All Stars facing off against the Atlanta Rollergirls Dirty South Derby Girls, the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association released updated April rankings.  While Ohio held their place at #20, Atlanta fell five spots to #15.  When the two teams played last year, they were slightly farther apart in ranking, with Ohio at #23 and Atlanta at #15.  As Ohio has proven before, rankings alone can't predict a game's outcome. After last year’s away game loss to Atlanta of 186-247, could Ohio turn the tables at home? The Smacktivist took the jammer line for Ohio first, matched up against Jammunition from Atlanta. With the help from blockers like Queen Loseyateefa and Switchblade Siouxsie frustrating Ohio’s players, Atlanta was able to draw first blood.  They put 33 points on the board in the first few jams, despite hard defensive work from Ohio blockers such as Jesse “Ava Tarr” Fox and Zee “Loraine Acid” Gulertekin. In the fourth jam, Lora “Outa My” Wayman came out of the penalty box with a vengeance and pulled Atlanta jammer Jean-Juke Picard into a low block penalty as the jam was called.  This was Ohio’s first power jam and The

OHIO FALLS JUST SHORT IN INDY, 140-163

At the end of Saturday's bout in Indianapolis, the announcer proclaimed it “the most exciting bout” the Naptown Tornado Sirens had all year. Unfortunately, it was not as exciting as the Ohio Roller Girls (4-2) would have liked. Penalties were nearly Ohio's salvation: Naptown (5-1) accrued thirty-one of them, against just eighteen for Ohio. But like the proverbial double-edged sword, it was penalties at key moments in the bout that led to Ohio's doom. Naptown stormed out of the gates, running up a 39-8 tally in the first ten jams. Ohio stopped the bleeding behind power jams by Kitty Liquorbottom and The Smacktivist, then climbed back into the game by hard-fought increments. An eighteen-point, five-on-two power jam by Zee "Loraine Acid" Gulertekin brought Ohio within eleven points with just under two minutes left in the first half, but Siren jammer Maiden America finished off the half two jams later with a nine-point run, and Naptown led 83-67 at the half. Ohio came off the line breathing fire in the second half. Ohio's penalty kill, behind ferocious blocking by Lora "Outa My" Wayman and Ena Flash, kept the Siren jammers at bay while the Ohio jammers slashed through the opposing blockers en route

GANG GREEN DISMANTLES MOTOR CITY DISASSEMBLY LINE 220-76

It was only eight months ago that Gang Green traveled to Detroit and suffered a close loss at the hands of the Motor City Disassembly Line 118-155.  Not wanting to relive the same outcome in front of their home crowd, Gang Green played a clean game and simply dominated their counterparts at the Ohio Building this past weekend 220-76. The MCDL obtained lead the first two jams of the contest and briefly held a 2-0 lead before Gang Green took over and never looked back.  After trailing 0-2, Paige Bleed and Bigg Rigg scored jams of 10 and 15 respectively for a 25-2 swing.  Gang Green jammers were able to obtain lead over the next five jams and increased their lead to 40-2.  A couple of jams later, forearm and back block penalties to MCDL’s Ghetto Barbie allowed Blitz Lemon to nearly double Gang Green’s score with a 30 point power jam. Nearly halfway through the first period, Gang Green started to pull away, 70-12.  Jammer penalties began to hurt Detroit’s reserve squad as Midnight Vulture found herself in the box for two penalties that spanned three jams.  First, a track cut allowed Gang Green’s Burnadeath to score a 20-0 power jam.
