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 FALLS TO TORONTO’S BAY STREET BRUISERS

In the much anticipated rubber match between Ohio’s Gang Green and Toronto’s Bay Street Bruisers, it was the home squad BSB who took the victory in the third matchup played at Quad City Chaos.  Gang Green was victorious 163-107 two years ago, but the Bay Street Bruisers were able to even the series at the 2013 Quad City Chaos tournament 207-112.  In what has become a budding rivalry, Gang Green fell in the third encounter over the weekend 302-94.    Gang Green traveled with a new lineup to Quad City Chaos that featured three skaters who were not only making their international debut, but their Gang Green debuts as well.  Rookies Tasha Cookies, Lita Fuse, and Hope Dela Vega all made the trip to Canada for their first real derby action with Ohio and all three played extremely well.  The Bay Street Bruisers got out to a quick start, holding Gang Green scoreless over the first three jams 13-0.  Jammer penalties on both sides in the fourth jam boosted the BSB lead to 23-9. Throughout the first fifteen minutes of the bout, jammers on both sides were content to play “hit and quit” derby, calling the jam off after one scoring

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 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. 

Gang Green Controls The French Broads 304-90

GANG GREEN CONTROLS THE FRENCH BROADS 304-90; SHRED HEAD JOINS THE CENTURY CLUB WITH 105 POINTS In the day’s opening bout, Ohio’s Gang Green got things started for the home fans as they soundly defeated the French Broads, the visiting Blue Ridge Rollergirls’ reserve squad.  Despite the final score being quite lopsided, the bout itself was very entertaining.  It featured fifteen power jams, three lead changes, Shred Head joining the elite century club by scoring over 100 points, and those in attendance witnessing an astounding number of different jammers wearing the starred helmet cover; of the 28 rostered skaters between the two squads, 19 different skaters played in the jammer position at least once in the contest. The bout started as French Broads’ jammer Beer Wench tallied three for the visitors, but was called for a track cut as the jam ended.  The subsequent power jam allowed for Gang Green’s Elektra Magneto to create the bout’s first lead change 10-3.  The bout was relatively constant for the next five jams as Gang Green held the lead 24-8 with 21:45 remaining. A track cut to Ohio’s TactiGal put the French Broads on a power jam during the eighth jam of the half.  Beer Wench used the advantage
