(22) Ohio Squares Off Against (14) Charm City

With the tenth season of the Ohio Roller Girls currently underway, the Columbus-based skaters have hit the track running to celebrate a decade of derby in central Ohio.  With most teams in the WFTDA playing just at or under ten bouts per season, the Ohio Roller Girls will play over twenty games this year as they continue to play anyone, anytime, anywhere.  Their 2015 season starts with ten bouts over nine weeks with trips to Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Florida on their early season docket. The OHRG are currently 2-1 this season with a home opener victory over Tri-City Roller Derby (Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario) 257-122, and on the road in Michigan to the Killamazoo Derby Darlins 282-118.  Ohio suffered their first loss last Sunday during a hangover bout with the Detroit Derby Girls, 90-233.  The Ohio Roller Girls will look to stay above .500 as they welcome traditional WFTDA powerhouse Charm City (Baltimore) this weekend for their second home bout of the season. Long-time fans of OHRG will continue to recognize familiar names and faces like Amy Spears, Bigg Rigg, Kitty Liquorbottom, The Smacktivist, and Lora Outa My Wayman as these skaters are among the many veterans still on the team. However, Ohio

OHRG Goes 1-1 on the Road

The (23) Ohio Roller Girls ended their 1,050 mile road trip with a decisive victory at Richmond (VA) over River City’s Poe’s Punishers 278-68, and with a disheartening loss in Baltimore (MD) to the (12) Charm City All-Stars 132-232. (23) OHRG DEFEATS RIVER CITY 278-68; THE SMACKTIVIST SCORES 115 POINTS Under the new divisional system the WFTDA has established this season, the Ohio Roller Girls are comfortably within the top 40 teams that make up Division I.  Currently ranked #75, River City is in Division II, needing to climb as high as #40 in order to qualify for the Division I playoffs.  A victory, or close loss, would have moved River City closer to that divisional cutoff.  The dreams of an upset over higher-ranked Ohio would not be in the cards for Poe’s Punishers as OHRG dominated the bout both physically, on the penalty board, and - most importantly - on the scoreboard. Ohio started the bout quickly as The Smacktivist scored the first of many double-digit jams throughout the contest, a twelve-pointer in the second jam that gave Ohio the lead 15-1.  Points were at a premium over the next six jams, but OHRG continued to lead 22-7 with 22:15 remaining in

(23) OHRG ROADTRIP: RIVER CITY AND (12) CHARM CITY

This weekend, the Ohio Roller Girls will travel 1,052 round-trip miles for a tough double-header on the road against two teams they have only faced once before.  The #23 in the world Ohio squad will first lace their skates in Richmond, Virginia. They will be welcomed by the #75 River City Rollergirls, where Poe’s Punishers look to put the first notch in Ohio’s loss column in 2013.  OHRG will then drive up I-95 and take on a heavily favored #12 Charm City Roller Girls squad on Sunday in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ohio Roller Girls are currently 6-0 in 2013 and recently came off a huge win over a higher ranked Steel City squad earlier this month (246-162).  The trip to Richmond will mark the second time the Ohioans will face the River City girls as River City came to Columbus last season for OHRG’s 2012 home opener.  Outsized, OHRG fought their way to a 126 point victory in front of the home crowd, 196-70. This season, River City’s Poe’s Punishers are 1-4, but have played higher caliber teams than in previous seasons.  They started their 2013 season with a narrow 13 point loss to the Carolina Rollergirls (177-164).  Carolina was the only
