(20) Ohio Outduels (16) Detroit 196-147

Depending on which ranking system you looked at Saturday morning, either the (#23 DNN, #20 WFTDA) Ohio Roller Girls or (#24 DNN, #16 WFTDA) Detroit Derby Girls could have been considered the underdog in search of an upset against their opponent.  Historically, Detroit has had Ohio’s number, posting a 3-0 record over the ladies from Columbus.  Unfortunately, you can’t have a rivalry if one team always wins.  The Ohio Roller Girls broke the streak and snatched their first ever victory over the visitors from Motown this weekend 196-147 to secure their second victory over a higher ranked team this season. In one of the best bouts of the season, those at the Ohio Building saw seven lead changes, a jam that included a star pass and four jammer penalties, and Detroit’s Racer McChaseHer get through the pack on her initial pass after losing two wheels on her left skate.  Both teams had something to prove after BrewHaHa where Detroit dropped two bouts to Windy City and Arch Rival, and Ohio suffered a big loss at the hands of Minnesota.  With only one more ranking released before playoffs, it was obvious from the start that both squads were ready to leave everything

(23) Ohio Falls to (13) Arch On the Road

Both Ohio squads traveled to St. Louis this past weekend to challenge the Arch Rival Roller Girls at Midwest Sport Hockey at Queeny Park, in St. Louis. The last two times Arch and Ohio have met, OHRG earned wins; they were unable to make it a trio this past weekend. OHRG fell to Arch 108-179. Gang Green fell to the Arch Rival Roller Girls' St. Lunachix, 70-242. You can read Muckety Muck's full game recaps on the Arch Rival website. Photos by the inimitiable Bob Dunnell.
