(20) OHRG DEFEATS (30) MADISON, FALLS TO (9) WINDY CITY

The Ohio Roller Girls managed to take their season record to 5-4 while competing at Midwest BrewHaHa by splitting bouts this past weekend.  Their victory over the Mad Rollin’ Dolls of Madison, Wisconsin, and loss to the Windy City Rollers of Chicago put their overall BrewHaHa record to 6-4.    (20) OHIO SPOILS BREWHAHA FOR THE (30) DAIRYLAND DOLLS 226-182 For their first bout of the weekend, the Ohio Roller Girls were paired against a familiar foe in (30) Madison’s Dairyland Dolls.  Although Ohio had defeated Madison in their previous two match-ups, both were very close bouts with the OHRG winning by 20 and 26 points respectively.  The contest at BrewHaHa lived up to the previous match-ups, as both squads played extremely physical on both offense and defense.  The bout started well for Ohio as The Smacktivist posted an 8-0 jam over Madison veteran Mouse.  Points were sparse over the next five jams until a 7 point jam by Madison’s Magic Missile gave the Dairyland Dolls their first lead, 15-11.  Madison wouldn’t have time to enjoy that lead as Ohio’s Jesse "Ava Tarr" Fox, Amy Spears, Lora "Outa My" Wayman, and Zee "Loraine Acid" Gulertekin paved the way for Kitty Liquorbottom’s 24-0

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

NAPTOWN FALLS TO OHIO 106-232, QUALIFIES FOR PLAYOFFS

The (17 DNN, 18 WFTDA) Naptown Roller Girls were in desperate need of a bout to qualify for the 2013 playoffs after the unexpected cancellation of their June bout, leaving them one Division I bout away from qualifying for playoffs (primarily due to their bouts against Cincinnati and Windy City being unsanctioned). True to their motto of “Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime,” the (23 DNN, 20 WFTDA) Ohio Roller Girls agreed to play the ladies from Indianapolis at their Columbus practice facility Wednesday night.  Even with the bout scheduled on short notice, both squads were able to field their primary teams as Ohio soundly defeated Naptown 232-106.  The bout and victory for Ohio not only ensured that Naptown would be playing in the post-season, but it was a bout Ohio wanted after losing to Naptown 86-222 with a short roster at last year’s Thrill of the Spill. The bout kicked off as Ohio’s Phoenix Bunz was sent to the box for a back block on the third jam. Unopposed, Naptown’s Maiden America snatched an early 8-1 lead for the visiting Tornado Sirens.  The following jam placed Naptown’s G-Rocket in the box as Burnadeath and Amy Spears forced a track cut.  The power jam for
