OHIO BRINGS THE HEAT AGAINST BUFFALO’S LAKE EFFECT FURIES, 239-109

After the last few games away from home, the Ohio Roller Girls were happy to return to the Lausche Building to take on Queen City Roller Girls’ Lake Effect Furies from Buffalo, NY.  The last time these two teams faced off, the Furies found themselves on the losing end. While Ohio is ranked #22 in the WFTDA to Buffalo's #48, OHRG were still prepared to meet strong opposing players from northern New York. With The Smacktivist up against Queen City’s Librawlian in the first jam, it could have been a strong start for either team.  Mack was able to take lead and the first four points of the game before calling the jam off.  Thanks to smart blocking by Zee “Loraine Acid” Gulertekin, Burnadeath, and Ena Flash, that four point lead would only increase, never allowing space for a lead change.  In fact, it took until the fifth jam for Queen City to get on the scoreboard, courtesy of Librawlian.

(22) OHIO WELCOMES BUFFALO’S (48) QUEEN CITY ROLLER GIRLS

GET TICKETS TO TOMORROW'S BOUT HERE. The (22) Ohio Roller Girls had something this past week that they haven’t had in quite a while… a week off.  Coming off a three bout stint in Boston two weeks ago, OHRG will be back within the friendly confines of the Lausche Building as they welcome in Buffalo’s Queen City Roller Girls this Saturday evening.  Our Columbus squad returned from Massachusetts with a 2-1 weekend record as they upset (11) Boston 223-190, defeated New Hampshire 208-100, and nearly upset (12) Montreal 196-164 (note: following last weekend, the new rankings were released and Boston and Montreal are now ranked #17 and #16 respectively).  Overall, the Ohio Roller Girls All Stars are 7-5 in 2014. The Queen City Roller Girls will make the 5.5 hour drive to Columbus this weekend before they too enter the final stretch of their 2014 season.  The Lake Effect Furies will also have a little revenge on their minds, as they were defeated by the Ohio Roller Girls last year in Toronto at the Quad City Chaos tournament, 211-125.  Although the point differential at the end of that bout was 86 points, Queen City trailed Ohio by only 24 points halfway through
