Gang Green Muted by Warning Belles

Looking to take after their Charter Team counterparts, Ohio’s Gang Green also aimed to avenge an earlier season loss to Naptown.  Unfortunately for Gang Green, the season split was not to be, as Naptown’s Warning Belles were victorious, 181-129, in a bout that wasn’t quite decided until the final few jams.  The bout started strong for both teams as Naptown jammers Pirouette Threat, Scorpiopathic, and Lysis 2 Kill obtained lead status on five of the bout’s first six jams.  With that type of advantage, teams would typically rack up an abundance of points; however, Naptown was only able to capitalize minimally due to Gang Green’s strong defense.  Slammerhead, Garden of Beatin’, Adams and KloverKill bent but didn’t break as they allowed no more than four points each jam and only trailed 15-2 after six jams. Points were nickel-and-dimed for the majority of the bout as Gang Green jammers TactiGal, Karmabal Lector, HellionBOI, and Blitz Lemon basically matched those posted by their competitors.  With 7:00 remaining in the first half, Naptown held a slim three-point lead 41-38.  Strong defense by Warning Belles blockers Crash N2U, Eve Anne Hellical, and Flannery O’Clobber was then able to hold Karmabal Lector on her initial pass

GANG GREEN NEUTRALIZES BURNING RIVER’S HAZMAT CREW 219-84

As the Ohio Roller Girls celebrated their tenth anniversary this weekend, it was Gang Green that turned things up to eleven as they provided that little extra oomph during a 219-84 victory over visiting HazMat Crew, the reserve squad from Burning River Roller Derby.  Following what was a close bout during the first seven jams, Gang Green was able to capture the lead in the eighth jam and never look back.  Stout defense by Gang Green blockers Quiet Storm, NiCold N Deadly, Zinnia Zombie, and Garden of Beatin repeatedly held back HazMat jammers while opening holes for their own jammers throughout the first half. After finding themselves down 19-20 after jam seven, Val Holla put Gang Green ahead with a 9-0 jam of her own.  Toeing the inside line off the jam start in the next jam, KloverKill added an additional 4-0 to increase Gang Green’s lead to 32-20.  Powerful subsequent jamming by Gang Green’s HellionBOI, Karmabal Lector, and Blitz Lemon paired with even better blocking by Gang Green’s pack players enabled the home squad to go on a 48-5 run that spanned nine jams and thirteen minutes.  With 9:30 remaining in the first half, Gang Green held a 67-25 lead. 

Gang Green Collapses Pittsburgh’s Steel Beamers 174-127

After watching the Ohio Roller Girls charter team take down the Steel Hurtin’ 216-191, Gang Green did everything they could to make sure their bout against Pittsburgh’s reserve squad wouldn’t be as close.  It’s always a tough match when Steel City and Ohio meet, and Gang Green quickly found themselves in a battle that made the several hundred spectators in attendance cheer for the efforts put forth by everyone involved.  The first ten jams of the contest went back and forth between Gang Green and the Steel Beamers.  Jams lasted an average of one minute, and just ten minutes into the bout, the two reserve squads exchanged leads a total of five times.  With 19:15 remaining in the first period, Gang Green clung to a slim 24-17 lead.    On the period’s eleventh jam, Gang Green’s Sarah Bruce rattled off a 20-0 power jam with Shrinking Violet in the penalty box for a high block.  Two jams later, it was Val Holla knocking Hot Lips Bruise’ihan out of bounds, allowing HellionBOI the opportunity to get lead and secure a 2-0 jam.  Hellion’s jam took Gang Green’s lead to 54-18.  Clean play by both squads over the next ten jams didn’t yield

GANG GREEN SPLITS BOUTS AT BREWHAHA

The fifth annual Midwest BrewHaHa is in the books and Ohio’s Gang Green left Milwaukee sporting a 1-1 tournament record to take their overall season mark to 4-4.  On Friday, Gang Green opened a decent lead against the host squad, Brewcity Battlestars, before fending off a late comeback. Gang Green then lost a tough battle with Madison, Wisconsin’s, B-Team on Saturday morning. GANG GREEN HOLDS ON TO BEAT THE BATTLESTARS 159-140 Hop Devil started the bout quickly for Ohio as she was able to get lead jammer and post a quick 11-0 jam against Violet Femme for Brewcity.  An Ally McSqueal track cut on jam five led to the first power jam of the contest.  Starting unopposed, Busty Guns scored eleven and created the bout’s first lead change, 20-18 Brewcity.  A steady Gang Green jammer rotation of Hop, Ally, and Blitz Lemon kept the deficit to single digits until TactiGal was able to force a back block on Battlestars’ jammer Mellon Collie on the fourteenth jam of the half.  Hop Devil took advantage for Gang Green and scored 13, swinging the scoreboard back to Ohio’s favor, 42-38.   Gang Green’s lead didn’t last long as two jams later, Brewcity’s defense was able to hold

GANG GREEN TAKEN DOWN BY NAPTOWN WARNING BELLES, 88-185

Ohio’s Gang Green started and ended strong against Indianapolis’s Naptown Warning Belles on Saturday. It was the middle part of the bout that caused them trouble. Gang Green jammer Hop Devil, who jammed thirteen times and won three leads (23%), breezed through the pack to gain the lead on the first jam. Nicold N Deadly (thirteen jams, five leads (38%)) overcame a low block on the second jam to gain a come-from-behind lead in the second, thanks to a stellar effort by her blockers to keep Belle jammer The Bitter End in the pack. TactiGal (six jams, three leads (50%)) followed with yet another lead on the third jam, and Hop Devil finished Ohio’s brief period of dominance by fighting off a forearm penalty to gain the lead in the fourth jam. I say “brief period” because the four jams combined netted a total of four points for Gang Green, and they were the last points Ohio would get for another six jams. The rest of the first half was all Warning Belles. The trouble started in the fifth jam, when jammer Nicold N Deadly was called for a cut while in the pack. She was called back to the track after the

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.
