OHIO CROSSES THE BORDER FOR QUAD CITY CHAOS

The #22 Ohio Roller Girls will invade Canada for the second straight year this weekend as they participate in Quad City Chaos, hosted by  Toronto Roller Derby.  Ohio will compete in three bouts over two days against #17 Montreal, #29 Toronto, and #42 Bleeding Heartland.  Last year’s Quad City Chaos was the first ever fully WFTDA sanctioned event held in Canada, with three of this year’s teams making return trips for the event.  As previously mentioned, this will be Ohio’s second trip to the event, following an impressive 3-0 record at last season’s QCC with wins over Toronto, Rideau Valley, and Queen City.  This will be the fifth consecutive year for Toronto serving as host league, where they have amassed an 8-4 record at the event.  Montreal will be making their third appearance at Quad City Chaos.  After going 6-0 at the event in 2010 and 2011, the New Skids on the Block took a couple of years off before coming back for bouts against Ohio, Bleeding Heartland, and Toronto.  They will be the highest ranked team competing in Toronto this weekend.  This will be Bleeding Heartland’s first trip to Quad City Chaos.     #22 Ohio vs #17 Montreal Looking at the schedule

GANG GREEN DEFEATS NASHVILLE’S BRAWL STARS 170-114

After watching the Ohio Roller Girls defeat the Music City All Stars in the previous bout, Gang Green would make it an Ohio sweep over the visitors from Nashville, Tennessee, defeating the Brawl Stars 170-114 in the season opener.  A close bout throughout the first half featured four lead changes and a slim lead at the half for Gang Green.  However, a 112-68 point second half advantage for Gang Green left little doubt late that Gang Green would take home the victory. Skating in her first bout with Gang Green, Hop Devil opened the scoring for the home squad after calling the jam 4-0.  After tying the bout on the next jam, Nashville’s Electric Boogaloo would create the first lead change after securing a 3-0.  Boogaloo’s three point jam put the Brawl Stars ahead 7-4.  The lead would not last long, as it was again Hop Devil scoring four more points that gave the lead back to Gang Green 8-7.  Points were nickel-and-dimed over the next three jams until Nashville swung the scoreboard back in their favor 16-15 with 19:00 remaining in the first period. A string of lead jammers for Nashville’s Big Banger, Electric Boogaloo, Cruella Lavelle, and Ginger Juke increased

(22) OHIO WELCOMES (39) NASHVILLE IN SEASON OPENER

The 2013 season finally came to a close in early November for the Ohio Roller Girls.  It was a season of focused determination that ultimately resulted in the OHRG’s first ever trip to the WFTDA Championship tournament.  Twelve teams made it to Champs, and Ohio was the lowest seed (#21) ever to qualify under the current WFTDA rankings system.  Every time Ohio set a goal this season, they accomplished that goal.  They wanted to make it to the Division 1 playoffs, and they did.  They wanted to finish in the top three at playoffs to secure a spot at Champs, and they did.  They wanted to win a bout at Champs to prove they belonged, and they did.  Ohio defeated the Rat City Roller Girls 230-212 before falling to the eventual world champions, Gotham Girls Roller Derby.  As successful as 2013 was for the Ohio Roller Girls, the skaters and coaches can’t rest on that success to carry them through the 2014 season.  With the losses of powerhouses Phoenix Bunz and Pippi RipYourStockings, as well as coaches Great Scott and BFF to retirement, Ohio has apparently stuck to their “anyone, anywhere, anytime” mentality as they assembled their 2014 schedule.  OHRG

GANG GREEN FALLS TO SHADE BRIGADE

Last season, Ohio's Gang Green handily defeated the Chicago Outfit Shade Brigade 202-85 in Columbus.  Unfortunately for Gang Green, they would not relieve the exuberance of last season’s victory as they fell to the Shade Brigade 128-199.  The first half was highlighted by big scoring runs by both squads, a 43-0 run by the Shade Brigade to start the bout and a 51-0 run by Ohio to follow.  The bout started as the Outfit’s Jenergizer Bunny got things rolling by posting a 20-0 power jam after a Paige Bleed track cut.  Outfit’s Graves added four before Ante Madder scored five after breaking her collarbone mid-jam.  Four more by Graves and ten by Scream Printer quickly took the Shade Brigade’s lead to 43-0 seven minutes into the contest. Advantageous on the power jam, Gang Green’s Burnadeath got Ohio on the board with a 20-0 jam.  The next four jams saw Gang Green’s defense hold the Outfit scoreless while allowing Burnadeath to add a 15 point power jam.  Including scores by Paige Bleed and Ally McSqueal, Gang Green took the lead 51-43 with 15:30 remaining in the first half. Gang Green’s lead didn’t last long as the Shade Brigade reclaimed the lead for good

GANG GREEN ROOKIES HOST CORD

Ohio’s Gang Green rookie crew invited second year team Central Ohio Roller Dolls from Mt.Vernon to Columbus for a closed scrimmage on Tuesday night. I'm proud of our ladies, CORD had some really strong walls. Though CORD was missing their star jammers, the blockers pulling double duty never said die! - Chainsaw Central Ohio was set back from the start, as their top three jammers ShaSam, PB Slammer, and Slapajawea were unable to make the trip with the Dolls. It was amazing to see what the rookies could do on their own out there. They stepped it up and took charge on all fronts. It was hard to contain myself at times because I was so happy with their teamwork and communication. - Ava Tarr Up next for Gang Green, a road trip to Richmond (VA) and Baltimore (MD) to take on the River City Uncivil Warriors and the Charm City Female Trouble.  They’ll be home again on May 11th as they take on the Blue Ridge Rollergirls from Asheville, North Carolina. The Central Ohio Roller Dolls are gearing up for their season home opener this June, more info here.
