Ohio Edges Out Toronto's CN Power
The OHRG All Stars kicked the weekend off with a win over CN Power. Ohio got off to a strong start, with Phoenix Bunz and the Smacktivist racking up 4 points each. Solid pack work from Ohio's Ava Tarr, Bratislava Bruiser, Loraine Acid, and Pippi RipYourStockings held CNP jammers Kookie Doe and Motorhead Molly (a former Tri-City skater) back in the first two jams.
Not to be outdone, Bambi and Motorhead Molly each respectively sped through the pack to quickly answer for CN Power, shifting the score to 12-8. Although Kookie Doe was sent to the penalty box on a track cut the following jam, Ohio's Loraine Acid had trouble with Bruiseberry Pie and Nasher the Smasher, who forced their own track cut, releasing Kookie Doe from the box. Kookie Doe successfully called off the jam despite not being lead jammer and was sent back to the box for an illegal procedure penalty.
Ohio smartly sent Phoenix Bunz to the line, who powered through the CNP pack for 26

The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is going to look a little different this year than it has in the past. New playoff formats and rule changes were put into effect following the 2012 Championship tournament in order to allow teams the off-season to become acclimated.
