(47) Ohio to Host Northern Neighbors (37) Ann Arbor

With their home season well underway following a decisive victory over North Star Roller Derby in March, Ohio Roller Derby gears up for game two against Ann Arbor Roller Derby (Ann Arbor, MI) in what has become a yearly matchup. The teams have met twice now, each taking away a win: Ohio opened their 2016 home season with a 244-139 win against the Brawlstars, and Ann Arbor pulled off a 193-124 victory when hosting the Columbus squad last June. Ann Arbor went 4-6 in regular season play in 2017 before making their second postseason appearance and finishing out the year with two losses at the 2017 WFTDA Division 1 Playoff in Seattle. The Brawlstars kicked off their 2018 season with a trip to Buffalo, NY, where they lost an unsanctioned game to Queen City Roller Girls on March 24th. In addition to the trip to Ohio this weekend, they will also travel to South Carolina at the end of April for the fourth annual Southern Discomfort invitational, hosted by Columbia Roller Derby, and to the inaugural Udder Chaos tournament hosted by Mad Rollin’ Dolls (Madison WI) in May.

This Saturday, the Ohio Roller Derby hosts Tri-City Roller Derby from Kitchener, Ontario, in a battle as both squads look to make the jump back into Division 1. In WFTDA, teams ranked 1-40 fall into the Division 1 playoff structure at the end of the season, with teams between 41-60 placed in the Division 2 playoffs. Ohio, currently ranked #41 after the most recent WFTDA rankings release, should jump back into the 30s next month as they look to continue their presence in the Division 1 postseason. Tri-City is currently ranked #47 and needs some favorable outcomes over the next few months to work their way back into the top 40. Currently 2-1 in their 2016 campaign, the Tri-City Thunder opened the season as a participant at Quad City Chaos, a weekend invitational hosted by Toronto Roller Derby in mid-March. At Quad City Chaos, the Thunder were victorious over Roller Derby Quebec 193-139, and against the Toronto All Stars 207-158. The Thunder’s lone setback at Chaos was against the Queen City Roller Girls, 209-71, a team they’ll have a rematch with in May at the Tri-City-hosted Beaver Fever Invitational. According to their schedule, Tri-City only has a handful of bouts remaining
