OHIO FALLS JUST SHORT IN INDY, 140-163

At the end of Saturday's bout in Indianapolis, the announcer proclaimed it “the most exciting bout” the Naptown Tornado Sirens had all year. Unfortunately, it was not as exciting as the Ohio Roller Girls (4-2) would have liked. Penalties were nearly Ohio's salvation: Naptown (5-1) accrued thirty-one of them, against just eighteen for Ohio. But like the proverbial double-edged sword, it was penalties at key moments in the bout that led to Ohio's doom. Naptown stormed out of the gates, running up a 39-8 tally in the first ten jams. Ohio stopped the bleeding behind power jams by Kitty Liquorbottom and The Smacktivist, then climbed back into the game by hard-fought increments. An eighteen-point, five-on-two power jam by Zee "Loraine Acid" Gulertekin brought Ohio within eleven points with just under two minutes left in the first half, but Siren jammer Maiden America finished off the half two jams later with a nine-point run, and Naptown led 83-67 at the half. Ohio came off the line breathing fire in the second half. Ohio's penalty kill, behind ferocious blocking by Lora "Outa My" Wayman and Ena Flash, kept the Siren jammers at bay while the Ohio jammers slashed through the opposing blockers en route

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 Controls The French Broads 304-90

GANG GREEN CONTROLS THE FRENCH BROADS 304-90; SHRED HEAD JOINS THE CENTURY CLUB WITH 105 POINTS In the day’s opening bout, Ohio’s Gang Green got things started for the home fans as they soundly defeated the French Broads, the visiting Blue Ridge Rollergirls’ reserve squad.  Despite the final score being quite lopsided, the bout itself was very entertaining.  It featured fifteen power jams, three lead changes, Shred Head joining the elite century club by scoring over 100 points, and those in attendance witnessing an astounding number of different jammers wearing the starred helmet cover; of the 28 rostered skaters between the two squads, 19 different skaters played in the jammer position at least once in the contest. The bout started as French Broads’ jammer Beer Wench tallied three for the visitors, but was called for a track cut as the jam ended.  The subsequent power jam allowed for Gang Green’s Elektra Magneto to create the bout’s first lead change 10-3.  The bout was relatively constant for the next five jams as Gang Green held the lead 24-8 with 21:45 remaining. A track cut to Ohio’s TactiGal put the French Broads on a power jam during the eighth jam of the half.  Beer Wench used the advantage

(23) Ohio Welcomes the Blue Ridge Rollergirls; Game Moved to Lausche Building

This Saturday, the (23) Ohio Roller Girls welcome the Blue Ridge Rollergirls All-Stars from Asheville, North Carolina.  Also in action, Gang Green will lace their skates against Blue Ridge’s reserve squad, the French Broads.  Currently posting a record of 7-2 during their 2013 campaign, the Ohio Roller Girls are thankful to be back on their home track after playing three consecutive bouts on the road, two of which were against teams ranked ahead of them in the WFTDA standings. After defeating higher ranked Steel City at home in early April, OHRG traveled 1,050 miles as they visited River City (Richmond, VA) and (13) Charm City (Baltimore, MD).  The Ohioans were victorious against River City, but lost by an even 100 points to Charm City after being tied at halftime. This past weekend, Ohio upped their mileage again by traveling 836 miles to play the (12) Arch Rival Roller Girls (St. Louis, MO).  Missing key players Ava Tarr and Kill Basa, OHRG found it difficult to claim a road victory as they fell 108-179 this past weekend.  Bolstered by the return of Outa My Wayman as a full-time All Star player, the Ohio squad looks to get back to their winning ways this

Gang Green Splits Road Trip

Playing with a short roster, Gang Green broke even with a record-breaking 448-40 win against River City’s Uncivil Warriors and a slim loss to Charm City’s Female Trouble 185-200. GANG GREEN DEFEATS THE RIVER CITY UNCIVIL WARRIORS 448-40; ELEKTRA MAGNETO (117) AND BIGG RIGG (104) BOTH ECLIPSE CENTURY MARK In an attempt to salvage a victory in front of their home crowd, the River City Uncivil Warriors took the track against Ohio’s Gang Green in the second bout of the afternoon.  Much like the charter team who played before them, Gang Green was nearly perfect as they not only scored the most points by any team to ever play in the Greater Richmond Convention Center, but they also scored the most points in Gang Green team history.  During their 448-40 win, Gang Green had two jammers eclipse the century mark (Elektra Magneto with 117 and Bigg Rigg with 104), which is another first for either Gang Green or for Ohio’s charter team. Gang Green obtained lead on the bout’s first three jams.  Two consecutive jammer penalties to River City’s Barbie Beretta and Cindy Boo Who lead to jams of thirty-five, twenty-five, and twenty points for Bigg Rigg, Paige Bleed, and Elektra Magneto respectively.
