Ohio Roller Derby 2019 Season Preview

After a postseason trip to the North America East Continental Cup last August and a fun-filled season of intraleague play that culminated in the revival of the fan-favorite Skatemare Before Christmas game, Ohio Roller Derby enjoyed a well-deserved off-season. Now, with renewed minds and increased strength, they return once more to their home track at the Ohio Expo Center in 2019, gearing up for their fourteenth year of competition against old rivals and new challengers alike. Twelve skaters from the 2018 playoffs roster return to the All Stars roster this season: Amy Spears (captain), Betty T. KayO, Bigg Rigg, Birch Slap, BrussKnuckles, Kelsey Khaos, KloverKill, Pain Train, and Vyles, as well as crossover skaters Belle A. Trix, Smash Panda (formerly known as Jane Goodfall), and TactiGal. After spending last season coaching, Chainsaw rejoins the pack, and recent transfer Catch Mikachu will provide additional versatility in the jammer pool. New to All Stars but certainly not to the track, Baby Kakes, Jane, Literally, Lara Del Rage, Jonny No, and Oxford Coma join in pulling double duty for both the A and B squads. Already retaining a solid veteran core, Gang Green welcomes a robust rookie class and a few additional transfer skaters

(51) Ohio Ready to Duel with (58) Dub City

Returning to Columbus after a challenging tournament weekend in Canada, Ohio Roller Derby will make new friends and renew a long-time rivalry as they welcome teams from Dub City Roller Derby (West Palm Beach, FL) and Steel City Roller Derby (Pittsburgh, PA) for the second-to-last home doubleheader of the 2018 season on Saturday, June 9th. A full member league of the WFTDA since the end of 2014, (58) Dub City had a busy and successful season last year, playing half of their sanctioned games at the Clover Cup and Mayday Mayhem tournaments and going 8-2 overall. While The Resistance have scaled back their travel for 2018, only scheduling four sanctioned games, their opponents are no less challenging. Currently 0-2, their season kicked off in late March with a 122-166 loss to Columbia Roller Derby at the 2018 Franky Panky invitational. Over Memorial Day weekend, Dub City took a home track loss to Sailor City Rollers (Buenos Aires, Argentina), who stopped in Florida on their way to the 2018 Besterns tournament in Colorado. The Resistance will make equally wise use of their trip north, playing the Ohio Roller Derby All Stars for the first time on Saturday before making the drive down

OHIO SPLITS GAMES AT STEEL CITY

For their last travel game of the 2015 regular season, the (34) Ohio Roller Girls ventured east to Pittsburgh for a double header against (29) Steel City Roller Derby.   GANG GREEN BOLTS PAST STEEL BEAMERS, 225-166 “Small but mighty” was truly the theme of the evening for a short-rostered Gang Green, who were not initially predicted to take the victory over SCRD's Steel Beamers, but arrived in Pennsylvania determined to upset that prognosis just as they did in Nashville last month. The Beamers were able to put up 3 points in the first jam for a quick lead--the only time they would have it during the contest. Gang Green's HellionBOI answered with a 15-point power jam as SCRD's jammer left the track on a forearm penalty, and another power jam in jam 5 allowed her to widen the Ohio lead to 41-5. A string of jammer penalties provided plenty of opportunity for both teams to try to score unopposed, but tough defense kept gains low until a double track cut call on SCRD's Inga Kneeher allowed Karmabal Lectur to put up 20 unanswered points for Gang Green. With a power jam start, Blitz Lemon continued the momentum, adding another 13 points and
