(19) Ohio To Host (33) Queen City and Hammer City Roller Girls

This weekend will mark the third time in as many years the Queen City Roller Girls (Buffalo) will face off against the Ohio Roller Girls, with the visitors looking for their first ever victory over the Columbus squad.  They first met at Toronto’s Quad City Chaos in 2013 where Ohio was victorious 211-125.  Ohio followed that up with a victory at home last season 239-109.  Currently 3-2 in sanctioned play this season, the Ohio Roller Girls will look to stay above .500 as they still have twelve bouts on their regular season schedule.  The OHRG are looking to snap a two-game skid that saw them lose a non-sanctioned bout to Naptown (Indianapolis) 182-132, then to Boston 281-136.  If history is any indication of how Ohio will fare this weekend, the outlook is good for the home squad.  Since June 2010, the Ohio Roller Girls are 29-1 with home track advantage, with their sole loss coming last season to Atlanta. Whereas Ohio has won their two previous bouts by a comfortable margin over Queen City, this bout has the feeling of a contest that could go either way.  The Buffalo squad has steadily improved over the past two seasons, making the WFTDA

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

CRG AND A2D2 INVADE COLUMBUS

This Saturday, the #24 Ohio Roller Girls will look to exact revenge on the only squad to defeat them in the regular season last year when OHRG amassed a WFTDA record-setting 21-1 win/loss total.  The sole blemish in the loss column for Ohio came at the hands, and skates, of the Carolina Rollergirls midway through last year at Dorton Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.  In that bout, Ohio was missing two key players in Phoenix Bunz and HellionBOI, as Kitty Liquorbottom wore the star nearly every other jam.  As the final whistle blew in Raleigh, the Carolina Rollergirls took the win by a mere 15 points.  The 15 point loss could have been considered a moral victory for Ohio, as OHRG jammers were only able to obtain lead status 12 times out of the bout’s 43 jams.  A rematch was inevitable and the only question left unanswered would be if the follow-up bout would be just as exciting as the original. Both Ohio and Carolina have already earned post-season berths, as the points earned in this bout will go toward next year’s rankings.  Ohio will play in Ft. Wayne (IN) the first weekend of September against Arch Rival in the first
