(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

OHRG Goes 1-1 on the Road

The (23) Ohio Roller Girls ended their 1,050 mile road trip with a decisive victory at Richmond (VA) over River City’s Poe’s Punishers 278-68, and with a disheartening loss in Baltimore (MD) to the (12) Charm City All-Stars 132-232. (23) OHRG DEFEATS RIVER CITY 278-68; THE SMACKTIVIST SCORES 115 POINTS Under the new divisional system the WFTDA has established this season, the Ohio Roller Girls are comfortably within the top 40 teams that make up Division I.  Currently ranked #75, River City is in Division II, needing to climb as high as #40 in order to qualify for the Division I playoffs.  A victory, or close loss, would have moved River City closer to that divisional cutoff.  The dreams of an upset over higher-ranked Ohio would not be in the cards for Poe’s Punishers as OHRG dominated the bout both physically, on the penalty board, and - most importantly - on the scoreboard. Ohio started the bout quickly as The Smacktivist scored the first of many double-digit jams throughout the contest, a twelve-pointer in the second jam that gave Ohio the lead 15-1.  Points were at a premium over the next six jams, but OHRG continued to lead 22-7 with 22:15 remaining in
