ATLANTA’S RUMBLE Bs STING GANG GREEN 277-74

After watching the Ohio Roller Girls’ charter team have a 24 consecutive home winning streak snapped by the Atlanta Rollergirls in the previous bout, Gang Green was hoping for a little revenge for their sisters in skate as they took the track against Atlanta’s reserve squad, the Rumble Bs.  Unfortunately, it was Atlanta’s two squads that left the Lausche Building with a pair of victories over Mother’s Day weekend.    As much as the skaters for Gang Green never gave up, and the home crowd applauded their efforts, the Rumble Bs simply dominated the contest from the first to final whistle.  Of the first half’s twenty-one jams, Atlanta’s reserve squad secured lead jammer nineteen times to Gang Green’s two.  Atlanta went with a five jammer rotation which kept their skaters fresh, while Gang Green primarily jammed Hop Devil, Ally McSqueal, and Blitz Lemon.  Although they played clean derby in the first half, the Gang Green jammers simply had too much working against them as the Rumble Bs repeatedly recycled on defense and formed nearly impenetrable walls over the duration of the contest.    Although they were outscored 129-43 in the first half, the Gang Green defense did show some moxie as they
