(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

(23) OHIO ROLLER GIRLS UPEND (22) STEEL CITY 246-162

In one of the most anticipated bouts of April, the (23) Ohio Roller Girls defended their home track against the visiting (22) Steel City Steel Hurtin' crew from Pittsburgh 246-162.  The bout was actually a lot closer than the score indicates, but Ohio was able to take full advantage of their power jam time.  While Ohio only enjoyed two more power jams than Steel City, they were able to outscore their visitors 171-65 with the jammer advantage. Steel Hurtin' was hindered even before the start of the bout, as 'Snot Rocket Science and Hurricane Heather were not rostered for the contest. The bout started as Steel Hurtin's Hard Times took the line against Ohio's Phoenix Bunz.  Hard Times was sent to the penalty box for a high block and Bunz capitalized by scoring 20-0.  Hard Times was again boxed on the second jam for an illegal re-entry to the track and then an insubordination penalty for not leaving the track quickly enough, and  Ohio's The Smacktivist tallied a 30-0 jam as a result.  Three jams later, Ohio's Loraine Acid took advantage of a broken skate by Steel Hurtin's jammer, The Crippler, and scored 40-0, taking Ohio to 92-2 only 9:00 into the
