OHIO TOPPLES STEEL CITY

Hitting the road together for the first time in 2019, the Ohio Roller Derby All Stars and Gang Green hopped across the Ohio River to Pittsburgh for a pair of scrappy, hard-fought games against longtime opponents Steel City Roller Derby, scratching out late-game victories in both matchups. ALL STARS SQUEAK PAST STEEL HURTIN’, 181-167 Unceasing back-and-forth battle and a total of ten lead changes kept both teams on their toes for the entire sixty minutes of gameplay, but the final moments saw Ohio narrowly edging out their opponents. Catch Mikachu nicked the first point of the contest; two lead changes followed in as many jams, with Jane, Literally squeezing out of the pack for a 9-0 gain as a Steel Hurtin’ blocker picked up the first pack penalty. After swapping scoring passes for several minutes, Banana Jamma tied the score at 18-all despite strong triangulation from the Ohio defense; River Kyx then tipped the scales in favor of the home squad. Belle A. Trix took full advantage of a two-minute jam, edging through on toe stops for 8 points, but the Hurtin’ retaliated with back-to-back shutout jams, exploiting a depleted Ohio wall to widen their lead to 31-60. A team timeout allowed the

An Old Rivalry Revived

Making a quick jaunt to Pennsylvania during a mid-season lull in home games, Ohio Roller Derby will face off against long-time rivals Steel City Roller Derby (Pittsburgh, PA) on Saturday, May 18th at the Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena in Cheswick, PA. Teams of all levels from the two leagues have clashed numerous times over the past decade, with Ohio maintaining a winning average in all configurations. (84) Steel Hurtin’ played their second WFTDA-sanctioned game ever against the All Stars in December 2007 and have rematched with them six times since, including once at WFTDA Division 1 Playoffs in 2014. Their most recent meeting at the now-defunct Romp n’ Roll in Glenshaw in August 2015 saw the Steel Hurtin’ pull out a decisive 249-117 victory, but both charter rosters have undergone significant change since. The Hurtin’ challenged themselves in 2018, prioritizing road games and traveling to the United Kingdom for the Euro Clash tournament; the experience served them well, as they have slowly but steadily climbed the WFTDA rankings over the past year. With a more experienced roster in 2019, the Hurtin’ front-loaded their season and are currently 6-3. Kicking off with travel losses to Naptown and Roc City in February and March

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

(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
