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

(20) Ohio Hosts (10) Atlanta this Saturday for Mother’s Day Melee

This Mother’s Day weekend, roller derby fans in Columbus will be treated to an exciting bout featuring two squads that made it to last season’s WFTDA World Championship tournament.  Both the (20) Ohio Roller Girls and the (10) Atlanta Rollergirls occupied two of the twelve spots at Champs, having played their way through stiff competition at separate Division 1 Playoff locations.  Both squads had such a good showing at Champs that they were both victorious in their opening round bouts with Ohio defeating Rat City (Seattle), and Atlanta defeating London (UK).   The Ohio Roller Girls are still feeling the sting of a close loss at Naptown (Indianapolis) last weekend where they fell to the Tornado Sirens 163-140.  The defeat added a second tally in the loss column for the OHRG and pushed their overall 2014 record to 4-2.  The Naptown bout also kick-started a grueling six week endurance test in which the Ohio Roller Girls will play a total of seven bouts, five of which will be against teams ranked above them.  Their bout against Atlanta will be their toughest to date this season, with their schedule only getting harder from here on out.  Whereas OHRG has been playing consistently since

Gang Green Controls The French Broads 304-90

GANG GREEN CONTROLS THE FRENCH BROADS 304-90; SHRED HEAD JOINS THE CENTURY CLUB WITH 105 POINTS In the day’s opening bout, Ohio’s Gang Green got things started for the home fans as they soundly defeated the French Broads, the visiting Blue Ridge Rollergirls’ reserve squad.  Despite the final score being quite lopsided, the bout itself was very entertaining.  It featured fifteen power jams, three lead changes, Shred Head joining the elite century club by scoring over 100 points, and those in attendance witnessing an astounding number of different jammers wearing the starred helmet cover; of the 28 rostered skaters between the two squads, 19 different skaters played in the jammer position at least once in the contest. The bout started as French Broads’ jammer Beer Wench tallied three for the visitors, but was called for a track cut as the jam ended.  The subsequent power jam allowed for Gang Green’s Elektra Magneto to create the bout’s first lead change 10-3.  The bout was relatively constant for the next five jams as Gang Green held the lead 24-8 with 21:45 remaining. A track cut to Ohio’s TactiGal put the French Broads on a power jam during the eighth jam of the half.  Beer Wench used the advantage

(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

Gang Green Splits Road Trip

Playing with a short roster, Gang Green broke even with a record-breaking 448-40 win against River City’s Uncivil Warriors and a slim loss to Charm City’s Female Trouble 185-200. GANG GREEN DEFEATS THE RIVER CITY UNCIVIL WARRIORS 448-40; ELEKTRA MAGNETO (117) AND BIGG RIGG (104) BOTH ECLIPSE CENTURY MARK In an attempt to salvage a victory in front of their home crowd, the River City Uncivil Warriors took the track against Ohio’s Gang Green in the second bout of the afternoon.  Much like the charter team who played before them, Gang Green was nearly perfect as they not only scored the most points by any team to ever play in the Greater Richmond Convention Center, but they also scored the most points in Gang Green team history.  During their 448-40 win, Gang Green had two jammers eclipse the century mark (Elektra Magneto with 117 and Bigg Rigg with 104), which is another first for either Gang Green or for Ohio’s charter team. Gang Green obtained lead on the bout’s first three jams.  Two consecutive jammer penalties to River City’s Barbie Beretta and Cindy Boo Who lead to jams of thirty-five, twenty-five, and twenty points for Bigg Rigg, Paige Bleed, and Elektra Magneto respectively.
