Ohio Roller Derby 2020 Season Preview

UPDATE 3/13/20: In an effort to do our part to mitigate the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus, and to follow the guidelines set forth by Governor Dewine to cancel or postpone mass gatherings, we have postponed our season opener at the Ohio Expo Center. Read about it here. After an intense interleague schedule culminating in a repeat appearance at the North America East Continental Cup, Ohio Roller Derby prioritized fun, rest, and recovery in late 2019. The league played two themed mixed-level games and then packed the stands for the annual Skatemare Before Christmas exhibition event. In January, skaters returned to strength training and skating fundamentals, ramping up for another season of exciting competition at all levels. Celebrating their fifteenth anniversary this year, Ohio returns to their home track at the Ohio Expo Center from mid-March through the end of June. While last season brought a handful of retirements and an influx of fresh skaters, the 2020 All Stars roster remains largely unchanged from the 2019 postseason. Captained by Amy Spears, Kelsey Khaos, and Vyles, veteran players Betty Me-Owww (formerly Betty T. KayO), Bigg Rigg, Birch Slap, BrussKnuckles, Catch Mikachu, Chainsaw, and KloverKill also return. A strong core of experienced crossover

GANG GREEN FALLS TO SHADE BRIGADE

Last season, Ohio's Gang Green handily defeated the Chicago Outfit Shade Brigade 202-85 in Columbus.  Unfortunately for Gang Green, they would not relieve the exuberance of last season’s victory as they fell to the Shade Brigade 128-199.  The first half was highlighted by big scoring runs by both squads, a 43-0 run by the Shade Brigade to start the bout and a 51-0 run by Ohio to follow.  The bout started as the Outfit’s Jenergizer Bunny got things rolling by posting a 20-0 power jam after a Paige Bleed track cut.  Outfit’s Graves added four before Ante Madder scored five after breaking her collarbone mid-jam.  Four more by Graves and ten by Scream Printer quickly took the Shade Brigade’s lead to 43-0 seven minutes into the contest. Advantageous on the power jam, Gang Green’s Burnadeath got Ohio on the board with a 20-0 jam.  The next four jams saw Gang Green’s defense hold the Outfit scoreless while allowing Burnadeath to add a 15 point power jam.  Including scores by Paige Bleed and Ally McSqueal, Gang Green took the lead 51-43 with 15:30 remaining in the first half. Gang Green’s lead didn’t last long as the Shade Brigade reclaimed the lead for good
