Hello Texas Rollerfans! We hope you enjoyed that intense Firing Squad game last month. Did you like the extra special Texie vs Texie face off? We sure did, and are so proud of our talented all-star teams! Your favorite home teams are back this Saturday, April 9, to battle it out, and determine who will play for the championship trophy in May.
First up is the reigning champs, and still undefeated Hustlers going against the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. The Heartbreakers are done licking their wounds after a big loss to the Hell Marys last month, and are ready to get back on the track. The Heartbreakers will be relying on hardy, solid, defensive walls to slow determined Hustler jammers. Watch for captains Shiner Blond and Booty Queen blocking together with Flash Gorgeous (she only has 14 hours to save the earth!) and rookie Maeby. This could be a game for star passes, so keep an eye out for this strategy from Thugs Bunny and Mona Vaydid to pivot Scornbread. Ruby Wring just had a great game with the Firing Squad, and she is a track leader to watch out for.
The Hustlers are sitting pretty on top, but they will still have to work for the chance to defend that title on Saturday. They boast some of the baddest blockers in the league who will create walls to terrify the Heartbreaker jammers. A one-two punch from Bittercup and CC Boom can put any jammer on the ground. Me Shove You Long Time and Mostly Harmless are some of the smartest blockers in the game, and make a great duo for the ladies in purple. The Hustlers have been extending their jammer rotation this season, so you could see anyone taking the star and scoring grand slams. Watch for Malice and Young Money Mackerel jamming as well as favorites Fifi Nominon and Nicki Ticki Timebomb. Make sure you get there early to see the Hustlers take on the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers at 6pm.
Our second bout of the evening is guaranteed to be a nail-biter. The Hotrod Honeys and Hell Marys are playing for a spot in next month’s championship game. The winner of this bout will go on the play the Hustlers for the trophy in May. This is going to come down to who wants it more.
The Hell Marys are coming off of a huge win last month, and want to keep the momentum going. Captains Gravy, Baby! and Sandy Ravage both had a strong showing with the Firing Squad, and know what it takes to lead their team to victory. Hell Mary breakout star of the season, Angel O could have a big game Saturday. She has been working hard to transition into the jammer position, and is ready to show the Hotrods what she can do. PeaceWar is opening the evening by singing the national anthem, and she will be doing damage in any position on the track for the Hell Marys.
The Hotrod honeys are itching to get back to the top, and this game is a must-win for them to make that happen. The ladies in black and pink boast some of the fastest jammers in the league, and hope to capitalize on their offensive skills. Stone Her and Olivia Shootin’ John may be doing the bulk of the point scoring, but watch out for fan-favorites Hauss the Boss and Legal Knievel with the star as well. Newly rostered Texecutioner Bo Jacks’em will be a tough competitor for the Hotrods in any position, as well as captain LaVooDoo and Jackie Daniels.
The second bout is going to be edge-of-your-seat roller derby action, so make sure you stick around!
