Pre-Game Rundown: Home Teams Bout 3

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.

thugsFirst 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.

maliceThe 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.

faceThe 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.

boThe 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!

The Texas Rollergirls welcome you back to our home, The Bloodshed, THIS Saturday, April 9. Doors open at 5:15, and the first whistle blows at 6pm. Make sure you arrive early to tailgate in the parking lot, and get inside for a good seat. This is a family-friendly event with food trailers out back, and full bars inside. The bout is likely to sell out, so purchase tickets early. We can’t wait to see you trackside. Love ya till it hurts!

Pre-Game Rundown: All-Star Bouts

Hello fans of the Texas Rollergirls! Thank you for coming out earlier this month to support your favorite home team. We are giving them a bit of a break and showcasing our All Star teams for you this Saturday. This is a “low production” bout, so it will be a little less crazy, and a little more intimate, but still a LOT of hard hitting, highly skilled roller derby action. We can’t wait to show you what the best of Texas has to offer.

miniFirst up, beginning at 6pm, is our still undefeated, North American B-Team Champions, The Firing Squad. Don’t let the classification “B Team” fool you; these ladies are incredibly talented, disciplined, and mean business on the track. They are taking on Houston Roller Derby’s All Star Team, and will be bringing their “A” game.

Under the leadership of captains Virgo Vengeful and MariEZ Livin’, and coaches, Kelli and Prancing Johnny, The Firing Squad are ready to handle whatever Houston throws at them in this first bout of their 2016 season. We have some recent additions to the Firing Squad roster, ready to step it up and skate are Nine Lives, Impending Doom, Alley Oops, and Mona Vaydid. BabyFace Assassin, Mini Massacre, and Gravy, Baby! will be doing the bulk of the jamming, so watch out for them destroying Houston walls, and building a big lead for Texas.

Houston Roller Derby’s All Star Team is a solid competitor for our Firing Squad. They are led by captains 2XForce and Jekyll & Heidi, and are currently ranked 48th in the WFTDA. Watch out for Nikkity Split, Rainbow Fright, Bustin Beaver, and everyone’s favorite, Death by Chocolate.

For our second bout of the night, we have an extra special treat for you. Our all-star Texecutioners will play… themselves! That’s right, this is a Texie on Texie, black vs white, good ol’ fashioned, flat track roller derby scrimmage. The Texecutioners are currently ranked 5th in the WFTDA, so get ready to see some of the best roller derby the world has to offer!

bloodyThis will be your first chance of 2016 to see our All Star Only (ASO) skaters. These ladies have worked hard, and earned the privilege of stepping off their home team to focus only on representing the Texas Rollergirls on the world stage. Barbara Ambush, Bloody Mary, Polly Gone, and Smarty Pants are some of the cleverest skaters in the game. Watch them leading their packs, and making quick decisions to spring their jammer.

Did you know that Texas boasts FOUR current/former members of Team USA roller derby on our roster? That’s right! Our very own Smarty Pants, Trauma, Jackie Daniels, and Polly Gone have all helped the good ol’ US of A win gold in the Roller Derby World Cup. They are all strong, intelligent players who bleed roller derby. Make sure you snap a selfie with one if you can catch her!

We welcome you back to our home, The Bloodshed, THIS Saturday, March 26. Doors open at 5:15, and the first whistle is at 6pm. This is a “low production,” intimate bout, so make sure you get tickets in advance, as there will be less released, and it’s a guarantee sell-out. We can’t wait to show you what the best of Texas has to offer. Love ya till it hurts!

Pre-Game Rundown: Second Bout

How about that opening bout, rollerfans? Our bruises have healed, and we are ready to bring you more hard-hitting action THIS Saturday, March 5 at our home, The Bloodshed. The second event of 2016 will feature two full-length bouts, plus two very special celebrity guests. The National Anthem will be performed by the talented Angie Munsey of local punk rock band The Beat Dolls. Our opening whistle-blower is Tawny Hammond, Director of the Austin Animal Services. We are proud to have these two amazing women at our bout, so make sure you get there early to see them!

fifiThe first bout of the evening, beginning at 6pm, will feature both of the winning teams from February’s opening games. Someone will come out of this challenge undefeated in 2016, and both the Hotrod Honeys and Hustlers will be fighting for those bragging rights. The Hustlers are reigning champs from 2015, and will do all they can to keep up that winning streak. Watch for fan favorite Fifi Nomenon and new Texecutioner Kill ‘Ems to be powerful triple threats: smart, fast, and strong in any position on the track. The ladies in purple will be relying on teamwork and communication in the pack. Nobody has better teamwork than Chicka Chicka Bam Bam and McKilla Queen; keep your eye on them working together, and playing smart. The Hustlers are known for keen blockers that lay devastating hits, and Me Shove You Long Time, Doom, and CC Boom will be doing a haul of that work for the team.

legalThe Hotrod Honeys are ready to face this fierce Hustlers squad. With the smallest roster in the league, they know how to play together better than anyone. Any skater on this team can jam, and the ability to play in any position is invaluable. They do, however, also possess the majority of the all-star Texicutioner jammers with Hauss the Boss, Olivia Shootin’ John, and Stone Her. Legal Knievel, Kategory 5, and Jackie Daniels are also very difficult to slow down with the star, and all will be challenging the Hustler defensive walls. LaVooDoo and Slamdra Dee are keen captains, and will be pulling out all stops to keep their team undefeated in 2016. Do not miss the first bout of the evening starting at 6pm!

peaceStick around for Saturday’s second bout which will begin around 7:45pm, and is featuring our two teams looking for their first home win of the season. The Hell Marys will come out strong with their trademark jammer-soul-crushing walls. Watch for Angela Momentum, Freight Train, and Virgo Vengeful working to stop the Heartbreakers on their wheels. Triple-threat PeaceWar might be the skater to watch out for in this game. She is quick with an unpredictable style that leaves her opponents wondering what hit them. Gravy, Baby! will out there racking up points for the Hell Marys, and she, along with Mini Massacre plan to make the Heartbreaker defense really work to slow them down.

dankeThe Honky Tonk Heartbreakers have been focusing on their strong defense to shut out those Hell Mary jammers. Twin blockers Fender Bender and Ruby! seem to share one brain on the track, and can be impossible to get by. Watch out for captains Booty Queen and Shiner Blond along with Cold Case holding solid defense along with quick, punishing, offensive hits. New-to-the-league jammer, Mona Vaydid, has proven to be a sound edition to the Heartbreakers. She, along with everyone’s favorite Aussie, Sideshow Ho, will be challenging the Hell Mary defense, and putting points on the board. Do yourself a favor, and stick around for the second bout of the evening.

We welcome you back to our home, The Bloodshed, THIS Saturday, March 5 for our second double header of 2016. Doors open at 5pm, and we suggest getting there early to find a good spot. This bout will sell out, so purchase tickets in advance here. This is going to be an exciting season, and we are happy to share it with you! Love ya till it hurts!

Pre-Game Rundown: 2016 Season Opener

Greetings rollerfans, and welcome to the Texas Rollergirls 2016 season! We have had a productive offseason, and look forward to seeing you this Saturday, February 13 at our home, The Bloodshed. Our home team opening day will include two full-length bouts along with some hilarious half time entertainment brought to you by the Double Dog App.

hotsBout one is a rematch of 2015’s third place battle between the Hotrod Honeys and the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. Both teams have something to prove, and this game will not disappoint. The Hotrods handily defeated the Heartbreakers to end last season and plan to start 2016 by doing the same. The retirement of TXRG founding member Lucille Brawl is a huge loss to the ladies in black and pink, but they won’t let that slow them down. The Hotrods picked up triple threat Nine Lives as an interleague transfer. Watch for her solid pack play, and maybe even some time with the star. They have both all-star Texecutioner captains in their ranks, and Jackie Daniels and Stone Her are both physical players, solid in any position. Watch for smart pack play from blockers Bo Jacks’em and MariEZ Livin’; these ladies will be making things difficult for the Heartbreaker jammers.

joThe best thing about starting in last place, is that you have nowhere to go but up, and the Heartbreakers have their gold and gingham hearts set on moving straight to the top! Since winning champs in 2013, the Heartbreakers have spent the last two seasons rebuilding and restructuring their team. Fresh from an international roller derby win in South Africa, they are ready to take on the Hotrod Honeys. Fan favorite Flash Gorgeous is back after taking a two-season break, and she hasn’t missed a beat. In addition to Flash, the Heartbreakers have picked up three new skaters for the 2016 season. Maeby comes straight from our Rec League program, and is strong, smart, and ready for her first premier league bout. Transfers Mona Vaydid and Vivian LeighEmOut are joining the Heartbreaker jammer rotation along with Thugs Bunny, Scornbread, and Firing Squad superstar Sideshow Ho. Don’t miss this exciting first bout beginning at 6pm!

freightThe second game of the evening, beginning around 7:45pm, is a rematch of the 2015 Championship bout. The Hustlers will be defending their first place status against a hungry-for-revenge Hell Marys. This is guaranteed to be an exciting and hard-hitting game, so make sure you stick around! The Hell Marys have picked up interleague transfer and Team USA skater, Trauma. She will be doing some serious work in the pack, along with blockers Sandy Ravage, Dolores Fuertes, and the Mad Hatcher. Fan favorite, and Firing Squad jammer Brown Buttah retired at the end of 2015, but the ladies in plaid have a strong jammer rotation ready to fill her skates. Blink and you’ll miss super-fast BabyFace Assassin and Mini Massacre, and keep your eyes on the incredible footwork of force-to-be-reckoned-with Freight Train.

nickiReigning champs, The Hustlers are not going to be easy to take down in 2016. They are led by two captains with incredible derby brains, Impending Doom and Nicki Ticki Timebomb. This self-described “weird” team in purple is anchored by formidable Texicutioner blockers Bittercup, CC Boom, and Molotov M. Pale. Their packs are strong, smart, and take no prisoners. They have added four new skaters to their ranks this season. Grit, Grendel Gruesome, and Alley Oops come from our own TXRG Rec League, and Kill ‘Ems is a recent transfer to Texas. Calling them “rookies” would be selling these ladies short; they are strategy-savvy, strong, and prepared to do their part to keep the Hustlers on top.

We look forward to seeing you at our 2016 home opener THIS Saturday, February 13, at The Bloodshed. Doors open at 5pm, and we suggest getting there early to secure a spot. This bout will sell out, so buy your tickets in advance here. This is a family-friendly event with an interactive half time show, so bring your Valentine, your best friend, your mom, and your kids! Love ya till it hurts!
