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!

Champs: Recap

Hotrod Honeys vs Honky Tonk Heartbreakers

20848156446_581b35807f_bThe night began with the fight for third and fourth place, and it was checks versus gingham!

We started with Stone Her of the Hotrods jamming against Deep Dish Nitza of the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. Stone Her got lead, and got things started with a twelve point lead from the first jam. Unfortunately, the Heartbreakers never quite caught up.

Despite numerous multi-point jams by Deep Dish Nitza, Sideshow Ho, and Thugs Bunny, the Heartbreakers were never able to build momentum with their scoring.  The combination of the Hotrods’ jamming lineup of Jackie Daniels, LaVoodoo, Olivia Shootin’ John, Legal Knievel, Stone Her, and Kategory 5, in addition to their defensive line, was too much for the Heartbreakers, who fought tooth and nail for the points they scored.  

Two Heartbreakers took their bows: Headless Highness bench coached, having retired earlier in the season, and Babe Ruthless skated her last bout.

The final score was 307 – 80, in favor of the Hotrods.


Hustlers vs Hell Marys

20686535078_682aa0f86d_bIf there is one phrase that sums up this match up, it is this: “Contentious blocking.”

The Hells were thirsty to defend their title, and the Hustlers were hangry to reclaim it. The game started with Fifi Nomenon jamming against Freight Train, a matchup we saw frequently through the rest of the game. Nicki Tick Timebomb and Wild Carnage handled most of the rest of the jamming duty for the Hustlers, with Malice stepping in sometimes too. Brown Buttah, Mini Massacre, and Babyface Assassin took up most of the jamming for the Hells. (Special mention must be given to Babyface Assassin’s GIANT HEADS in the crowd! Further proof that Local 666 works overtime for their team!)

This bout was exciting! Full of lead changes in the first half, and every pack demonstrating astounding blocking techniques. However, two-thirds of the way into the first half, the Hustlers took lead and never gave it back. Fifi Nomenon got lead an incredible six times in a row, though her most notable jam involved the very jammer star being knocked from her head by the Hells! 

20899281292_487a9bf200_bBoth teams had members retiring, giving both of them extra incentive to win one last game for the road. Brown Buttah of the Hell Marys played her final game against retiring Hustlers, Killer Crouton, Scrape Myrtle, and Bad Influence. 

The final score was 245-145, in favor of the Hustlers.
