Austin Texas Roller Derby | Texas Rollergirls » Teams News, training tips, events, and other information from the Texas Rollergirls Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:09:58 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Pre-Game Rundown: 2016 Season Opener Tue, 09 Feb 2016 20:21:42 +0000 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!

May 16: Recap Wed, 20 May 2015 18:59:32 +0000 TXRG 05.15: Hotrod Honeys vs HustlersHustlers vs Hotrods – 181-173 


The Hustlers and the Hotrods met on the track this past Saturday for the first time since last season. Anticipation was high after the mid-season draft brought new players to both teams. New faces included the high-profile transfer of Jackie Daniels from Windy City to the Hotrods (and the Texecutioners, obvs!), and Spawna Chainsaw, graduating to the Hustlers from TXRG’s Juniors program.The Hustlers took an early lead, and held it until late in the second half, when we saw not one, but FOUR lead changes! Fielding a rotation of jammers featuring Jackie Daniels, newly-returned Hauss the Boss, Stone Her, Legal Knieval, and Kategory 5, the Hotrods threw everything they had at the walls set up by the Hustlers. Both teams brought incredible game play to the Convention Center, most notably the Hustler’s defensive line, easily the strongest it has been in years.Leaning heavily on jamming by Nicki Ticki Timebomb, Wild Carnage, Molotov M Pale, and jamming more frequently than we usually see her, Fifi Nomenon, the Hustlers put up offensive just as menacing as their defense. Commanding an at least twenty-point lead for the majority of the game, things got heated in the last few minutes. With time for just a few jams left, Fifi took the line against Stone Her. who went to the box on a forearm penalty. Fifi saw her chance and took it, picking up two grand slams. A wild track cut by Stone Her at the end of that jam left Nicki Ticki Timebomb jamming unopposed.With the game clock run out, Nicki Ticki Timebomb got lead and called the jam, at a final score of 181-173.

TXRG 05.15: Hell Marys vs Honky Tonk HeartbreakersHell Marys vs Honky Tonk Heartbreakers – 389 – 158

The Hell Marys and The Honky Tonk Heartbreakers met on the track again, with the Hells showing the same ruthless dedication they used to beat the then-undefeated Hotrod Honeys in last season’s final game. While they executed some excellent defense–Booty Queen, in particular, being the only blocker who successfully held back Freight Train–the Heartbreakers’ defense was not up to the Hells’ jammers.

Freight Train, Brown Buttah, Babyface Assassin, and Mini Massacre did the lion’s share of jamming for the Hells.  Thugs Bunny, Deep Dish Nitza, Big Nasty, and newcomer Scornbread took the star for the Heartbreakers.

Remaining mostly untouchable through the whole bout, Freight Train received notable resistance from both Booty Queen and Babe Ruthless, who executed an effective hit to the inside.
The Hells provided strong defense in addition to their strong offense. Of note were the efforts of PeaceWar and, returning from retirement, Sandy Ravage.

The Hell Marys took the lead early on, and never let it go. Despite strong, multi-point jams by Deep Dish Nitza and Thugs Bunny, the Heartbreakers were never able to catch up. The Hell Marys won, 389-158.

May 16: Pre-Game Run Down! Tue, 12 May 2015 21:18:28 +0000 Are you ready to watch your favorite home teams battle it out? Saturday, May 16, we are back bigger and badder at the Austin Convention Center. We are taking an extended summer vacation this year, so make sure you see us now, or you’ll have to wait until our home team Champs in August.

hots v hustlersThe first bout of the evening will feature the undefeated Hotrod Honeys against the Hustlers. This one is guaranteed to be a nail-biter, so make sure you arrive on time. We had a mid-season draft that shook up all teams’ rosters a little, but none more than the Hotrods. The fast ladies in black have acquired roller derby’s sweetheart, Jackie Daniels, and Hauss the Boss left the Heartbreakers to return to the Hotrods. Look for both of them jamming on Saturday. Priss-n- Vinegar is the other draftee for the Hotrods. She is a triple threat, and could be utilized in any position on the track. The Hotrods are looking set to put up some big points in this game.

The Hustlers are a strongly defensive team, and will certainly give nothing to the Hotrods without a fight. They took on four new players from the mid-season draft. Impending Doom will be joining the Hustler walls, and giving the Hotrod jammers something to fight through. Recent junior roller derby graduate Spawna Chainsaw will be out there doing damage as well. The Hustlers also drafted former New Hampshire Roller Derby teammates Chicka Chicka Bam Bam and McKilla Queen. These ladies are already comfortable playing together, and will pick right back up where they left off up north. Any of these new teammates could take a turn with the jammer star along with Nicki Ticki Timebomb, who we have all learned means business on the track.

hearts v hellsThe second bout of the evening will feature the Hell Marys battling it out with the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. The Hell Marys feature several Firing Squad skaters coming off of a hugely dominating weekend at The Big O Tournament. Adding to their defensive “Circle of Death” is Sandy Ravage and Rowdy Rothbomb. Yes, Sandy Ravage came out of retirement; sometimes you just miss derby too much! Rowdy Rothbomb was recently captain of the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls’ B-Team, and will be a strong link in the Hells’ wall. Watch for rookie Gravy, Baby! wearing the jammer star more in this game, along with Babyface Assassin, Mini Massacre, and Freight Train.

The Honky Tonk Heartbreakers are looking for their first win of the season, and will come out fighting on Saturday. After losing Hauss the Boss back to the Hotrods, the Heartbreaker jammer line has seen some shake ups. Rocking the star Saturday will be The Big 3 Under 5’3”: Thugs Bunny, Big Nasty, and Deep Dish Nitza. The Heartbreakers drafted three very tall, very talented skaters. Scornbread and Cold Case will be doing work in the pack, but don’t be surprised if you see either of them taking a turn jamming in this game. Just Carol is the other Heartbreaker mid-season draftee, although you will have to wait till August to see her skate. This team is in a must-win situation, and will certainly give it everything they’ve got. Make sure you stick around for the second bout!

Our 2015 season continues THIS Saturday, May 16 downtown at the Austin Convention Center. Doors open at 5pm, the first bout begins at 6, and the second at 7:30. In honor of Armed Forces Day, we are offering $10 tickets to all active and retired military personnel with ID. Get there early, stay late, and get loud for your favorite team! Faster, Break ‘em, Hustle, Hell Yea!

Love ya ‘till it hurts.

March 7: Game Recap Thu, 12 Mar 2015 22:26:23 +0000 On Saturday, March 7th, the four teams of Texas Rollergirls returned to The Blood Shed for another evening of exciting roller derby. We knew it was going to be awesome, but we were not prepared for not one but TWO nail biters as both games included multiple lead changes and amazing plays. See below for scores and recaps!

Texas Rollergirls: Hell Marys vs HustlersHells vs Hustlers – 217-205, Final

One of the most exciting things about this game was the introduction of Freight Train to TXRG fans. Freight Train joined us recently from Houston, TX, where she skated for the Brawlers and the Houston All-Stars.

Many were excited to see what she would bring to the 2015 Hell Marys, still rebuilding after losing several skaters to retirement at the end of last season. Ladies and gentlemen, we were not disappointed.

Freight Train shared jamming duties with Peace War, Brown Buttah, and BabyFace Assassin, all of whom showed the Hustlers that they were not to be trifled with.

The Hustlers held a commanding lead until just about halftime, when Freight Train came and showed us why she’s Freight Train! (She brushed Me Shove You Long Time to the outside during one jam like it was nothing!)

After that point, it was a battle of the extremely tight defenses, both teams working beautifully.

Newcomers Nicki Ticki Timebomb and Wild Carnage jammed most frequently for the Hustlers, with veterans Molotov M. Pale and Fifi Nomenon coming in when the chips were down.

Despite a number of strong, high points jams for the Hustlers, the Hell Marys came out on top, with a very close final score of 217-205.

Texas Rollergirls: Hotrod Honeys vs Honky Tonk HeartbreakersHotrod Honeys vs Honky Tonk Heartbreakers, 197-193, Final

For our second heart stopping game, we saw the Hotrod Honeys go up against the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers.

In addition to this season’s newcomers, the exciting thing to watch in this game was former Hotrod, Hauss the Boss, going up against former Heartbreaker, DeBella DeBall.

After an early lead by the Heartbreakers, the Hotrods spent most of the game ahead of the Heartbreakers. However, by the end of the second half, the Heartbreakers were breathing down their necks!

Stone Her spent the majority of the game as lead jammer, but Hauss the Boss, Thugs Bunny, and Sideshow Ho frequently made high scoring jams.

For most of the second half, the Hotrods’ jammers racked up all the points, with the Heartbreakers having trouble against the Hotrods’ defense. In the last ten minutes of the game, however, the Heartbreakers’ jammers really did everything they could to close the gap.

In the second to last jam, Sideshow Ho brought the score to 197-193, making us all wonder if the Hotrods were in for quite the upset. It was not to be, however, when in the last jam, Stone Her got lead for the Hotrods, and because the game clock had already run down, called the jam with no more points scored for either team.

The final score stayed at 197-193, Hotrods.

TXRG megafan Phil Arnold posted this tweet, which BLEW OUR MINDS. Thanks for the history lesson, Phil!

Join us in April for an all-star double header you don’t want to miss! Our Texecutioners are taking on the all-stars from Tampa, Florida, in the first game of the night, and after that, our Firing Squad will face off against the b-team from Tampa! Come cheer on TEXAS! Get tickets now!

March 7 Pre-Game Run-Down Thu, 05 Mar 2015 00:30:05 +0000 We sure hope you were able to catch our sold out opening bout on Valentine’s Day! As promised, it brought shake ups and excitement. Don’t worry if you missed it, though, just hurry and get your tickets for our second doubleheader on Saturday, March 7.

hells vs hustlersThe first bout of the evening will be the 2014 champion Hell Marys taking on the Hustlers. In February, the Hell Marys lost to the Hotrods by 2 points in a tense back and forth, down-to-the-final-second upset, and they are looking to redeem themselves against the Hustlers. Since that upset, the Hells have picked up Houston Roller Derby transfer Freight Train. Rarely does a derby name fit a skater as well as hers. This woman can jam and block, and those who get in her way will feel the punishing blows the next day. Keep your eye on sneaky jammer BabyFace Assassin, known for her big apex jumps and even bigger grin. Watch out for Brown Buttah as well, she is a triple threat, and will be out there letting the Hustlers know she has work to do.

The Hustlers put a hurt on the Heartbreakers in the season opener, and would like to keep on crushing 2015. New jammer Nicki Ticki Timebomb hits hard, skates hard, and has earned herself respect in the game of flat track derby. Wild Carnage is also going to be giving those Hells blockers a hard time holding her back from quickly sneaking by and racking up points. The Hustlers have been working on creating dynamic, impenetrable walls, and with blockers like Me Shove You Long Time, Bad Influence, and CC Boom, the Hell Marys have their work cut out for them.

hearts v hotsThe second bout of the night will be the Hotrod Honeys taking on the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. The Hotrods pulled off an incredible win in February with a last jam, last second, 2 point victory, and are looking for another regular season winning streak. They are playing a few skaters down due to injury, but don’t let that fool you into thinking they are weak. The Hotrods are tough, and they play solidly together. Watch for Stone Her wearing the jammer star most of the night along with Kategory 5 and LaVoodoo. All three jammers have very different skating styles, and will keep the Heartbreakers guessing what might happen next. The Hotrod packs will be anchored by DeBella DeBall, and veteran Texas Rollergirl Lucille Brawl. These ladies play smart and hit hard.

Don’t count the Heartbreakers out just yet, though. Rather than licking the wounds from their season opener loss, the ladies in gingham have been working extra hard to lock down their defense. Their shrewd packs with Danke Shame, Nine Lives, and Big Nasty are playing tight enough to give even the slipperiest of jammers a tough time. Twin blockers Ruby Wring and Fender Bender are the nicest people you will ever meet, until you meet them on the track. These twins mean business. Rookie Thugs Bunny is proving herself to be a strong jammer, and Hauss the Boss always has a few tricks up her sleeve. Watch for her abs of fury racing around the track. This game could be another nail-biter for the Hotrods.

The Texas Rollergirls 2015 season continues THIS Saturday, March 7, at our home, The Blood Shed (6110 Trade Center Drive). The doors open at 5pm, and the first whistle blows at 6pm, but we welcome you to get there early to tailgate. Make a sign, have a beer, and scream for your favorite team! Faster, Break ‘em, Hustle, Hell Yeah!

Love ya ‘till it hurts.

Pre-Game Run Down: February 14, 2015 Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:15:30 +0000 Everything you thought you knew about the Texas Rollergirls home teams you can throw out the window, and hold on to your seats. The off-season has seen some big shake ups, and 2015 could be anyone’s year.

Game 1: Hustlers vs. Honky Tonk Heartbreakers14766392649_7be102d467_o

The first bout of the evening is a rematch of the 3rd place game of 2014 with the Hustlers taking on the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. The Heartbreakers had a tough rebuilding season in 2014 after winning champs in an overtime edge-of-your-seat bout in 2013. During the off season, they acquired Trauma formerly of Kansas City, a Team USA skater, and an incredible asset to the team’s blockers. Add her in with Headless Highness and Nine Lives, and they are going to make things difficult for some opposing jammers. Hauss the Boss (from the Hotrod Honeys), Cease Ann Desist, and Babe Ruthless (from the Hustlers) will all be skating in gingham and gold this year. Hauss’s powerful jamming along with the quickness of Sideshow Ho and Deep Dish Nitza, guarantees the Heartbreakers some high scoring jams this season. Keep your eye on the team’s only true rookie, Thugs Bunny, because she has some tricks up her sleeve. Retired skaters Kitty Karnage and Sic Shooter will be running the Heartbreaker’s bench.

The Hustlers are looking terrifyingly strong in their first scrimmages of the season. Fifi Nomenon, Bittercup, and The Killa’ Sal Monella form a wall to be reckoned with. Throw in recent additions CC Boom (from San Antonio) and rookie Couch Crasher, and these blockers can put the fear in any jammer. The Hustlers also added two jammers from the Lonestar Rollergirls: Nicki Ticki Timebomb and Wild Carnage. They both bring an intensity and unpredictability to the jammer rotation which includes the slippery Malice. Sprawkett has traded in her jammer star for a coach’s whistle this season.

Texas Rollergirls Champs  08.16.14 - The Hotrod Honeys vs The HeGame 2: Hell Marys vs. Hotrod Honeys

The second bout of the night is the 2014 Champs rematch between the Hell Marys and the Hotrod Honeys. Both of these teams look very different in 2015, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t both want this big win. The Hotrod’s Bloody Mary has opted to skate “All-Star Only” this season (after 13 years with TXRG!), and with Hauss shifting to the Heartbreakers and Olympia retiring, they had some pretty big skates to fill. DeBella DeBall has joined the Hotrods (from the Heartbreakers), and will take on the role of jammer killer. MariEZ Livin’ (from the Hustlers), and captain LaVoodoo along, with rookie Sum Ho will be making life tough on opposing jammers. Joining Olivia Shootin’ John and Stone Her in the jammer rotation will be Kategory 5, formerly of Lonestar Rollergirls.

Your 2014 champion Hell Marys pulled off a nail-biter of a win last year, and have seen some of the biggest off season changes. They lost key players Sinnerfold, Notorious D.I.E, and Sandy Ravage to retirement, and Smarty Pants opted to play all-star only for 2015. The Hells have the bulk of this season’s rookie class, but don’t let that fool you, they are still looking like tough competitors. Keep your eye on Gravy, Baby!, the jammer powerhouse from Jewel City, as well as Mini Massacre, the sneaky jammer who transferred from Lonestar Rollergirls. Angela Momentum, from our Rec League, and Bullet Sucker, from Houston Roller Derby,  are strong blockers that along with captain Dolores Fuertes, and veteran blocker Virgo Vengeful, are sure to give those Hotrod jammers some trouble off the line.

The Texas Rollergirls 2015 season starts THIS Saturday, February 14. We welcome you to our home, The Blood Shed (6110 Trade Center Drive). Please get there early to tailgate! Doors open at 5:00pm, and the band Rugaroux, comprised of former skaters and coaches, will be playing until the first whistle blows at 6pm. The Hell Marys have a title to defend, but the Heartbreakers, Hotrods, and Hustlers won’t let be easy for them. It’s anybody’s season.

Love ya ‘till it hurts.
