Pre-Game Rundown: Champs 2017!

July 1st, 2017


It’s finally here! The moment you’ve all been waiting for — the Texas Rollergirls Championship Double Header! This game is for all the marbles — the Texas Rollergirls home team trophy and bragging rights for the next year! Last month both games ended in upsets with the underdogs winning, so you will not want to miss this epic night of roller derby action.

thugsThe first game of the night will be for the 3rd place spot — a rematch between the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers and the Hustlers. Last month, for the first time in four seasons, the Heartbreakers came out victorious, beating the Hustlers in a hard-fought battle. This time, they’re looking for the same outcome. The solid defense of Cold Case, Shiner Blond, and Tear O’Bite will be making sure the Hustlers jammers have just as hard a time as the last time. The jammers you’ll want to look out for are Thugs Bunny, Delirium Trigger, and V-H8 — they’re fast, agile, insanely powerful, and ready to tear down Hustler walls.

You should expect the Hustlers to go into this game swinging. Hard. Keep an eye out for blockers Bittercup, CC Boom, and Kill Ems to lay heavy hits and keep those Heartbreaker jammers struggling. The purple defense is strong and fast and they intend to use it. The jammers for the Hustlers to watch are Nicki Ticki Timebomb, Alley Oops, and Spread Eagle. They’re going to be wearing the star most of the night and using their brains and brawn to take down the Heartbreaker defense. This game starts at 6pm and is going to be a close one. Make sure you don’t miss it!

boNext is the championship game — the Hotrod Honeys versus the Hell Marys. This whirlwind of a game last month ended in a Hell Mary victory, but the Hotrods will be looking to stop that from happening again. The swirling, strong, seemingly impenetrable defense of Bo Jacks’em, Stone Her, Nine Lives, and MariEZ Livin will be making the Hell Mary jammers’ lives a living Hell. The Hotrod jammers Olivia Shootin’ John, Grace Lightning, and Hauss the Boss all have different, impressive skating styles that will attempt to catch the Hell Mary defense off guard.

The Hell Marys, who started this season with seven out of a eleven brand new skaters, do not intend to make this game an easy one for the Hodrods. They’ve had a rebuilding season and want to end it with a bang! Between the smart, solid, hard-hitting defense of Dolores Fuertes, Trauma, and Peace War, the Hotrod jammers will have their work cut out for them. While you won’t see Freight Train at this game, the jammers Gravy, Baby! and Jennacide will be doing work on the Hotrod defense, juking and spinning all night. The game starts at 7:30 and it’s going to be one you will not want to miss.

We can’t wait to see you at our championship game, this Saturday, July 15, at the Austin Sports Center at 425 Woodward St. Doors open at 5pm, whistle at 6, but we suggest getting there early to secure a seat. This bout will sell out, so buy your tickets in advance here. This is a family-friendly event — bring your kids, your mom, your best friend, and your enemies! Love ya til it hurts!
