The wait is over! The Texas Rollergirls are back with another heart-pounding double header. Last month’s Lone Star All-Star showdown was one for the ages, but this time it’s a battle on home turf — Texas Rollergirl vs. Texas Rollergirl.
dankeThe first game of the night will be a blur of plaid and gingham as the Hell Marys take on the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. Not only did the Hells get the terrifying duo of Dolores Fuertes and Trauma back in the midseason, Freight Train will also be exploding walls and dancing on the lines. They’ve also picked up a new midseason skater, Dark Angel A Mercy, who’s sure to do some damage to the Hearts. Also look out for jammers Gravy, Baby! and Jennacide, as they juke and jive their way through the pack. Watch for heavy defense from one-person wrecking crew PeaceWar and the always fast and solid Angela Momentum. These women have been working hard and are looking to make a comeback after their loss to the Hustlers in March.
It’s been three whole months since you’ve seen the ladies in blue, but they’ve been busy preparing to fight their way back from their loss to the Hotrod Honeys in February. The Hearts have picked up a couple of new skaters in the midseason draft — Beatrix Beatdown and Iron Chinita, so look out for their fresh, fierce faces on the track. Preseason draftee Tear O’Bite is also back from injury — watch for her to put up some heavy defense against the Hells’ jammers, along with powerhouses Cold Case and Ruby Wring, who are sure to give the Hells jammers a lot of trouble. The Heartbreaker jammers you’ll want to keep your eyes on as they stump the opposing walls are Thugs Bunny, Delirium Trigger, and V8.
legalThe second game of the night will be a matchup of purple and checker as the Hustlers take on the Hotrod Honeys. The Hustlers, who beat the Hell Marys in March, are looking to make their way back to the championship game this year. They picked up Goldie Clocks in the midseason draft, so keep your eyes out for her, as well as the destructive, defensive duo of CC Boom and Bittercup. Other strong defenders include Kill Ems and Vile Vixen, who will be making the Hotrod jammers fight for every point. On the jam line, Nicki Ticki Timebomb, Alley Oops, and Spread Eagle will be throwing everything they’ve got at the Hotrod defense.
The Hotrod Honeys don’t intend to make this an easy fight. They’ve picked up a new skater, Jurassica, and will be relying on their swirling defense and fast jammers to try and outwit the ladies in purple. Keep your eyes on Bo Jacks’em, Stone-Her, MariEZ Livin’, and Nine Lives to deliver the punches to the Hustler jammers, all while playing heavy offense for their own. Hauss the Boss, Olivia Shootin’ John, and Grace Lightning are sure to leave the Hustler defense spinning.
