Progress on the Road; High Stakes for Home Opener

TCRD’s trip to Ohio yielded a split, with Thunder succumbing to the Ohio All-Stars 225-142. Plan B grabbed a similar result, losing to Gang Green 247-94. On the surface, this might lead to heavy hearts, but a reasonable score differential against a top-25 opponent will actually mean a net gain in Thunder’s ranking. Of course, the professional and welcoming Ohio Roller Girls always make the trip worthwhile.

On the other skate, Thunder also stopped by NEO Roller Derby on the way home for a closed-door Sunday bout, making off with a win by a score of 224-142.

 

Up next, of course, is the home opener in which Both Thunder and Plan B return to action against the Brandywine Roller Girls’ Belligerents and Brawlers. Brandywine, coming out of Chester County, PA, has made a bit of a splash in WFTDA by remaining unbeaten in sanctioned play since their debut in October of last year. A win by the 53rd ranked Brandywine over 41st placed Thunder would have serious repercussions for the next ranking cycle. THIS COUNTS BIG TIME!

This is the part where I need you. Not just to “Get Your Backside Trackside”, but to bring all the madness and fury you can with you. We need you Tri-Hards, you Shark Bait, and all your chums* to show up and become part of the FEEDING FRENZY! (yell that during a powerjam and I might explode from happiness). Do you need inspiration? Take another look at this:

Rolling Thunder 2014: O Hai!

Listen up, Tri-Hards! While we know you’re excited about the home opener next weekend against Brandywine, Tri-City starts 2014 on the road with a trip to Ohio, with both Thunder and Plan B taking on a league that saw some success recently at Quad City Chaos.

OHRG is currently ranked 22nd in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. Thunder sits at 41st, within striking distance of a top 25 finish and a trip to the Division 1 Playoffs. This first game of the season will be critical for TCRD to assess their off season training plan, the relationship between Thunder and Plan B, and the amount of rust they need to shake off after their last bout in October.

On Sunday, Thunder will be stopping in on NEO Roller Derby for a closed bout to further stuff their weekend full of derby action.

Wish our traveling skaters good hunting in their first action of the season!
