On the 21st of March 2009 the Middlesborough Milk Rollers rolled up to Cocks Moors Woods Leisure Centre, Birmingham, in the bright spring sunshine to take on Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames for Middlesborough’s first public bout. Although there was a smaller crowd than most of BBDD’s home bouts, largely due to the London based Glasgow Roller Girls/London Rockin Rollers’ bout scheduled for the same day, there was a cracking atmosphere.

Period One:
Jam One. Gun Bunny gets lead jammer, Inky Minx gets to check out the penalty box. BB*DD 4 – MMR O
Jam Two. Inky Minx comes out of the penalty box to gain lead jammer status before KiKi Kasplat can get through, despite a lovely whip offered to the Birmingham jammer by Victoria Cross. BB*DD 15 – MMR 6
Jam Three. Sleazy Rider beats Oompah Thump-Ya to lead jammer. BB*DD 18 – MMR 7
Jam Four. A great jam for Violet Attack, the only jammer to pass through the pack. BB*DD 27 – MMR 7
Jam Five. Hilda Blizzhard is beaten to lead jammer by Fraulein Wunder. BB*DD 30 – MMR 1O

Jam Eight. Attack’s second turn as jammer. BB*DD 48 – MMR 18
Jam Nine. Blizzhard vs. Thump-Ya. BB*DD 54 – MMR 22
Jam Ten. Gun Bunny beats Inky Minx to lead jammer, Union Jack-U-Up offers Violet a whip and there is cold, ruthless blocking from Roisin. BB*DD 57 – MMR 22
Jam Eleven. Ciderella beats KiKi Kasplat to lead jammer. BB*DD 60 – MMR 41
Jam Twelve. Sleazy Rider takes lead jammer ahead of Germaine Leer, who ends up in the penalty box. BB*DD 63 – MMR 41

Jam Fifteen. Gun Bunny gets lead jammer, and this time the pack prevents Germaine Leer from getting through. BB*DD 83 – MMR 41
Jam Sixteen. Union Jack-U-Up gets through first to get three points as lead jammer, but Rita Von Sleaze gets four. Half time score: BB*DD 86 – MMR 45

Jam Two. KiKi Kasplat skates furiously focused but Inky Minx slips through. BlizzHard gets majored. BB*DD 95 – MMR 48
Jam Three. Fraulein Wunder slides through the pack and into lead jammer, but Sleazy Rider’s right on her tail. BB*DD 99 – MMR 51
Jam Four. Hilda BlizzHard is still in the penalty box. The pack is loose and no one is awarded lead jammer status. An excellent jam for Violet Attack who gains 19 legal passes. BB*DD 118 – MMR 51
Jam Five. Jammer Hilda BlizzHard and Roisin Roulette are sent off. Ciderella takes lead jammer and five points. BB*DD 118 – MMR 56
Jam Six. Violet Attack seems to be holding off the MMR insurgence single handed, or solo behinded, as she positions herself in front of everyone. Blizzhard gets six points on her return. BB*DD 124 – MMR 57
Jam Seven. Sees a pile up and OSMS rushing on to ensure everyone’s in one piece. Smokin Ace goes down with a dislocated shoulder and everyone drops to one knee hoping her injuries aren’t serious. Roisin’s tenure as lead jammer is short lived. BB*DD 125 – MMR 57
Jam Eight. Gun Bunny is knocked flying and Kiki is sent off. BB*DD 136 – MMR 59
Jam Nine. Fraulein Wunder makes hearty attempts to keep up, but Hilda BlizzHard is just too fast, determined and powerful. Diabolus Rutilus and Elle Fire show their skills as they glide effortlessly through the pack to be where they want to be. BB*DD 138 – MMR 61
Jam Ten. Hilda BlizzHard jolts through the pack like a pinball, taking lead jammer as the pack prevents Fraulein Wunder’s progress. And with twelve and a half minutes to go, the score is BB*DD 146 – MMR 61
Jam Eleven. A great jam for lead jammer KiKi Kasplat who slides through the pack, with Elle Fire attentively distracting the MMR pack, to pull Birmingham more than one hundred points ahead of Middlesborough. BB*DD 160 – MMR 61
Jam Twelve. Sleazy loses lead jammer to Armalite Angie. BB*DD 161- MMR 64
Jam Thirteen. Oompah Thump-Ya storms through the pack, beating Gun Bunny to lead jammer, but she is then sent to the box. Bitter Sweet and Bunny tangle up, and Bunny is later helped off the track by the medics. BB*DD 161 – MMR 72
Jam Fourteen. With Oompah Thump-Ya still in the box, Union Jack-U-Up storms into her finest moment. Again and again she whips round the track, slicing through the MMR pack like a hot knife slides through butter, racking up a whopping 26 points. Diabolus Rutilus shows her steel, absorbing a fierce blow from Germaine Leer. BB*DD 187 – MMR 72
Jam Fifteen. There can’t be much more now. Hilda BlizzHard waits for the second whistle with Fraulein Wunder again at her side, as Bee Sting‘s booty manipulates the pack. The Blitz Dames have clearly won the bout, but by how much, what have the Milk Rollers got to show in the final minutes? The Middlesborough jammer gets through first, showing the northerners’ spirit, it ain’t over yet, Birmingham! Middlesborough are still fighting. But BlizzHard is just too tough and scores seven to Wunder’s three. It’s BB*DD 194 – MMR 75
Jam Sixteen. With about half a minute left on the clock, the final ten on the track know this is it! Roisin Roulette and Ciderella are the last two skaters to jam. And though they must all be exhausted after an hour’s furious skating, the enthusiasm and determination remains undiminished. BB*DD 198 – MMR 78

We MMRemember, The Blitz Dames speak:

Roisin Roulette: “Bitter Sweet taking a hit, getting back up and catching the pack to try and knock Armalite Angie over (you have to admire her ambition! first bout and all …..) “

Victoria Cross: “Angie coming on to jam like a steam locomotive with everyone from both teams fighting to get out of her way!”

Roisin Roulette: “Diabolus Rutilus wanting to skate every jam…Kiki really making her mark as a jammer and also getting in some good hits”

Blow Up Betty: “Watching Roulette, Kasplat and Sleazy break up wall after wall with
fierce fearlessness had me in awe for the match.”

The Skatrix: “Diabolus made a fearsome blocker 4!”

Roisin Roulette: “Blizzhard, Sin and Elle Fire clearing the MMR blockers off the inside line towards the front of the pack, Diamondback and VC and Bee in the thick of it, UJ and Sleazy all over the track, hitting at the back and then
getting in front of the MMR jammer when she thought she was through; it was
a lovely bout to jam in.”

Blow Up Betty: “Their little jammers Ooompa Thumpa and Ciderella both did a great job at getting up again and again after getting trampled by the dames defence.”

Roisin Roulette: “U-J’s look of baffled innocence when Germaine Leer said she’d elbowed her in the face (like how would she reach that high anyway?)”

Saintly Sin: “There we are, standing around, the air around us electrified and Skatrix tells us to get on the bench and the positions we are to play. “Kiki-pivot, Diamondback-2, Sin-3,UJ(?)-4, Roisin-jamming.” We park our backsides on the bench, quivering in excitement and Kiki turns to me “Wow, I’ve never been in the last jam before” It dawns on me then, oh my, this is it, this is gonna be the last jam, this is just the glory jam, we won it already, this will be fun.
Elle Fire turns to everyone and says “It is, it’s the last one, this is it. Shall we just batter them? Let’s just destroy them. Free for all dames, knock them down”. We all agree, we are just gonna have some fun with this and just do as much bashing as possible.
The whistle blows. Skatrix tells us to get on the track. We skate on, focused, and ready for some fun. We line up, a milk roller stands next to me and smiles, I grin back, she knows what’s coming. The pack whistle is blown, we start to skate, we’re partway round the track and I see white, blue and pink roll up next to me, is she a jammer? A pivot? A blocker? Quite frankly I don’t care, she is a Milk Roller and for now, she is the opposition so BANG and she is on the floor, oh yes, she is down, I make a fist for a personal little celebration of my take down and across he PA I hear Jack “Saintly Sin is celebrating her take down” thanks Jack.
As the Milk Rollers went down, our Roisin just slipped through the pack with ease, that’s our Roisin, jammer extraordinaire. Time ends and the final whistle blows with Roisin managing to bring the score to an amazing 198 to the Dames. We have done it, Middleborough Milk Rollers 78, Blitz Dames 198. It’s time for the victory lap, so many high fives, so many smiling faces from both the crowd and the amazing Middleborough girls. What a fantastic bunch and what a pleasure to skate with.
Party time, and even before my skates are off, a pina colada appears in my hand*…”

Roisin Roulette: “Bee scaring the MMR girls, UJ knocking ’em down, Blizzhard a quick and strong pivot and tireless jammer, Attack getting sent off at the start,
then getting into her groove and cutting through the pack with her usual incisive skating but taking responsibility as captain to pivot and let the new jammers have a go.”

The Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames loved hosting the Middlesborough Milk Rollers and can’t wait for the rematch!

*although, of course, Ms Saintly Sin didn’t DRINK it until she had removed her skates. Blitzdames follow the rules TO THE LETTER!

Blitz Dames skate to victory in Stuttgart

Posted by blitzdames on February 6, 2009

Final Score 98 – 71: The Blitz Dames skate to victory in our first international away bout!

Well, the travel team are having a well-deserved rest after a fantastic weekend in Stuttgart, hosted by the fast, fierce and foxy Stuttgart Valley RollerGirlz at the Sport Stuttgart Arena. It was the first time the Dames have travelled abroad for a bout and it was definitely well worth the air fare!

We pulled ahead to a decisive lead early in the bout, but it was very evenly matched for the rest of the first half with Stuttgart giving as good as they got. The Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames led 68-39 at halftime.

In the second period, Stuttgart came out hitting hard and gained some ground on us, but they were no match in the end for the stunning jamming skills of Hilda Blizzhard, Tear E. Hatchet, Union Jack-U-Up and especially Violet Attack, who zipped through the pack again and again!

Stuttgart were great hosts as well as great players. They and their massive crowd of enthusiastic supporters couldn’t have given us a warmer reception, or a better afterparty! We partied till the wee hours at the Keller Klub, with badass music, a riotous burlesque show and the crazy band, Action Team (imagine Electric Six crossed with the 118 118 guys…), plus plenty of beer a-flowing.

Kudos also to the stripey ones. As well as SVRG’s own refs, and two of our lovely Blitz Dames (Justine Credible and Kiki Kasplat), we were lucky enough to be joined by LRG’s own Ballistic Whistle and Crash Test from Canada’s Terminal City RollerGirls. Crash Test congratulated us afterwards on skating well and playing ‘a good, clean game – for roller derby!’

Blitz Dames Victory in Battle with Stuttgart

Posted by Fury on November 28, 2008

bobgroup1

Making roller sports history again, the Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames hosted the Stuttgart Valley Rollergirlz in the first ever pan-European bout held in the UK.  The bout was an heart-pounding, ever-changing competition that many Midlands fans said was the most exciting derby match they’d ever seen. 

The teams consisted of abbreviated 12 player rosters, although Birmingham’s jammer Roisin Roulette soon had to remove herself from the competition due to illness, resulting in a team of 11 for most of the bout.  Birmingham was also skating without two of their most experienced players, having lost Bee Sting to an injury and Sleazy Rider rider to work obligations (something has to keep us in skates!).  But, the Dames were bolstered by the presence of Helen Fury – who cancelled a holiday to fill in at very short notice, jammer Tear E. Hatchet – just back from injury herself, and the debut of blocker Victoria Cross.   Stuttgart Valley Rollergirls showed their own dedication to the derby grail even before the bout began, having persevered through a series of travel nightmares that extended their trip to Birmingham by 10 hours!

First Period

Scoring was close for the first few jams as the teams evaluated each other.  SVRG’s Blitzkrieg Baby grabbed the first lead jammer status of the evening, but no points were scored in that jam.   Early on Stuttgart showed their ease with body checks and general derby physicality, whilst the Dames started with a strong defensive strategy.  Differences of opinion over WFTDA guidelines and the still-young 3.1 ruleset emerged early, and sometimes re-appeared throughout the bout, but Justine Credible fulfilled her first bout as head ref with grace and authority, calling official time outs as needed.  

By the second jam, Birmingham was creating chaos as jammer Violet Attack earned the lead jammer moniker and called off the jam just as SVRG’s jammer Dolly BustHer reached the pack, Birmingham’s more experienced blockers also showed their offensive side by creating chaos with hard checks.   Stuttgart’s Miss Tsunami roared into the third jam to score 4 points to Blitzdame’s 0 and by the end of jam four the score was nearly tied, at Birmingham 6, SVRG 5. 

In the fourth jam Roisin Roulette jammed her first and only run, despite her condition.  With the help of the Dames’s blockers to clear a path, she gained two points as Polly Purgatory scored zero. Fortune appeared to turn as SVRG’s Public Enemy initially grabbed lead jammer status and two points the next jam, but was soon trapped by blockers Kiki Kasplat (who executed one near-horizontal block)and pivot Elle Fire as Union Jack jammed for four points and called off the jam.  Jam 5 was an immediate reversal as the Dames’ Tear E. Hatchet gained lead jammer, but the SVRG got the point spoils, at 4 to Dames 0.  This success came at a price, and Stuttgart started jam 8 with a full penalty box.  As the jam whistle blew, SVRG had one extra skater on the track, providing some confounding moments until the ref crew sorted the situation.  The UK’s youngest rollergirl, Birmingham’s Gun Bunny, came out blazing to the lead jammer status in her first jam of the game despite a recent roller derby hiatus.  In this close race, both teams garnered another three points.

It wasn’t all smooth bearings for Gun, however, as in Jam 16 she was the target of a full-body take-down hit from Miss Tsunami that threw both players far out of bounds, after the jam had been called off!  Fortunately the medical staff checked her over and she was soon bout-fit again, and Tsunami was sent off to the penalty box after an official time-out.  The Dames came back for jam 17 in energetic fashion as Tear E. scored lead jammer and four points, whilst SVRG’s Public Enemy failed to score.

Throughout the first period, and indeed the entire game, Blitzdames’ Hilda Blizzhard and Stuttgart’s Dolly BustHer showed impressive versatility in a variety of roles, from jamming to quick pack blocking strategy.  Pack performance was also demonstrated by Saintly Sin of Birmingham, who showed tactical agility in defensive and active blocking roles.  The Blitzdames had a more unified strategy than SVRG throughout the first period, allowing them to achieve a 19 point lead by the end of the first half, at a score of 49-30.

Second Period
The Birmingham Dames were beginning to feel the strain of being a jammer down, and SVRG increased their focus to gain momentum in the second half.  However, Birmingham’s line up managers, Von Bitch and Jack Attack from the London Rockin Rollers, rallied to reorganise the team through the entire second period.   These honorary BlitzDames for the evening showed precision in their ability to rotate tired skaters and match skater skills to track needs.  Newer Blitzdames skaters Diamondback Belle and Victoria Cross also volunteered for increased track time, both blocking actively and keeping the pack pace.

The first jam started off well for SVRG, with 3 points to Blitzdames’ 1.  The next jam saw the Dames change focus to holding Stuttgart’s jammer in the pack, keeping them from scoring at all whilst Violet Attack fought her way through to still gain 4 points.  SVRG’s Miss Tsunami demonstrated quick thinking and quick footwork to slip past blockers in jam 3 as the Dames were clearing a path for their own jammer.  Tsunami then scored 6 points, and called the jam off just in time to allow the Dames only one point.  The fourth jam was marked by confusion as Polly Purgatory unsuccessfully attempted to call the jam off despite no lead jammer.   During this jam Blitzkrieg Baby showed renewed determination as took down Violet Attack. By the end of this jam Stuttgart had lessened the divide to only 9 points, at 56-47. 

In jam 5, Stuttgart got lead jammer but Blitzdames’ Tear E. outscored her, with four points to Public Enemy’s three. Then, in jam 6, the Dame’s pivot, blocker 2 and blocker 3 ran a combination at the front of the pack to envelope Blitzkrieg Baby within the pack whilst Gun Bunny scored a fantastic eight points and called the jam, with Stuttgart’s jammer only managing to gain four points. This again increased the Dames margin, and was followed up with an another six Birmingham points to SVRG’s three in Jam 7 with Violet Attack facing Public Enemy, for an overall score of 74-57 in the Dames’ favour.

In the next jam SVRG’s jammer Polly Purgatory was met a solid defensive wall at the front from Birmingham blocker Helen Fury and
Union Jack-U-Up after her first pass. Polly stepped inside the track to pass the wall and this time was promptly sent off to the box for the major penalty of cutting the track. However, SVRG rallied and blocked effectively to prevent the Dames’ jammer capitalising on having the being the only jammer on the track.

In jam nine there was no lead jammer and Birmingham’s pivot was sent to the penalty box. During the long two minute jam the Dames scored zero while veteran Birmingham skaters flew to the front of the pack in a display of impromptu leadership to hold SVRG’s jammer Miss Tsunami after she scored one point.  Miss Tsunami then fouled, resulting in a visit the the penalty box before the full two minute jam finished.

In jam 10 The SVRG’s jammer, Blitzkrieg Baby showed impressive stamina. Helen Fury first took Blitzkrieg out, but didn’t know when to stop and had to spend some quality time in the penalty box for blocking out of bounds.  Union Jack U-Up continued the punishment by delivering a stunning block to take out Blitzkrieg Baby again, legally this time. However, Blitzkrieg still managed to gain nine points during the long two minute jam.  With Birmingham ganering only three points this jam, the gap was again closing.  Blitzkrieg amazingly stepped back on the track as a blocker for the next jam, but soon left for a tripping penalty.  During that jam SVRG’s Public Enemy scored 2 points and strategically called off the jam before Birmingham’s jammer hit the pack.

SVRG again made a strong showing in jam 12 as Polly Purgatory took lead jammer status and scored four points to Birmingham’s zero.  This made the score the closest since the beginning of the game, at 77-73.  By jam 13 both teams were showing signs of fatigue.  SVRG’s jammer lost focus and had to go to the penalty box soon after getting lead jammer status.  Birmingham’s jammer was noticeably coasting more, and missed inside holes as she skated behind a two-blocker SVRG wall at the front of the pack, whilst a second Dame missed her pivot’s cues to stay back so that the SVRG skaters would hit 20 feet and have to let the jammer go.  Several fans in the stands expressed their frustration as neither team scored during the two minutes.

bob2By jam 14 both teams pulled out their ‘dream team’ line-ups, and the Dames again managed to widen the gap just a fraction, by scoring 4 points to Stuttgart’s 2.  With the score at 81 -75 and very little time left on the clock, jam 15 also required veteran-heavy skater presence on the track.   Birmingham jammer Violet Attack came out again against Blitzkrieg Baby.  Knowing that if the scores remained the same it would be a Birmingham victory, Violet Attack got in front of her opposing jammer and did some amazing positional blocking preventing the Stuttgart jammer from scoring at all.  Neither jammer passed through the startled pack a second time. Some of the crowd were bewildered, with Violet Attack receiving boos from the Stuttgart supporters but cheers from those supporting Birmingham. This was a fine demonstration of tactical thinking, positional blocking and the power of a properly deployed backside winning it for Birmingham (and England!), final score Blitzdames 81-75.

Canada vs England?

Posted by hooligal on February 8, 2008

Psssttt…a little birdy (ok ok the Canadian Roller Girls group..) told me that Canada is gathering a team to come play some bouts in the UK, in June. HOW EXCITING!! This would be the first trans-atlantic bout I do believe.

 Here’s the message that was sent out:

“Hello everyone,

There is a phenomenal opportunity for us Canadians to band together to
form a team and play England in June of this year!

Hoochie Mama (OCDG) and I are looking for ~20 ladies who are
interested in going. Ideally, we’d love to have 2 or 3 girls from each
league participate, making it truly a national enterprise!

To date, 2 games have been slotted in England (and there is a
possibility of a third) for early June. The games will fall between
June 5th and 14th.

We invite all interested girls to submit a resume (file newly uploaded
into the ‘Files section’ of this group, called “Team_Canada. doc”), and
a letter of recommendation from the coach/captain to us. We hope to
fund this trip through fundraisers and sponsorship, and hope to keep
the cost to each girl minimal.

Please post any questions and we will respond ASAP. Email resumes and
cover letters to : jen.prosser@ gmail.com and
hoochiemama@ oilcityderbygirl s.ca – (We will also have an ‘Eastern
Coordinator’ very soon, and we will post her information in the next
couple of days)

xox

Jenny Rocket
Calgary Roller Derby Association”

So Canadian ladies, GET ON IT!
