A very close game between #48-ranked Ohio Roller Derby and #45 Oklahoma Victory Dolls had five lead changes. Power jams were part of those power swings, and each team had main scorers who helped push the score. Ohio got within two points as the game came to a close, but a string of lead jams for Oklahoma helped them secure the win, 182-164.
Following an early lead from #13 Treasure Valley, and a subsequent back-and-forth battle for control of the game, a blistering 73-18 run from Ohio to finish out the half sent their Idaho-based opponents home empty-handed.
A trio of powerful jamming performances from Gorges Curves, Val Holla and Pain Train further extended Ohio’s lead in the second half to give them the win, 220-113. They emerged with a berth against #5 Oklahoma, and a guarantee that they’ll finish out the weekend without dropping below a #10 exit.
