3/24 – SSRG vs Windy City Rollers – Chicago, IL (Click Here for Photos)
On March 24th, South Shore Roller girls took on The Windy City Rollers team “Third Coast” in Chicago at the UIC Pavilion. You may notice that this game isn’t on our season schedule. That’s because SSRG had the honor of a last minute invite when a team had to cancel on them. Because of the new venue, new opponent, and different (unsanctioned) nature of the game, everyone was eager to play for fun!
We played a great game. Our walls were tight, and our jammers were quick and juke-y! Unfortunately we lost 106 to 211, but we played very well and came together as a team for a fun game! With such worthy opponents we gained great knowledge and are going to learn and improve from this and use these new skills towards the upcoming bouts.
Don’t miss our next home game on April 28th at Diggz in Hobart.

On St. Patrick’s Day, SSRG started the season off with a double header at their new home location, Diggz of NWI at 4590 W 61st Ave, Hobart, IN 46342. The SSRG Runaways faced off against the Confluence Crush Heartbreakers of the Metro East, Illinois area of St. Louis, Missouri. The Heartbreakers turned out to be a formidable opponent! The Runaways fought hard, but still took a crushing loss with the final score of Runaways’ 80 to Confluence Heartbreakers’ 267. (Click Here and Here for Photos)
The next whistle began the second bout when the SSRG Derailers battled the Confluence Crush Smitten Kittens. This time, SSRG came away with a glorious win! The Derailers finished with 233 in comparison to Confluence Smitten kittens 148. The loss and win that night had the crowd (and the team) on a rollercoaster of emotions. However, the gracious to win and lose Confluence Crush were truly a wonderful group of women to skate with. (Click Here and Here for Photos)
Always dedicated to giving back our community, a portion of the proceeds from the night (as well as a car full of donations!) went to Humane Indiana.
