The Texas Rollergirls continued their touring season clean sweep this weekend with their latest trip to Houston. The Honky Tonk Heartbreakers took down the Bayou City Bosse$ 86-49.
That puts the TXRG 2-0 against Houston's league teams (since April's 126-83 domination of the Psych Ward Sirens by the Hell Marys), and 4-0 for the 2008 touring season so far. But this latest Houston victory has got to raise the stakes for July 13, when it's the battle of the touring teams as the No. 4 Women's Flat Track Derby Association-ranked Texecutioners travel south to take on the No. 24 ranked HaRD Knocks. Will Austin rule H-Town, or will the home team remind everyone why they call it Clutch City?
Of course, there's still the little matter of the June 1 visit by the Big Easy Rollergirls from New Orleans, who challenge the seemingly unstoppable Hotrod Honeys. In the league bout, the Hell Marys have to get past the resurgent Hustlers to have a chance at getting into the championship. Tickets available now.
