Home season finale

Great Scott, it’s already time for the last home season game of 2014! Join us Saturday, May 17th at 6PM, at Rollaero, 5200 S Pennsylvania Ave, in Cudahy!

In game 2, the Heroes came out strong in the first half, but the Pirates were able to chip away during the second, and managed to pull away and take the win. With one last chance, the Heroes are sure to fight hard for the win, while the Pirates will be pursuing a perfect season. Should be a great game!

After the main event, we’re pleased to announce our first ever co-ed game! Skaters from all over Wisconsin and Illinois will be honorary Pirates and Heroes for the evening. Doors open at 6, the first whistle blows at 6:30, and the co-ed game begins at 8:15. That’s a lotta derby, and a lotta fun!

Home game success!

It’s official, the Blitzdkrieg’s first home team battle is in the books. It took a lot of hard work and planning, caused a lot of stress and anxiety, but with a lot of help from a stupendous crew, and the support of our fans, we think it ended up a huge success!

When the last whistle blew, the Great Lakes Pirates took the first win, with a score of 338-101 over the Half Barrel Heroes. We’ll have a full recap, and video, available soon, so watch this space.

Our next game is coming up soon, check the schedule page for more details!

Thank you all, volunteers, officials and fans, for being a part of this huge milestone in Blitzdkrieg history. We’d be nowhere without you. Looking forward to seeing you all again next month! GET BLITZD!
