|The time is upon us again. Calling all Pirates and Heroes as we prepare for these two forces to clash once again as we kick off our Second Annual Home Season! Watch as the Great Lakes Pirates gear up to defend their victorious first season, while the Half Barrel Heroes prepare to seek retribution! After building their ranks both teams are at full force and ready for battle!
Join us Saturday, February 28th for fast action, hard hits, and crazy fun! Doors open at 9:00 AM, first whistle at 10:00 AM.
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!
Have you heard? It’s already time for our home team rematch! After a solid win by the Pirates in the home opener, the Heroes are looking for payback!
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!
|It’s finally here! After four years of slow and steady building, the Blitzdkrieg formed two home teams this year, and they’re ready for battle! Who will you be cheering for? The Half Barrel Heroes, with their rugged jaws and gleaming smiles? Or the Great Lakes Pirates, with their dirty jokes and debauchery?
Doors open at 10, first whistle is at 10:30
Last night, the Blitzdkrieg met for our first-ever draft party, creating two home teams! This is a huge step, making it far easier to schedule exciting events more often, while still maintaining our travel team, which will go up against other MRDA leagues.
Without further ado, your 2014 Milwaukee Blitzdkrieg HOME TEAMS!
