Adrenaline Fueled Features OC Roller Girlson Jun 10 in Events, News, Web by OC Roller Girls
The OC Roller Girls (OCRG) held the first banked track match in their new home Santa Ana. The Orange Whips beat the Traffic Jammers in a close bout that stayed exciting until the end with the final score being 155 (Orange Whips) – 145 (Traffic Jammers).
This was our first time at a banked track event and it was 10 times the excitement of their flat track matches. The action was fast paced and bigger hits. The bout (game) consists of 2 periods each one being 30 minutes and an unlimited number of jams can be played in that time period. A jam is 1 minute unless the lead jammer calls it off early by putting her hands on her hips. Their are up to 5 players from each team on the rink. One jammer (star on helmet), one Pivot (stripe on helmet) and 3 blockers. Jammers score points by passing members of the opposing team. Penalties can be accrued through illegal hits which include using elbows, tripping, blocking from behind and holding.
