Blockers try to keep jammer from getting through

Two referees keep an eye on the teams as a blocker for the Swift Current Veronicas (in pink) falls as Weyburn blockers for the Strait Jackettes try to maintain a solid line going around the track. In roller derby, there are four blockers and a jammer on both sides, and blockers try to help their jammer get through to score points while preventing the other jammer from getting through. This game was the first for the Weyburn team, held on Saturday evening at the Weyburn Curling Rink, as part of the Weyburn Wheat Festival. The Weyburn girls won their match by the score of 154-102.
