Tonight game was the Tenth annual game between the various police departments and fire fighters from around the Skeena Valley and North Coast of British Columbia. This is a charity event, and rumour has it, over sixteen grand was raised tonight. This event brought quite a few people to see it. It is more than just a contest of hockey, it is for a good cause and good time. However, the Fire fighters were all over Law Enforcement from the first face-off, and they easily held their goal lead to the vary end, washing the guns down to a score of eight to four.
Even with more players in reserve, the Guns just could not get it together on the ice. The majority of the Hoses’ goals were scored in the first period, while the Guns tried to turn up the heat in the Third, it just was not enough.
It was all great to see. The puck toss was great, but I am not sure on how much money was won from that. Plus there was a 50/50 draw and other money raised. The half time event of the very young kids playing a period hockey, was awesome to watch too. Now we know where are future players are coming from for years to come. It was a great night out. Hope to see you here next year!
