WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Friday night would mark the second time in asmany years that the Wilmington Police Department and New Hanover County Sheriff'sOffice hit the ice against the Wilmington Fire Department and First Responders.The Icehouse in Ogden was packed with friends, family, and co-workers of thestars on the ice.
The game got off to aphysical start and you could clearly tell this game wasn't just for fun. Theseguys came to win. The fire department got out to a quick 3-1 lead in the firstperiod, but it was the boys in blue who would rally from behind and get the win8-5.
Last year all of the moneywent to the Wilmington Fire Department Memorial Fund and this year's money willgo to a charity for the Wilmington Police Department. You can only imagine theFire Department and First Responders cannot wait until next year to reclaimbragging rights of "kings of the ice."
