EAGLE RIVER (WAOW) - National champions were crowned on Sunday on Dollar Lake, as the 8th annual Pond Hockey National Championships came to an end in Eagle River. There were sticks, pucks and skates, but this wasn't your typical hockey game.
Over a span of three days, a record 341 teams played on 28 rinks. Skating on an ice surface that was 20 inches thick, players came from all over the country. As far away as Maryland and California.
The game itself consists of 4 on 4 hockey played over two 15-minute halves. There were 18 different divisions in the tournament, including several for players older than 50.
Proving that you're never too old to play outdoor hockey.
