Hockey and broomball tournament raises funds

There was a little something for everyone Saturday at the hockey and broomball library fundraiser, even if you weren’t a hockey fan.

“We had many spectators who commented on how fun this family-oriented event was,” said City Manager Christine Burns. “We had a blast and are planning on doing it again next year. It was way too fun to do only once!”

Burns said final figures aren’t in yet, but she thinks the final tally will be about $2,000 to go toward the library matching grant fund.

The Cedar Springs Police, guided by Team Captain Ed Good, beat the Kent County Law Enforcement team in a shootout 5 to 4. Andy Good scored 2 goals in regulation and had the final tally in the shootout to ice the game for the Cedar Springs Police. Bill Kelly scored a goal and added a shootout goal for the KCLE Team. It was a family effort for KCLE Team Captain Jack Stewart who had sons, nephews, and a niece suit up with KCLE team.  The Cedar Springs Team also had some father-son combinations in the lineup to make the game special.

The Squirts take on Officer Paul Feutz in shootout action.

“The game was played at a very high pace, especially for those of us playing in Over-40 leagues,” said Roger Belknap, Cedar Springs DPW Director.  “The ‘young guns’ really made us older fellas skate hard to keep up.”

In other events:

The Dewey Decimals beat the Bookends.

The Guns and Hoses beat the Bureaucrats, but reports are that there were a number of questionable calls by officials Dave Barnes of the Cedar Springs Fire Department and Sgt. Ed Good, CSPD, and that the score keeper (Deputy Chief Marty Fraser) was biased.

The Sweep Potatoes and Frozen stiff ended in a tie, even after a shoot-out.

Belknap said they are extremely grateful for the support and advice they received from Jack Stewart and the many years experience he has had with the KCLE charity hockey team. “The KCLE team showed a lot of talent and good sportsmanship during the game. We are also grateful for the support of Rick Strouse and the Cedar Rock Sportsplex for hosting the event and providing referees and sound.”

Burns had some compliments of her own. “Both Ed (Good) and Roger (Belknap) did an amazing job with this event, from pulling the rosters together to designing the logos on all of the jerseys,” she said.

There are still some long-sleeved t-shirts for sale, and they can be purchased at the Cedar Springs Library for $18.
