Annual Comox Cup features three days of intense competition

Spectators were entertained by the non-stop action at the annual Comox Cup Adult Road Hockey Tournament.

The June 21-23 event, held this year at the Comox Marina parking lot east, attracted 22, 15-player teams from all over Vancouver Island.

“The new location was a perfect fit for the event,” said Dawn Stephens, recreation programmer at Comox Recreation, which organizes the annual event. “The rink size was a fantastic bonus.  As with any event of this size, parking can be a bit of an issue, so it is something we will address for next year.”

There were six teams in the A (competitive) division, nine teams in the B (recreational competitive) division and eight in the C (recreational) division.

The Mitt Crushers clipped the Chanced Grinders to claim A division honours, Hood Ratz overcame the Cougar Snatchers to take top spot in the B division and Rod Kill topped the Courtenay Knights to take home bragging rights the C division.

The tourney featured a beer garden, draw prizes and a cornucopia of competitive games with a heavy emphasis on camaraderie and sportsmanship.

Those aged 18 and over who are interested in playing in next year’s Comox Cup can contact Comox Rec at 250-339-2255.
