Prince William County has a new ice hockey champion.
The Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD) was victorious on Saturday when it faced the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue (PWCDFR).
The two departments competed in the second annual Guns and Hoses charity hockey game, which was held at the Prince William Ice Center in Dale City.
About $1,000 was raised for the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation and Team Prince William Law Enforcement United (LEU) through a raffle at the game, according to a release from the county.
A raffle for a signed Washington Capitals Jersey is being held by the PWCPD and PWCDFR. The raffle drawing will take place on September 11.
According to Fire and Rescue Captain Bruce Tucker, funds collected through the jersey raffle will be combined with proceeds raised at the match.
The final score on Saturday was 8 to 2. Last year’s game ended with an 8 to 3 win for fire and rescue personnel.
Even though this year’s game didn’t end favorably for the PWCDFR, Tucker said it was successful.
“At the end of the day it’s about the charities,” Tucker said. “Taking care of the families of our fallen brothers and sisters, that’s what this is really about.”
