Local Rivals Both Big Winners When it Comes to Community

The winter solstice is the shortest darkest day of the year. But on December 21st, the Mac Center in Eagle River was filled with light. Enthusiastic fans came to cheer on their favorite high school hockey team, and they brought gifts as well. Each year, the Mustangs and the Wolves take this opportunity to support a local charity. These rivals come to the game to win, but both teams know that this game is about more than just bragging rights. This year 500 items were collected for Covenant House. Gloves, socks, hair products, makeup, headphones, hats, cash, and baked goods were delivered the next day. This was a special night for some young skaters as well. Six players from the two Mustang Hockey Association Mites teams were invited to warm up with the high school players. Wolves and Mustang players had a great time, as did the Mites. When it was time to announce the lineup, they skated up to the blueline with their buddies in tow. Once players shook hands, and Mites were off the ice, it was time to get down to business. The game lived up to the hype and anticipated battle among friends.

With game time 7:00pm the sun setting and the brisk temperatures at the Anchorage Football Stadium, you could see the players breath and a layer of fog hung over the field almost like a blanket. The first half action felt like the fans were watching a heavyweight prize fight with each team standing toe to toe trading punches.
