Following a heated district contest, several members of each team met at the "Hammitt Rink" in Bemidji for a fun afternoon of outdoor backyard hockey.
Crookston's Squirt A Hockey Team squared off against Bemidi's team in Bemidji on Sunday for a heated district game. Both teams battled hard in a great game, leaving it all on the ice, with Bemidji winning 6-2.
There were no high fives or signs of friendships during the game. But afterwards several members of each team met at the "Hammitt Rink" in Bemidji for a fun afternoon of outdoor backyard hockey. Here the setting was pizza, pop, outdoor hockey fun and plenty of celebration from cross district friendships that were made through summer AAA hockey.
Several of the kids are teammates on the 2002 MN Northern Wings team and the 2002 Bemidji Blues team.
Crookston boys participating in the backyard game were: Jack Doda (Peanut), Leyton Salentine, Joey Doda and Jameson Folden.
