Firefighters from Windsor and Hantsport joined forces to take on members of Windsor and Valley RCMP for a friendly hockey match in support of New Boundaries recently.

The game, which was originally scheduled for February but had to be postponed until March 30 due to inclement weather, was a friendly bout aimed at raising funds for, and awareness of, the adult agency that aims to enhance community inclusion and promote vocational, social and life skills for people with diverse abilities.

This year marked the second New Boundaries Hockey Charity Classic.

At the conclusion of the game, which the RCMP won, one lucky ticket holder had the chance to shoot a puck in hopes of winning a car. Local businessman Jonathan DeMont took aim this year, but missed passing the puck through the narrow cardboard cutout.
