42 TEAMS TAKE PART IN FIRST PENS POWER PLAY STREET HOCKEY TOURNEY
Forty-two teams and nearly 400 players experienced the evolution of off-ice hockey in Pittsburgh at the first-ever Penguins Power Play Street Hockey Tournament. Greater Pittsburgh Dekhockey in Penn Hills and Murrysville Dekhockey on Route 22 hosted competition in seven divisions this past weekend.
The winners were:
*Adult Competitive – Team Pittsburgh Gods
*Adult Recreational “A” – MF’ers
*Adult Recreational “B” – Route 51
*Youth 13-15 “A” – Penn Hills
*Youth 13-15 “B” – Steel City Slap Shots
*Youth 10-12 – Penn Hills
*Youth 7-9 – Penn Hills
All proceeds from the tournament benefited the Penguins’ Hockey in the ‘Hood program.
“The Penguins provided plenty of great prizes, the entry fee was minimal and the 4-on-4 format made for a lot of scoring chances,” said tournament director Mark Madden of ESPN Radio 1250. “The goal was to get a lot of people playing hockey and having fun, and that mission was definitely accomplished.”
The Penguins will stage a Power Play Roller Hockey Tournament later this year. Check back for details!
