The University of King’s College’s intramural hockey season ended in a Team 1 victory.

They beat Team 2 with a score of 3-2 in the King’s Cup on March 17 and won the trophy, a Garrison Brewing Company beer pitcher on a wooden plaque.

Having ended the game at the hour mark rather than the end of the third period, many of the players from Team 2 hoping for possible redemption were disappointed.

“We weren’t expecting a half-time break, so if that were to have been cut out, we could have at least finished our game,” said Alex MacDonald, defenceman for Team 2. “A shorter break could have made a difference in determining whether we win or lose.”

Regardless of their loss, Team 2 left the final game happy with their season.

Charlotte Wilson, Team 2, talks about the King’s Cup.

The loss of the King’s Cup was a shame, said MacDonald, but considering the point of the league is to play the game and enjoy oneself, the season went well.

The team played well considering the minimal amount of practices, said Team 2’s Charlotte Wilson.

“It sucks that we lost, but the season was overall a lot of fun and I’m definitely going to be coming back next year,” said Wilson.
