The King’s Cup marks the end of the season for King’s intramural hockey. There are two teams remaining and both are ready to play.

The tournament will be taking place Saturday, March 17, at 12 noon at the Dalhousie Memorial Arena.

After a great season, Team 2 has high hopes for a victorious game.

“We have a really good chance to win because we all play well together,” says Alex MacDonald, for Team 2. “No one goes out there trying to win the game by himself.”

The team has weekly games, which serve as the practice for the players.

In addition, some of the team members have been playing ball hockey to prepare for the big game.

Intramurals are a good option for hockey enthusiasts who don’t play for a varsity team.

“It’s really tough to make any varsity team at Dal, especially for hockey, because the team recruits former junior hockey players,” says MacDonald. “That being said, I play for the intramural league because it gives me a chance to play the game.”
