Guns vs hoses: Police take on firefighters in charity hockey game

Posted: Updated:

Lace up the skates, break out the puck, it's time for some hockey. It'll be local firefighters versus police officers this Saturday in a showdown on the ice, and it is not just bragging rights up for grabs, they are also trying to raise money.

Allen Cooke is a North Charleston police officer who was injured on the job in a car accident. Four months into the recovery process, while all his medical bills are paid for by the department, he is hurting for living expenses. "We have workers comp that covers part of our bills and payments but still there are other things. It's good for someone like me to not focus on do we have enough money. I can just focus on getting healed."

The Police department hockey team is dedicating their funds to him. The firefighters are raising money for their funeral fund, where they travel to other firefighters funerals to represent. In the end, Jimmy Evans, captain of the firefighters team says, "It all comes down to helping our brothers out."

Make sure to come out and enjoy the show on Saturday. The game starts at 5 PM at Carolina Ice Palace, tickets just $10.

Co-captain of the police team Sean Reiter says, "I would definitely like to pack the house. The money will go to a good cause and it will help motivate us on the ice if we have full stands."
