Valemount’s Ryan Bernicky takes his second rebound shot at close range, but McBride’s goalie made an insane save, one of many that kept McBride in the driver seat most of the night.

It was a close match to start the charity hockey match between McBride and Valemount’s adult hockey teams last weekend. McBride came out on top defeating Valemount 9 to 5, but it was the Valemount Food Bank that won the day.

The game was even at first, but McBride’s large bench helped them deliver a resounding win over the newly tuckered Valemount Old Puckers.

Valemount Food Bank president Marian Plummer thanked all who donated and the Old Puckers for spearheading the event and McBride’s Old Timers Hockey Team for making the long trip over.

Brian Shawara and pals played good heads up hockey, but their deep bench paid of in spades by the end of the night.

The Old Puckers still have a chance to redeem themselves. On Saturday, November 30th there is a rematch at the Robson Valley Recreation Centre in McBride.

Admission will again be by donation of non-perishable food items or cash.
