As the members of the Falls Police Department hockey team sat in a Harbor Center locker room last July they could barely move.
They had just completed four hours on the ice in their first-ever appearance at the 11 Day Power Play, a community fundraising event to support cancer research.
“That four hours was tough,” Falls Police Capt. Dave Kok, who helps coach the department team, said. “After three and a half hours, you start cramping up and it’s tough to keep going.”
