Metalhead Ned’s First Hockey Experience [Video]

WGRD Pond Hockey Classic: 2014 Championships Coverage

The third annual WGRD Pond Hockey Classic came down to three championship games Sunday afternoon in which the title-clinching teams had plenty of familiarity with each other.

The Dematic Wolves, with a core of former players from Davenport University's American Collegiate Hockey Association Division II national title teams from 2008 to 2010, squeaked out a 10-8 win over the Wolfpack in the Gold Division championship.

Beer 30, with a nucleus of players with experience on Kenowa High School's varsity team, ran away with a 26-9 win over the Cold Ones in the Silver Division championship.

The Grifters defeated Maroon Union 12-9 in the Bronze Division championship. The game was a match-up mostly of players from the same team in a Grand Rapids men's rec league.
