Last weekend, the Rocky Skate Club hosted an online hockey tournament at the Rockhampton Showgrounds. Players from Rockhampton, Brisbane, Mackay and Cairns have come together for two full days of games. It was the first tournament organized by the club in over 6 years and it was definitely worth the wait. The next generation of online hockey stars with players as young as six and seven had the chance to compete in their very first tournament while the senior A team, King Raiders, a mix of players from Rockhampton and Brisbane showed their skills by bringing home victory in Sunday afternoon’s final in a fast-paced and exciting game against the Puckers with a score of 5-1.
