The Buffalo Sabres held their annual Street HockeyFest over the weekend.
The fest, in its twelfth year, saw more than 150 teams participate. Each team, comprised of three players and a goalie, were pitted against another team of the same making. The three-on-three street hockey format was played by boys and girls ages 6-18. The eleven age divisions competed for the championship trophies in their respective age bracket.
The various teams came from near and far — Buffalo, Erie, Pa., Rochester, and Southern Ontario all saw youth participate in the annual event on Sunday. The yearly event was born twelve years ago when organizers closed off sections of Chippewa Street to the few teams willing to play. Since the event has grown in size, the natural move to be closer to First Niagara Center was made. Perry Street and adjacent parking lots were used this year to hold the event.
Seeing your team play in the SuperBowl is priceless. Watching the SuperBowl live in the stands for $1 per week is beyond priceless. Find out how at TicketScore.com, the future of Championship Tickets. Tags: Buffalo, Buffalo Sabres, Hockey, NHL
