Road hockey games raise cash

United Way of Greater Victoria beneficiary of tournament proceeds

After a few-day rain delay, Team Vector defeated all comers in the Harbour Road Fall Classic street hockey tournament.

Raven Marine Services at 2266 Harbour Rd. provided the pavement on Oct. 25 and area employees assembled four teams to battle for the coveted trophy and raise money for the United Way of Greater Victoria.

The fourth annual fundraiser included teams from Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites, as well as Vector Yacht Services.

Cheering could be heard down the street and across to the Van Isle marina, prompting spectators to investigate what all the excitement was about. In the end, Team Vector was victorious with a 3-2 win over Marcia’s Meteors. Vector Yacht Services on Harbour Road are proud holders of the rather hefty hand-built, propeller trophy.

The fundraiser also included a barbecue, bake sale and raffle. The event raised close to $1,000 for the charity, pushing the four-year total to nearly $4,000.
