The DC Pickers of Northern Door County beat the Charlestown Chiefs of Milwaukee, 7-4, in the championship game of the first Door County Pond Hockey Tournament Saturday in Baileys Harbor.
Five teams participated in the tournament held on Kangaroo Lake as part of Baileys Harbor's first Winter Carnivale.
Pickers players included Rick Chomeau, Steve Chomeau, Mark Basch, Zack Gillis, Freddie Bexell and Mike Jaeckel.
"This was a great first year," said tournament organizer Brian Fitzgerald. "To get the support of the community and all the volunteers who helped us clear the ice and make these rinks was unbelievable. The teams were thrilled, and we think this could be a big event in the years to come. With a little more advance publicity next year we could see three to four times as many teams, maybe more."
The Baileys Harbor Community Association also hosted dirtbike and snowmobile races on the ice. A photo gallery of the Winter Carnivale can be found online at www.doorcountyadvocate.com.
