The Newtown and Joel Barlow high school hockey teams will attempt to play their first annual Warrior Cup game on Friday, February 28. The game is slated to be played at Danbury Ice Arena at 7:50 pm. It was originally to have been played on February 5 and again on February 13, but snow postponed it both times.
The teams are joining forces to raise funds to support the Wounded Warrior Project. Donations will be accepted at the game and online using this link: https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org/individual-fundraising/Newtown. The teams are striving to raise $10,000.
NHS will honor Newtown Police Officer Matt Hayes (a Wounded Warrior) in a special pregame ceremony.
Admission is free for military members and veterans. All donation checks collected at gate or through billing should be made out to Wounded Warrior Project or WWP. Monetary contributions are tax deductible.
More details about the game may be found at each team’s website: newtownhockey.com and barlowhockey.com.
