Pond Hockey Battles Mother Nature

By Fox 40 News Staff.
Some hockey players had to compete with Mother Nature Saturday.

The first Binghamton Pond Hockey Winter Festival brought out 40 teams from across New York. Even though warm weather postponed some games, spirits were high at Chenango Valley State Park.

"You’re making sure that people are aware of things that are going on, mental health is obviously a huge issue especially with budget cuts," said player Sean Kilpatrick. “We have got to put more money back into [mental health institutions] to make sure that these institutions stay around and get people the help they need.”
