HOCKEY stars raised more than £900 by taking part in a charity match last week.

Bracknell Bees came out victorious when they beat Bracknell Hornets 15-3 at the Hive on Wednesday, December 27.

As well as a thrilling game of ice hockey to keep scores of spectators entertained, there were also special signed shirts on offer for fans.

All proceeds raised will be pledged to Orchid, a charity which helps save men’s lives through research and awareness into penile, testicular and prostate cancers.

A post on the Bees’ Twitter page reads: “And a quick update - we raised a fantastic £900 for @OrchidCancer through the sales of @bracknellbees & @BracknellHornet special jerseys, with more money to come through the collecting boxes and the sale of all the ribbon pin badges.

“The final figure will come in January.”

The Bees got off to a flyer on the night and had scored seven goals in the first period.

Hornets had pulled one back through Danny Hughes but Bees were staring victory dead in the face.

Four more goals came in the fourth period as Bees ran riot over their opponents, who struggled to get into the game.

Hughes pulled two goals back for the Hornets in the fourth period to complete his hattrick but more goals from Josh Tetlow and Frankie Bakrlik ensured a thrilling victory for the bees.

The charity match was officiated by Tony Lack and Justin Lalonde, who gave up their time free of charge.

Another social media post added: “A huge thank you to everyone that came to tonight’s Bees v Hornets Orchid Charity match at The Hive!.Your support for the teams and charity is greatly appreciated.”
