Those looking forward to enjoying high-level hockey this upcoming season had the chance to come out and support the new team on Saturday, either by showing off their athletic prowess or just enjoying a few pints at the sidelines.
That’s because fundraising for the newly-formed Pontiac Senior Comets has revved up as anticipation builds, and a double sports tournament featuring ball hockey and softball kicked off the public events in support of the team.
“We have a baseball tournament every weekend here, so we wanted to do something different,” said Danick Boisvert, tournament organizer and Comets organizer.
