The Coon Rapids Guns and Hoses team, made up of Coon Rapids Police Department and Coon Rapids Fire Department personnel, took on the Rum River Lawmen, a team made up of Anoka County Sheriff’s Office personnel, in a tune-up of sorts before the Guns and Hoses take on Legacy Christian Academy at 2:30 p.m., May 12 at Coon Rapids Ice Center. Money raised from the game will go toward the ACBC Food Shelf.

May 2, the Lawmen scored the game winner in the final two minutes for a 6-5 final after Guns and Hoses scored three times in the final period to tie the game.

Guns and Hoses goalie Nick Stolarczyk, a Legacy Christian Academy 2012 graduate, posted 50 saves to keep the Coon Rapids contingent in the contest. Guns and Hoses forward Jason Ploof led the team with two goals.

Guns and Hoses will have an Anoka Police Department officer and former University of Minnesota goalie Brent Solei in the net against Legacy Christian Academy.
