A group of exhausted players in Nanaimo, B.C., spent Tuesday night in their own beds after scoring what they hope is a world record for the longest street hockey game.
Organizer Tali Campbell says the 40 players faced off at 8 a.m. Friday morning and didn’t stop until late Tuesday – 105 hours and 44 minutes later.
Campbell says that’s 27 minutes longer than the previous record.
He says players slept in three-hour shifts and were supported by an army of volunteers including score- and timekeepers, kitchen staff and fundraisers.
Two players needed hospital treatment for minor injuries suffered during the marathon game, but otherwise the event went off without a hitch.
The team used the game to raise money for several charities.
