What is there to do after pond hockey? Watch some more hockey!
EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River takes hockey to the extreme. And what better weekend to see that than pond hockey weekend. 

"Pond hockey is super challenging because if you're used to playing on ice, you come out here and it's rough and it's raw," said Susie Kelly from the team, 'MsConduct' out of Chicago.

But off the lake, there's more hockey being played in Eagle River. The Falcons play at night in the dome that's right around the corner from the tournament on Dollar Lake.

And pond hockey weekend means it's the Falcons' rivalry game with the Mosinee Papermakers.

"Obviously, it's fun. The energy of the crowd and the people, it helps keep us going," said player, Bobby McDonald.

They need that extra energy after playing in the pond hockey tournament all day before their big game.

"They come out here and support everybody and then they welcome us to their stadium and games at night," said Kelly.

Because after a long day playing hockey, why not go watch some more hockey?

"Hockey's kind of a unique sport where whether you play against each other or not, you're a big family," said McDonald.

A big family that cheers for each other on the lake, and in the dome.
