The Reading Firefighters gave their all during the 11th annual Battle of the Badges Hockey Game, but it was the police department who was on fire! The Reading Cops took the victory by a score of 6-2, with Officer Pete Karpovich scoring 5 of the police goals (yeah he's good). The game was a great success and more evenly matched than the score suggests. Scoring for the Reading Firefighters were Dan Wassel and Jim Salanik. The Fire Department still leads the series by a record of 6-4-1. All of the funds collected at the battle of the badges game go towards the BOB scholarship fund which donates scholarships to the children of police and fire department personnel.
Thanks to Team Captain Andrew Rebuck for the information
