Len Villano’s Pic of the Week: Door County Pond Hockey Tournament

Last weekend was the Door County Pond Hockey Tournament on Kangaroo Lake in Baileys Harbor. It was an exciting day with teams of various skill levels. But the championship game between the Fitzgerald Freighters and the Flying Wombats took it up a few notches. Super fast and aggressive. I liked this photo because it shows how aggressive a match can get with a group of players fighting for the puck and trying for a goal or to defend the goal. I positioned myself by the goal for what I thought would be the best angle and love how the players line up into the classic portrait-painters pyramid shape. The determination on their faces, the down player proving wombats can’t fly, and the additional players fighting their way to the puck. An exciting day to be in Door County.
