It was the coldest day of the year so far, at 16 degrees when the players arrived. For most hockey teams that is not a factor. But when you play at the Mercer County Park outdoor rink, it makes for an invigorating atmosphere.

From the opening face-off, it was clear that the Mercer Bulldogs were in for a battle against the more experienced Woodbridge Wolfpack. The goalies for both teams would not give up easy and the game was a tight battle back and forth with each team making some great plays.

In the end, the Mercer Bulldogs showed their true skill in their first game and home opener at Mercer County Park.

The Mercer Bulldogs would like to thank all of the players and coaches from the Woodbridge Wolfpack for such a hard fought contest. The Wolfpack team showed that they are a great team and we look forward to many more games in the future.

Today the Special Hockey community was put on notice... The Mercer Bulldogs have arrived!
