The Hoses take it

An invigorating 10th annual Guns N’ Hoses Hockey game gave spectators chills last Friday, March 30.  The Police squad squared off against the Fire Department in what has become a yearly tradition.

Somerville Fire Department won 10-1. Detective Dante DiFronzo scored the single goal for the police department.  “He was our sniper,” said Lieutenant Bill Rymill, captain of the team for ten straight years.

Rymill organized the Guns N’ Hoses game ten years ago to raise money for charity. “Its never been about the scores,” said Rymill.

Sadly, Rymill is handing off the responsibility of captain of the team to Sergeant Jeffrey DiGregorio.

Rymill jokingly said he is convinced Mark Wahl is going out to local high schools and recruiting for the Fire Department.

    Congratulations to the Somerville Fire Department and Somerville Police Department hockey teams for putting on their annual charity hockey game. Kudos to the Firefighters for their win. And Kudos to Mark Wall aka “the pocket rocket.” Not only can he play hockey, but he comes from a distinguished family of present and past Somerville firefighters.

    A great game and a great bunch of public servants on both sides. God bless all of you.
