UAA alumni win Guns and Hoses game

By KTVA Sports 6:52 AM December 9, 2013

Guns and Hoses charity hockey event reaches 14th year

ANCHORAGE – The Guns and Hoses game has raised money for a number of different charities since it began 14 years ago.

In the last few years, organizers teamed up with the Scotty Gomez foundation to raise money for underprivileged kids. It gives them a chance to play the sport of hockey.

“Hockey is a very expensive sport and as the kids get older there’s a lot of travel,” Guns and Hoses co-founder Tony Schwamm said. “The money goes towards the Scotty Gomez Foundation to help out youth hockey players who can’t afford to play the game.”

Guns and Hoses raised around $20,000 in 2012 and in its best year took in $30,000.

Schwamm said he wants the money to stay in Alaska.

This was the first year a team comprised of UAA alumni faced off against members of the Anchorage Fire Department (AFD). Only about half of AFD members played in college, some UAA alumni, and some with other high-level experience.

“We’ve got some guys who’ve played for UAA, the Aces, they’ve been on junior teams. We’ve had a couple guys who played in the AHL,” Schwamm said. “Sometimes we win a few, sometimes we lose a few.”

The UAA alumni won this year’s game by a score of 4-3.
