The Toledo Walleye sled hockey team took on the University of Toledo club hockey team.
The Walleye are just one of six sled hockey teams in Ohio as part of the adaptive sports program.
Sled hockey gives people of all abilities a chance to play the game.

Oh, its huge for them. They get to play the game just like everyone else plays. Same rules, same everything else, they just play sitting down, said Doug Roth, coach of the Walleye sled hockey team. Its great. They love it. Its competitive. Everyone goes after it. Everyones just trying to win, so its been great.

There was also a raffle and silent auction.
All proceeds benefited the Walleye Sled Hockey Team.
