RiverKings Face-Off Field Trip

The Mississippi RiverKings have quietly taken the Central Hockey League by Storm this season..

But, there was nothing quiet about their game today against the Bossier-Shreveport MudBugs at the DeSoto Civic Center..

That's because the game is part of the annual RiverKings Face-Off Field Trip.

The D.C.C. Almost filled to capacity with school children from Shelby and DeSoto Counties..

More than 7,000 youngsters, armed with all kinds of noisemakers..signs and just plain enthusiasm were treated to a morning away from classes for the 10am game.

The RiverKings tried to oblige on the Ice..fighting the Mudbugs blade and puck before falling 2-to-1.

The 'Kings next game is at the Texas Brahmas Friday night.
