‘Piggy Smalls’ wins annual Byemoor Boars Cup 2017

The Byemoor arena parking lot was busy this past weekend as people came to watch four teams battle it out for the annual Boars Cup 2017.

The Byemoor arena parking lot was crowded with vehicles this past weekend as people came to watch four teams battle it out for the annual Boars Cup 2017 with Piggy Smalls or Team 3 winning it.

“It’s just a fun tournament to fundraise for the Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society, that’s how it was started and has continued ever since,” said Rebecca Schofer, one of the two main organizers, the other being her husband, Len Schofer.

With four teams being drawn up by the committee to make for fun and even teams, there were 12-13 players and a goalie on each.

This year’s teams were Uncle Porksters, Ham Solos, Piggy Smalls and Hambo Slices, with Piggy Smalls winning this year, while Hambo Slices won the B final.

“I’ve been involved with the Boars Cup for the last three years, however Len and his family have been organizing it for 31 years now,” Schofer explained.

According to Schofer, the event brings in money for Byemoor’s Ag Society, as well as local businesses such as the Byemoor Bar.

“It’s always a fun weekend for everyone, from players to local spectators,” Schofer added. “Many local guys on these teams have been playing since they were 15, so it’s kind of special.”

As with most events, this too wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the wonderful volunteers, said Schofer.

“We would like to thank all the volunteers who help make this possible, from running the concession, making the teams, and making sure everything runs smoothly they are a real blessing,” Schofer added. “A huge thank you also to all the players who take part in this tournament and their supporters and spectators who make it really special each year.”
