Nearly 100 teams competed this weekend in an annual tournament that celebrates New Hampshire's hockey heritage.

The 1883 Black Ice Pond Hockey Championship is named for the year the nation's first organized hockey game was played on a frozen pond at St. Paul's School in Concord.

The tournament, which was created in 2011, is held on the pond at White Park. Teams compete 4-on-4 with no goalies and no nets — the goals are boxes with slots cut into them.

This year's championship started Friday, ended Sunday and includes 92 teams in six divisions.
