Fayetteville Hopes To Score Another Hockey Team

Posted December 19, 2001 3:27 a.m. EST

— Fayetteville may be able to score a hockey team once again.

This summer, the owners of the Fayetteville Force left the Crown Coliseum after they were unable to move from one league to another.

The Cumberland County Civic Commission has now granted a conditional lease to a local group seeking to bring back minor league hockey to the Crown.

The group has until Mar. 1 to become a member of a recognized league.
