NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The Nashville Fire Hockey team held its annual 9-11 Memorial game on Saturday without spectators in the stands.

The team played at the Ford Ice Center in Bellevue against organization 7th Element Athletics and honored first responders who have died and people living with and have died from cancer.

The teams raised money online to support local charities and causes.

Organizers said the lack of fans watching wouldn't stop the game from happening.

"We get to see each other, you're seeing old friends and you're seeing people you've worked side by side with," said Brian Bailey with 7th Element Athletics. "Pretty amazing to be able to get these types of people together and get out there and have a little fun."
