EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) - There was blue tape on hockey sticks at Hobbs Ice Arena, and a moment of silence in Chippewa Falls Tuesday as area hockey teams honored the memory of Brooke Kelly.

Kelly, who died in a car accident last week at 14, is the younger sister of Old Abes captain Joe Kelly.

Memorial and Rice Lake players skated with light blue tape - Brooke's favorite color - on their sticks and held a moment of silence before the game. Old Abes players wore special helmet stickers.

In the second period, Joe Kelly scored a goal to give Memorial a 2-0 lead. The Old Abes went on to win 6-2.

Memorial parents and coaches wore #19 pins Tuesday in support of Joe Kelly.

In Chippewa Falls, both the Cardinals and North boys hockey teams gathered for a moment of silence pregame. The Huskies prevailed in overtime, 3-2.

The ECA Stars also paid tribute to Kelly. The Stars lost its game to St. Croix Valley 2-1 in double overtime.
