Ice hockey rivals from Peterborough Phantoms and Milton Keynes Lightning prepared for their local derby match with an unusual challenge away from the rink.
Ice hockey is a sport which is fast and furious and its players with a reputation for being some of the toughest in the world but do they have a softer side?
This was different sort of challenge for British League ice hockey rivals Ross Green from Milton Keynes Lightning and Peterborough's Cam McGiffin ahead of Saturday's derby match.
Instead of their hockey sticks they were judged on their skills with scissors, stems and ribbons making floral bouquets.
It's fair to say they're definitely out of their comfort zone, but both were up for this particular battle.
They had 15 minutes to create a stunning bouquet of flowers they'd be proud to give to their loved ones.
Florist Tracey Willis said they did "really quite well" because they had never tried their hand at flower arranging.
Ross Green said his only experience of flowers was occasionally giving them to his girlfriend or mum.
