Forty three hours later, and Prairie College in Three Hills are officially world record holders.
"I think the hardest time for me was the first ten to twelve hours. The first night really, 'cause you're still so far away from your goal. By that morning, people started showing up to work and people started coming in to class, and they were popping over and it kept us going through the day," organizer Andrew Wood explained.
There were 24 players in the game, which lasted from March 28-30. Players could take one five minute comfort break every hour.
"I would organize it again, I don't know if I would participate again in the run," Wood laughed, "It was definitely not enjoyable the whole time during the attempt."
Wood told 99.5 Drum FM that help was key for the game being so successful.
"We had amazing volunteers," he added, "We had tons of volunteers helping us ref and scorekeep."
More than 1,000 goals were scored over the course of the two day game, with Team Orange beating Team Blue 507-494.
"It was crazy, it was back and forth the whole time. My team, the orange team, for almost the entire game we were playing catch up," Wood said, "The last half an hour, you could tell both teams were giving absolutely everything trying to win. It kept the quality of the play up, it was very competitive."
