The Westport Fire Department hockey team has withdrawn from a first-responder tournament that will benefit Westport-based Save the Children.

The firefighters initially were entered in the tournament planned April 4 to 6 at the Webster Bank Arena. But Save the Children on Friday issued a news release saying the team had pulled out and would be replaced by White Plains, N.Y., firefighters. The global children's relief agency gave no reason for Westport's withdrawal.
