Over the long weekend, the Sooke Atom A boys played in the Saanich Atom Remembrance Day Tournament.  They were placed in a very competetive Tier 1 and 2 pool. and faced some of their toughest competition of the season.  After claiming seven out of nine possible points in round robin play and taking down the home team, Saanich A, in a gritty 4-1 battle, the Atom A boys moved on to the semi-finals to take on Comox A.  In what was a very intense game between two skilled teams, Sooke won by a score of 5-2 and solidified their spot in the gold medal game.  Later that same day, Sooke Atom A hit the ice to play the championship game against Langley A3, an extremely strong team from the mainland.  Sooke scored on their first shift, played with drive and determination, showed great skill and sportsmanship…. Ultimately coming out on top 6-1 and taking home their second consecutive gold medal of the season!  Kudos to the players, coaches and parents for another very successful tournament!
