Atom C2 boys bring home double banner
The Sooke Atom boys played an amazing season winning the South Island League Banner.
The boys did not stop there. They continued on and played their little hearts out to finish off the year with winning the Play Off Banner as well.
It started as a mix-mash team at the start of the year, with under age novice players, brand new players, a first and second year Atom player, and an amazing veteran goalie. It turned out in the end to be the winning mixture for an amazing team.
These kids let it all out on the ice playing what was the hardest weekend of hockey for them. They needed to pull all their determination and endurance out from deep within to beat both Pennisula 3-2 and JDF 5-3 in the finals.
These kids raised their game to win playing short handed the whole weekend with only nine skaters. The team made their coaches, parents and the community proud.
