Sooke Atom Development Thunderbirds hit the ice at Naden for the Spring Break Classic tournament this past weekend.

After going undefeated  in some close round-robin matches, they took to the ice at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning against Saanich to see who would go through to the gold medal game.  On their winning weekend, they advanced to the big show with a 6-3 victory over Saanich. After some much needed re-fueling and rest time they started play at 11:30 a.m., against their arch-rivals the North Island Eagles. After taking the early lead, the Eagles managed to tie it up. Sooke came back quickly though, going ahead by one.

On a very risky move the Eagles pulled their goalie early for the extra attacker and it paid off for them. It was down to the final seconds when Sooke scored to get the victory. What a great way to end a fantastic season that saw this group travel up and down the Island all winter long! Many thanks to the coaches and parents from the kids!
