The Atom Thunder celebrate their first place finish in Merritt.

Atoms and midgets make their marks

Midget and Atom Thunder see success in tournaments.

The young Thunder teams have seen some success over the last month as both the midgets and atoms finished in the medal in their last tournaments.

The atom Thunder stood head and shoulders over team’s in Merritt last weekend, taking first place in the tournament.

The midget Thunder went to Kelowna at the end of last month and finished third of the 12 teams that competed.

The Midget Thunder started the tournament by beating the West Kelowna team 5-2. The Thunder were in control for most of the game, getting four of their goals in the first period, putting them up 4-0 at the end of the first.

The Kelowna T3 team proved harder, as the game went back and forth to a 4-4 tie. Kelowna popped out to an early lead in the first, but the Thunder reeled them back in the second and through a very tight third that proved to be inconclusive.

The Thunder then went on to tie Whistler, 3-3 in a very tight gam. Both team’s stayed tight through the first and second, while allowing no goals in the third.

The early win combined with two ties was enough to get the Thunder into the bronze medal game against Fort Saskatchewan, who they lost to, 6-1, to take third in the tournament.


This weekend, the novice house league will compete for Quesnel dominance.
