Junior hockey catch up

Atom Thunder start off their season with a string of wins.

The Atom Thunder played a double header last Sunday against Williams Lake, winning both games.

The Thunder won both games handily, with a three point lead, 8-5, in the first and an even greater spread in the second, 12-4.  The kids played very well for their first games.

“I was quite happy with how they handled themselves,” Coach Gord Salmons said.

“We have a very young team this year with nine first year Atom players.  But we have a pretty solid core of second years as well.”

The team hosts their home tournament this weekend starting Friday.  They play at 5 p.m. Friday against 100 Mile, 8:30 a.m. Saturday against Vanderhoof, 4:30 p.m. Saturday against P.G. and 6:30 a.m. Sunday against Williams Lake.  The finals are at 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
