Recap of weekend games for local hockey teams

Submitted by Windermere Minor Hockey Society

The Atom Rockies travelled to Banff last weekend. Friday night they played Red Deer, winning 8-2. Saturday they beat the Banff Bears 5-2. Sunday morning the Atom team faced Okotoks in a nail biter game. At the end of the second, the game was tied 2-2, but Chase Kinsey scored the winning goal in the third, giving them a 3-2 win. In the tournament final, the team played an Atom team from Edmonton. They played hard and won the game 6-3, winning the A pool in the Banff Tournament! They were awarded a $200 gift certificate from Boston Pizza.

The rest of the Atom team joined part of the Peewee team to participate in a Calgary Peewee hockey tournament in Canal Flats. Because of the weather, the tournament had a cancellation so a Mixed Peewee/Atom team was put together to join the Peewee team that was already in the tournament. The Atoms found out that 2 years difference in ages makes a real difference in skating and skills. The Mixed White team lost all their games but Brayden Roe had a hat trick in one of the games, and Jesse MacIntosh had to stand on his head at times to stop the multitude of shots. The Blue team ended up winning 1 game, and tied another using some Atoms on their team. Tobias Andruschuk scored his first goal as a Peewee.

The other Peewee team had a disappointment on Thursday night when Kimberley cancelled due to weather. However, they played Cranbrook on Friday evening, losing an exciting game 3-2. Ryan Tamelin stopped over 50 shots, and Paddy Donahue and Teagan Pike scored the goals.

The Novice team travelled to a 12-team Novice tournament in Whitefish. There were teams from as far away as Missoula and Kalispell. The team played Whitefish in their first game on Friday and won 12-2. They played again on Friday against Cranbrook M&R and again won 7-2. On Saturday they played Cranbook Key City and won that game 17-2. These 3 wins put them at the top of their pool and they met Medicine Hat in the Championship game on Sunday. They boys played hard, but lost that game 7-2, coming in second in the 12 team tournament.
