The Invermere Atom Blue team had a great weekend at the Battle of the Borders Tournament in Whitefish, Montana. Theo Wilson was on fire and scored 5 goals over the weekend! Sydnee Brooks got her first goal. Kadie Schick stole the puck several times for breakaways. The entire team played their best, and brought home a silver medal for their efforts.

The other Atom team travelled to the Salmon Arm Tournament. They lost 4-2 to Kamloops, tied West Kelowna 2-2, tied Langley 4-4, and then in their last game had their revenge against Kamloops, winning 6-2. Tobin Donahue scored 4 goals in their Kamloops win. Goals over the weekend were also scored by Jake Gremlich (4), Lane Warriner (3), Tanner Croopley, Cooper Cote, and Gage Nguli. All the players worked hard, played as a team, and passed, with most of the goals being assisted. The defence were stellar in all 4 games.

The Senior Girls went to Wickfest this weekend. There were more than 800 girls and around 50 teams, including Mexico, competing in the 10th Annual Hailey Wickenheiser Tournament in Calgary. The girls competed in five games with two wins, a tie and two losses. They made the final in their pool and fought hard but came home with a silver medal. Hockey wasn’t all they did: they also tried a few other fun events including sledge hockey with the Canadian Female Sledge Team, Wheelchair Rugby, and met Olympic Medalists, giving them many great memories.

The Peewee A team played in Golden on Saturday for their first league game of the year. The Rockies took over a close game in the third and won 9-3. Kaydn Chasse led the way with 4 goals and 1 assist while linemate Caden Williams put up six points. On Sunday they travelled to Canmore for an exhibition game. They trailed for most of the game but put in a strong effort in the third period to win 8-5. Brayden Roe and Karson Schick each scored two goals.

This past weekend, the Bantam Rockies travelled for a league to Kimberley. The boys were down by 2 goals until the middle of period 2 when they turned the game around by scoring 2 goals in the period to tie the game. The first goal was scored on the powerplay by Leif Dubreuil and assisted by Lukas Pfisterer. The next goal was scored by Lukas Pfisterer, unassisted. The boys took the lead with a shorthanded goal in the beginning of period 3 by Lucian Kinsey. Our last goal was scored by Brayden Mastroianni and assisted by Braxton Gulliford and Lukas Pfisterer. The boys started out slowly but quickly turned it around and won the game. Great effort boys!

The Midgets’ home tournament was this weekend. Teams came from Sylvan Lake, Pincher Creek, Duchess, Cranbrook and Creston. Invermere played Pincher Creek Friday and lost 9-1. They played Duchess Saturday morning and lost 7-0. Third game was against Sylvan Lake and they grabbed a win of 4-2. They played Sylvan Lake again for 5th and 6th Sunday morning and lost 8-3. Duchess was the team to come out on top and take first with a 4-2 win over Cranbrook.The Bantam Zone team split their games with South Okanagan, with Ryan Tamelin getting his first shut out in the second game.
