Over the weekend Revelstoke hosted a very successful Atom hockey tournament with teams from Kamloops, Kelowna, Salmon Arm, Windermere Valley and Nakusp. The teams all played at least four games with some exciting end to end hockey in many of the games.

Revelstoke ended up on the top of their pool after two days and had a close game against the Kelowna Jetz to make it into the finals.

The final ended up being a rematch against the Windermere A team. Revelstoke came back from a 3-1 deficit against Windermere in the round robin, so they knew the final would be tough. The final game was very close with both teams giving it their all. The score at the end of the second period was 2-2.

In the middle of the third Revelstoke pulled ahead by one and then Windermere scored a minute later. Revelstoke scored with six minutes left to make the score 4-3.

The last 6 minutes were all out hockey action with Windermere pulling their goalie with 1:20 left.    It was a nail biter until the end with Revelstoke coming out on top.

A big thank you to all the sponsors, the referees, friends, families, and to Dennis Berarducci for his enthusiastic announcing all weekend long, and for the Grizzlies Junior B team for their enthusiastic support.
