Revelstoke atoms win Okanagan valley championships

Revelstoke Atom Grizzlies win Okanagan Valley Championships in Chase this weekend.

By Stacey Grimm, Revelstoke Minor Hockey

The Revelstoke Junior Grizzlies travelled to Chase, BC this past weekend representing North Okanagan in the Valley Championships. It was a whirlwind journey as they played six games in 10 days.

They qualified for the Valleys on March 2, beating out Lumby in a close 4-3 game to take the league playoff banner.

At the district tournament they started strong with a 7-2 win over West Kelowna with points from Ryan Howe, Sawyer Grimm, Brodie Patry, Kurtis Kinoshita, and Thomas MacDonald.

Game two ended in a tie against Logan Lake, whom they would meet in the finals on Sunday. Donald Robichaud took the lead in scoring in their second game with two goals.

Revelstoke finished off Saturday by playing the host team Chase, with a strong win and a shutout for the goalie Thomas Campbell.

The final playoff game against Logan Lake was full of intensity. Revelstoke’s lead-off goals in period one and two were scored by Justin Kungl and then Sawyer Grimm. In the third, Logan Lake retaliated to tie it up. Goals by Noah Overwater and Brodie Patry, assisted by Thomas MacDonald and Zachary Burke, led Revelstoke to the win, but not before Logan Lake pulled their goalie to come within one point.

With a final score of 4-3, Revelstoke won the championship.

A combination of teamwork, high calibre coaching and a goalie who can stand on his head, allowed the boys to hold the banner proudly.

Many thanks to all the community partners who supported the team in the playoffs including: Community Futures, Revelstoke Credit Union, Revelstoke History of Hockey and Grizzly Auto.

Congratulations to the triple banner Atom team: league champions, playoff champs and valley champions!
