Atoms narrowly miss out on gold

Narrowly lose after a four-game winning streak

The Kitimat Atoms’ Orange hockey team that travelled to Smithers last weekend narrowly missed out on winning gold.

The team went undefeated in four games, scoring a total of 49 goals, before they came up against a refreshed Prince Rupert Remax team, the game ending in a heart-wrenching 0-3 loss for the Orange team.

The silver medal winners put on a gutsy performance in the run-up to the final, beating Smithers Atoms C 7-1, Vanderhoof 12-2, Fort Fraser a clean-sweep 18-0 and Houston 12-2.

The team that travelled to Smithers, including coaches Craig Hewitson, Shawn Kennedy and Doug Livingston, and players, Dominik Kennedy, Miles Besler, Evan Tavares, Ryan Haldane, Brad Franklin, Hudson Medeiros, Ethan Boudreau, Levi Hewitson, Lakin Mailloux, Josh Gray, Maxime Bonneau, Bryce Livingston, Ethan Fairbrother and goalie, Kamryn Gutierrez-Perreault.

The Atoms will next compete in tournaments in Terrace from January 3 to 5, and in Hazelton from January 24 to 26.
