Atom A Rockets win Tier 2 championship

The team has ended their season on a high note, says coach

The Atom A Lacombe Rockets have ended their season on a high note. After much battling and a come back, they captured the  Atom A Tier 2 North Central Minor Hockey Association title.

 

The Rockets played the two final games this past weekend, one in Lacombe and the other in Sundre, and took the title.

 

Coach Paul Pearson said the Rockets played this past Friday in Lacombe and won 4-3 in overtime. “On Saturday we played in Sundre and ended up winning 6-5 in triple overtime,” he said.

 

In the beginning of league playoffs, the Rockets were ranked first in the north division, but lost to Sundre, knocking them down in standings.

 

From there, the Rockets edged to make a comeback and played two games against Maskwacis and then won two games against Rocky Mountain House, which meant the Rockets would face off against Sundre again in the finals.

 

“They really are a great group of kids,” said Pearson, now finishing his fifth year of coaching. “The way the other coaches and parents helped out, the kids were very fortunate to have a good group behind them.”

 

The 2014-2015 Atom A Rockets are: Ty Abe, Kieran Armitage, Nash Bamford, William Bos, Brady Bruns, Hudson Cooper, Kalle Jevne, Drayton Leonard, Kyron McBurney, Noah Monchamp, Brody Pearson, Kaysen Tornack, Derek Wagner, Reid Wilson and Devin Yzerman.
