The Peninsula Minor Hockey Association’s Atom C Major brought home a big win  recently.

The team, made up of players from nine to 11-years-old, travelled to Port McNeil to compete in the Port McNeil Atom Hockey Tournament.

The team went head to head with other teams from around Vancouver Island in the three-game round robin tournament on January 19 and 20.

Their final game saw them play against the Campbell River Atom team.

“We went undefeated in the round robin and when we came up against Campbell River we were 2-0 down,” said Head Coach Mike Harman. “But, we battled back strong and took the win 5-2.”

Coaches from the other teams named Eagles Chance Waldhaus, Braeden Bennett, Adam Vincent and Spencer Harman Peninsula’s Atom C Major MVPs for the tournament with Harman gaining his first ever shutout during round robin play.

The team now sits in second place in their division behind the Saanich Atom C2 team.
