Abbotsford Atom C2’s win local rec hockey tournament

Abbotsford C2’s go undefeated at Atom Rec event over the weekend

The Abbotsford Hawks Atom C2 team wrapped up the 2018-19 hockey season on a high note, winning the Abbotsford Minor Hockey Association’s Atom Rec tournament over the weekend.

The event included the six other AMHA atom teams, as well as a handful of teams from the Lower Mainland and other clubs from across the province.

The C2’s went undefeated at the event, winning all five games they competed in.

After winning all its games in the round robin, the C2’s defeated the AMHA C5 team 5-1 in the quarter-finals on Sunday. They went on to blank the AMHA C3’s 8-0 in the semifinals on Monday, and then earned the tournament championship with a 10-4 win over Ridge Meadows later that day.

The team displayed balanced scoring, with 10 different players lighting the lamp during the tournament. Games took place at both MSA and MRC.

The big local win capped off a successful season for the C2’s, as they also won gold at the Jim Veitch Memorial Tournament back in February and earned bronze at the Merritt Minor Hockey Association’s tournament in December.
