Clearwater Atoms won one game, tied one and lost two as they hosted an eight-team tournament last weekend at the Sportsplex.

“We had some tough fought games and ended up seventh out of the eight teams, only missing the 5/6 game after going plus/minus with one of the other teams,” said Craig Shook, one of the coaches.

“The team played well and had fun,” he added. “We have a lot of players and some quite new players, which is great to see for Clearwater Minor Hockey.”

Next game for the Atoms will be on Jan. 13 in Ashcroft.

Next home game will be on Jan. 20 against Merritt.
