  • Dec. 2, 2015 7:00 a.m.

The Nakusp Falcons Atom hockey team travelled to Lumby to participate in the Monashee Classic hockey tournament facing teams from Vernon, Kelowna, Langley, Kamloops, and Lumby.

Their first game was against the Vernon Hornets winning 8-4, their second game started just two hours later against the Kelowna Outlaws, with Nakusp coming out on top 12-3 and getting a by to the semi-finals. Going into Sunday’s games they knew their competition would be at the top of the pack, with a noon game against the Langley Cobras, which proved just that. It was a heated battle with Nakusp coming out on top 7-4. The championship game started at 3:30 p.m. against the Lumby Stars. This would be their biggest challenge as the Lumby team was undefeated this season.

When the puck dropped, the intensity was fierce with both teams giving their all. In the third period Nakusp was up by two goals, 5-3, when Lumby scored with two minutes left narrowing the margin to one. They pulled their goalie shortly after and Nakusp was able to get an empty netter. With a final score of 6-4 the Falcons brought home the Monashee Classic trophy.

The Atom Falcons are now undefeated 12-0 in the season. Congratulations to the team and coaches on an outstanding performance.
