The Nakusp Arena was a busy place over the weekend. It was the Nakusp Atom Falcons home tournament Jan. 24-26. Teams came from Salmon Arm, Kaslo, Revelstoke and Kamloops.

The Nakusp Falcons were ready to go Friday night and had a 5-3 win over Kaslo in the home opener. Nakusp lost to Revelstoke 8-1 Saturday afternoon but then went on to play the game of the day and won 4-3 in a very exciting, close game against Salmon Arm.

Sunday morning, Nakusp played an amazing game against Kamloops and tied them 3-3.  With the two wins, one tie and one loss it was enough to get Nakusp to the final game against Revelstoke.

The final was an action-packed game with Revelstoke winning in the end. It was an amazing weekend for the Falcons, getting a second place finish in a tournament against some great teams.

A huge thank you to everyone that has come out and supported the Falcons this year.

It is wonderful to see the community come together at the arena and cheer on Nakusp’s future in hockey.

It was a wonderful weekend of hockey and thank you to everyone who helped make this weekend a huge success!
