The Terrace atom select hockey team has ended its season with a win at the Richmond Minor Hockey Atom Spring Classic, March 19 -22.

Playing at a tier higher than normal, the team took a tie and two wins to take the top spot in the tier two division.

The entire team really just came together and played a fantastic tournament right through the roster,” said one the team’s two coaches Kevin Marleau.

Game one was a close one against the host team Richmond, with Terrace managing to tie up the score 2-2 with a minute and a half left on the clock in the third period. Goals went to Trevor Ebeling and Michael Burnett.

Game two was a stronger game against Burnaby and Terrace skated to a 4-1 win, with two goals going to Ebeling, and one each for Carson Olson and Quinn Mullder.

We pretty much dominated that particular game,” Marleau said.

Because of the goal difference in the second game, Terrace went straight to the finals where the atoms met up again with Richmond.

The final game was a real nail biter,” Marleau said, adding strong goaltending by Dalan Marleau helped see the team through to its 2-1 win. Goals went to James White and Kayden Lang.

The atom select team is made up of players from Terrace’s four atom teams.
