Congratulations to the KMHA Atom Sharks for winning Gold for Kelowna at the Vernon Atom House tournament this past weekend Nov 11-13

The Kelowna Sharks were undefeated in the round robin with 3 wins to sit on top of group B. In the medal round they came up against a very strong and skilled team in the Vancouver Thunderbirds. Trailing 3-2 going into the third period of the Gold medal game against Vancouver they found a way to rally back. Kelowna scored 2 goals in the third, including a shorted handed goal to rally for the win. It was an exciting game and well fought by both teams with the game deciding goal scored only in the last few minutes.

The kids should be proud they came over a great deal of adversity to get there and the win was a fitting result for all their hard work and well deserved.
