The West Kootenay Minor Hockey Association Atom House Playoffs were co-hosted by the Grand Forks and the Boundary Minor Hockey Associations, with games being played in both Grand Forks (Pool A) and Midway (Pool B).

Spokane won the Atom B Division Pool A banner.

Castlegar2 won the Atom B Division Pool B banner on Sunday afternoon in Midway. Both teams in the final game in Midway were from Castlegar so the kids are classmates during the week and rivals on the weekend.

“It was a great weekend of hockey in both arenas,” Boundary Minor Hockey Association president Rob Payne told the Times at the end of the weekend.

“It was very well hosted, very respectful and some really great hockey was played. We look forward to another great season coming up.”
