Grand Forks Atom Bruins win Creston tournament

The young Bears beat four teams, including another Bruins squad

Grand Forks’ Atom Bruins won their first tournament of the season, beating four teams at Creston’s Johnny Bucyk Arena last weekend.

The U-11’s got off to a great start Friday, Nov. 26, winning against the Cranbrook Bucks. Their victory turned into a winning streak Saturday, when the boys put down Creston’s Storm and Bruins (no relation), according to Angelina McIver, whose son Buck plays for the Grand Forks squad.
