Fort St. James Stars take home silver medal at tournament

The F.S.J. Minor Hockey Stars took home the silver place medal in the regional atoms tournament after a tense final game against Burns Lake.

Atoms hockey teams throughout the region came together in Fort St. James to slap the puck around in a tournament held at the Fort Forum.

The Fort St. James Starts squared off against the Vanderhoof Bears, Fraser Lake Hawks and the Burns Lake Bruins.

The opening game of the tournament saw the Stars take on the Vanderhoof Bears who suffered an early loss as the Stars beat them with a final score of three to two.

The Stars continued their streak when they took on the Fraser Lake Hawks, managing to score two goals in the first period and an additional five goals in the second period. The Stars beat the Hawks, due largely to the incredible goalie work of the Stars, with a final score of nine to three.

As the Stars moved in to game three their luck ran out as they took on the Burns Lake Bruins and suffered a devastating loss of seven to two.

Burns Lake managed to keep their forward momentum going as decimated the competition and made their way in to the finals.

The Stars showed an impressive level of skill and refinement on the ice and made their way to the finals as well, facing off against the Bruins.

The final match was a “real nail biter” Rachelle Hoffert said as the Stars were down three to four against the Bruins when Stars captain Terrell Goldsmith scored a goal against the Bruins tying the game. To deal with the tie a three-player shootout took place with the Bruins scoring against the Stars on the third round and winning the game and the tournament.

 

The final results were Burns Lake Bruins in first place, Fort St. James Stars in second place and the Fraser Lake Hawks taking home third place.
