A small, fun-loving group of mostly first-year Atom aged Spartans competed in Hollyburn Country Club’s three on three tournament just before Christmas. The kids competed hard and played a thrilling and entertaining final game against a team from the Arbutus Club that was reinforced by some Vancouver Thunderbird Atom A1 players. The game saw end-to-end action with spectacular goaltending from the Spartans’ Aiden Thomas and tremendous efforts from Cooper Humphries at forward and Alex Oberti on D as well. The game finished in a 10-10 draw and went into overtime. The overtime period was just as thrilling with the Spartans being awarded a penalty shot which was ultimately unsuccessful. The Arbutus Club prevailed in the end in what was a memorable and exciting game and tournament.
