Nelson novice grad helps Okanagan team to title
Nelson’s Nolan Dergousoff and his Okanagan Lakers spring hockey team captured the Mainland Cup in the Lower Mainland late last month. The eight-year-old spring hockey team is made up primarily of players from Vernon, but the line-up is bolstered with kids from Salmon Arm, Prince George, Houston and of course Nelson. The team ended up winning the Platinum Cup after beating the Kelowna Heat 3-2 in the semi-final and then the Penticton Hornets in a game that went into double overtime and a shootout. Dergousoff played senior novice this last season in Nelson.
