The Nelson Atom A squad are the West Kootenay Minor Hockey League champions for the 2013-2014 season.

The playoffs were held last weekend in Beaver Valley.  The weekend didn’t start off well for the Nelson Leafs, who lost 4-2 to the PW Wildcats. This was the Leafs first loss in league play all season.

But, it didn’t stop Nelson from coming on strong against Trail later that day where they won 4-1.

The semifinals were held on Sunday morning where the Leafs faced the Spokane Chiefs.  After a scoreless first period, it was anyone’s game.

The Leaf’s muscled through a game thriller, coming ahead with a final score of 3-2 which put them in the Banner game against the same Wildcats that they lost to the day before.

This time things were different as the locals finished the weekend with a 5-0 victory.

Andrew Brabender earned the shutout in the win.

The championship team is made up of the following coaches and volunteers including Greg Aandrusak (head coach), Sandy Boyd (trainer), Shandy Mowery (assistant coach), Pete Quinn (assistant coach) Lisa Quinn (manager) and the following players; Pax Arrowsmith, Ethan Bennett, Seamus Boyd, Kaleb Percival, Joe Davidson, Dylan Mowery ,Matt Erickson, Bryce Sookro, Mason Scott, Andrew Brabender, Nolan Dergousoff, Callum Cutler, Noah Quinn, Amran Bhabra, Kelton Forte and Rhett Hamilton.
