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.
