Congratulations to the Peewee Rockets for winning gold!
After a wonderful NDHL playoff weekend the Atoms moved on to play in the Super Sunday weekend. They played in both North Bay and Trout Creek.
Their first game was played at Pete Palangio arena in North Bay at 11:45 am against the Temiscaming Shores Puckhounds. The team was anxious, played well, but the Puckhounds managed to sneak in 5 goals leaving us with a loss of 5-2 in the third.
The Rockets then moved on to their 2nd game of the day, playing in Trout Creek at 3:00 pm against the North Bay Trappers. The team was on a roll winning 9-0.
Come Sunday morning they played in Trout Creek again at 9:00 am against the Verner Bulls. They were on a winning streak, taking the lead which ended in an 8-3 win. They made it to the finals !!!
At 5:00 pm in North Bay they met up with the Temiskaming Puckhounds once again. Knowing how well they were playing there was no doubt that they could be champs. Working very hard through all 3 periods, keeping the puck out of their end and pushing through, the Rockets took the gold and the banner, winning 3-2.
Amazing team effort played by all !!! We are all so proud !!!
The Mattawa Rockets hosted the Atom playoff at the end of February at Mike Rodden Arena.
The Atoms had a very unfortunate beginning to their playoff weekend… There was a region wide power outage, which lead to game cancellations on Friday, February 24th and Saturday, February 25th.
The team was then placed directly into the semi finals at 11:15 am on Sunday morning against the Astorville Vipers and took the lead with 8-1.
The team then advanced into the finals at 5:15 pm. Prior to the game there was a brief celebration and announcement on having Mr. Chick Webster who played in the NHL for the New York Rangers in the building. There were four (4) generations at the game, with Noah Webster, his great-grandson playing for the Atoms rockets. The final game was played against the Temiscaming Royals; it was a nail bitter throughout… The game ended with a 2-1 score, which means the Atom rockets did it again! We took the gold.
The coaching staff couldn’t be any more proud. The team will now move on to Super Sunday next weekend March 4-5th. We wish the Atoms the best of luck in their upcoming games.
Hope that you will come out and support the Rockets!
