Simons Valley Storm earns gold at Atom Chinooks tournament

First place: Simons Valley Storm
Second place: Calgary Southwest Cougars
Third place: Elk Valley Wild
Chris Davis - Pincher Creek's Atom Chinooks hosted a six-team tournament last weekend at the MCC Arena.  After three days of non-stop action, the Simons Valley Storm (Calgary) emerged as the tournament champions after a dramatic final game on Sunday against the Calgary Southwest Cougars that had to be decided with a shootout.  Elk Valley Wild placed third after defeating the Chinooks in the bronze game.



The tournament began on Friday evening December 2 and concluded Sunday afternoon after a total of 11 games.

Participating teams:  Pincher Creek Chinooks, Simons Valley Storm (Calgary), Trails West Wolves (Calgary), Elk Valley Wild, Calgary Southwest Cougars, Okotoks Thunderbolts.

The tournament was sanctioned by Hockey Alberta but was not affiliated with the Central Alberta Hockey League (CAHL), of which the Chinooks are a member team.  Therefore the tournament results don't affect the participating teams' regular season stats.
