Pincher Creek's Atom Chinooks hosted Magrath at the MCC arena on Saturday morning, November 23.  The Chinooks scored first in the game but were unable to make the most of their opportunities, resulting in a 7-2 win for Magrath.

Both teams were firing on all cylinders for most of this game, and the score was definitely not indicative of the quality of play demonstrated by the Chinooks.

The game was tied 1-1 at the end of the first period.  Magrath was ahead 3-2 at the end of the second period and carried their momentum into the action packed third, which saw Magrath score 4 unanswered goals.  There were a lot of near misses for the Chinooks in the third.  Score aside, Koltyn Kipling did an admirable job in the Chinooks' net.  Chinooks #17 Rylan Bruns scored unassisted in the first period and got an assist from #5 Logan Deley's goal in the second period (see video below).

Top scorer for magrath was #24 Chayse Harris with a hat trick (all three goals unassisted), followed by #22 Cache Olsen with two goals and an assist.  #17 Keston Henry got a got and an assist, #8 Janelle Card got a goal, and #16 Aliza Wetherelt got an assist.

The Atom Chinooks have an away game scheduled against Foremost December 7, followed by a 10:00 am December 8 home game against Picture Butte.
