The Dunny’s Source for Sports A-E Atoms have earned a spot in the International Silver Stick tournament in Pelham early in the New Year.

Here this past weekend, Sean Porter’s Atoms went a perfect 5-0 to capture the Regional Silver Stick title.

On Friday, the Rock defeated Mitchell 3-0 and Dorchester 5-0 in their opening games.

On Saturday, the Dunny’s squad defeated the Collingwood AE3 squad 3-2 to finish round-robin play with a 3-0 record.

In their semi-final game late Saturday afternoon, St. Marys downed Lindsay 3-1 to gain a berth in the final.

Sunday morning’s championship game was a closely-contested affair.

When it was 2-2, Midland hit the crossbar, but the puck stayed. The Rock got the winner with five or six minutes remaining to play, and then tacked on a couple of insurance tallies.

The International Silver Stick tournament will be held in Pelham on the Jan. 11-14 weekend.
