At Local League hockey tournament on the weekend

The following are game summaries for the two St. Marys Atoms teams which competed in St. Marys minor hockey’s 2nd annual Local League tournament this past weekend.

The Nicholson Concrete Atoms started their weekend Friday afternoon with a 5-2 loss to Lucan Irish.

Grayson Gerber and Logan Oke scored for the Rock, who fell behind early but battled back to tie it 2-2. However, Lucan scored three times--including the winner on a powerplay--in the final six minutes of the third to claim the win. Brody Cox had a strong game for St. Marys.

In their second game Saturday afternoon, Jamie Matheson’s Nicholson Concrete crew emerged with a 1-0 victory over Kincardine. Justin Ropp was the goal-scorer, and goalies Parker Levy and Maguire Smale shared the shutout.

The Nicholson Concrete squad met their St. Marys counterparts, the Bickell Built Homes Atoms, in their third game Saturday night. In front of a big crowd, it proved to be quite a game as it went into two periods of overtime before a winner was established.

Regulation time ended with the teams deadlocked 3-3. Justin Ropp, Logan Oke and Brody Cox scored for Nicholson Concrete, while Owen DeBoer had two goals and Mac Hern the other for Bickell Built Homes.

The first five minutes of overtime went scoreless. On a powerplay early in a 10-minute OT period (4-on-3), Grayson Gerber scored to give Nicholson Atoms a 4-3 victory and another game Sunday morning.

In that semi-final game Sunday, the tourney came to an end for the Nicholson Concrete Atoms when they lost 6-0 to Dorchester No. 3 Dragons.

The Bickell Built Homes Atoms also started their tourney Friday afternoon, dropping a 4-2 decision to Dorchester No. 3. It proved to be an exciting game for the big crowd on hand.

Dorchester led 2-1 after the first period. Jacob Wright scored for St. Marys. After Luke Richardson tied it 2-2 early in the third, Dragons quickly answered with the winning goal. Dorchester then tacked on an insurance tally.

Owen DeBoer assisted on both Rock goals. The game featured good goaltending at both ends of the ice, with Connor McKichan going the distance for Scott Frayne’s squad.

In their second game Saturday afternoon, the Bickell Built Homes Atoms evened their record at 1-1 with a 4-1 victory over Saugeen Shores. Luke Richardson scored twice for St. Marys, while the singles went to Owen DeBoer and Mac Hern.

The Bickell Atoms were eliminated Saturday night after suffering a 4-3 double-overtime loss to the Nicholson Concrete Atoms. Owen DeBoer, with two, and Mac Hern scored in the loss.

Tourney notes:

--Before the tournament, Durham dropped out of the Bantam division and was replaced by Lambeth.

--Kristene McCurdy, the SMMHA president, did another great job as tourney convener on the weekend. “Thanks to all the volunteers for their help,” McCurdy said Sunday. The Local League tournament will continue, she told the Independent.
