Mission Atom A1 squad claims championship banners

The squad wrapped up a successful season Monday night, defeating the Surrey Thunder 3-1 in the finals of the PCHA playoffs.

The Mission Stars Atom A1 hockey squad have won both the league and playoff titles.

Sometimes everything just goes right. That’s may be the best way to sum up the season the Mission Stars have had.

The Atom A1 hockey squad wrapped up a successful season in style on Monday night, defeating the Surrey Thunder 3-1 in the final match of the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association playoffs.

The local squad won both the league and playoff championships this year and registered an amazing 28-2-2 record which included its current 18 game winning streak.

Coach Brad Veitch said there is no big secret to the squad’s success.

“It’s just been hard work, team work and buying into not caring who’s getting the goals or who’s getting the credit.”

Veitch said his squad plays well defensively and “just have the ability, no matter who we put out there, to score.”

The squad is made up of nine and 10 year olds who just seem to enjoy playing together.

While the squad has been presented with its championship banners, the season isn’t over yet.

The Stars will be in Osoyoos for a tournament in a few weeks.


Other highlights of the local squads championship season include:

Aldergrove Tournament Champions (5-0) in January;

Surrey Tournament Champions (5-0) in October 2014;

Fraser Valley Conference  League Champions (14-2-2);

Fraser Valley Conference  Playoff Champions (4-0).
