The Atom Eagles hosted their home tournament over the weekend and came out victorious.

Teams from Kamloops, Kelowna and Lillooet were among seven that participated in the tournament.

The Eagles played their first game a 7 a.m. Saturday against the Kamloops Vikings. This contest resulted in a 3-3 tie.

The Eagles were back on the ice at 1 p.m. Saturday, to do battle with the  Kamloops Vipers. The Vipers suffered a 10–1 loss to their Sicamous hosts.

At 7 p.m. Saturday, the Eagles were back in action to play the Kelowna Silver Bullets. The Eagles came away largely unscathed with a 15-2 win.

The Eagles final game of the tournament  was Sunday at 4 p.m., once again against the Kamloops Vipers. It was a great game, with Sicamous earning an 8–4 win.

This is the second tournament win for the Atom team this season. They participated in the Logan Lake tournament in November, along with teams from Vernon, Chilliwack, Logan Lake, Merritt, Abbotsford, Williams Lake and Salmon Arm, to come out the tournament champions.

The Atom Eagles have been learning about giving back to  community by raising money for various groups. In November, they were raising money for cancer research and raised $130.25.  For their home tournament, they wanted to raise money for the local food bank to help provide turkeys for the Christmas hampers. They wound up raising more than $100 in the two-day tournament.
