Alberni Valley’s atom Bulldogs win tourney in Squamish

Port Alberni’s atom development Bulldogs’ hockey team returned home victorious from a tournament in Squamish earlier this month.

The Bulldogs started the Remembrance Day weekend tourney with a strong 14–2 win over Comox Valley, then followed up with a hard-fought 4–3 win against Surrey. On Sunday, the Bulldogs beat Port Moody 7–1.

The Bulldogs faced Surrey again in the final, another hard-fought battle, according to a team spokesperson. The teams were tied late in the third period when Kodi Fong scored with 16 seconds left, avoiding overtime and giving the Bulldogs the gold medal.
