EMPERORS WIN ONLY ATOMS TOURNAMENT
Picture: Norwest AtomsEMPORERS (Club Press) - Congratulations to our Atoms team who won the 2011 Only Atoms Tournament held in Newcastle on the week-end. The Emperors played well all
week-end with all players showing huge commitment despite many of our players being sick as well as demonstrating superb play-making skills often not seen in Atoms Hockey.
We thank our wonderful coach, Dave Burton, who led the team to victory. The Emperors have attended the tournament, which included teams from Brisbane and Canberra since its
inception in 2007.Our Atoms played 9 games over the week-end to get to the Gold Medal match on Sunday night, which they won 3 - 1 against Canterbury. This was a hard fought victory against
formidable opponents with all players contributing mightily to a solid team performance.6 of our team are moving up to peewees next year so this is a fantastic way for them to finish their last year of Atoms. The kids had a blast and have made new friendships
over the week-end. We thank all the other teams and the organisers for making this such a fantastic event.Congratulations to Lara, Anna, James D, Joel, Brad, Marcus, Ben, James B, Jeremy, Paul, Dylan, Nikolay, Jack and our fantastic Goalie James. You are a bunch of great kids
and we are very proud of your achievement and the way you conducted yourselves this week-end.GO EMPERORS!
