Three BWC Atom teams are competing again this year in the top group of the GVC conference placement round.
North Shore Winter Club, with two teams in the group, is the only other association with multiple teams in the conference.
Here’s a quick overview of how the top three BWC Atom teams are doing so far:
Atom A1 – 5-0-0-5, 39 GF – 5 GA
The BWC Atom A1s have continued where they left off last week, with a trio of wins and sportsmanship points in their last three outings, which means they hold a perfect record at the moment.
They are on top of their defensive game, with a league leading total of only 5 goals against in the five games they’ve played.
In their third placement game October 15, BWC A1 squared off against the Richmond Jets A1, winning 6-3.
They faced the North Shore Winter Club A2 in Game 4 the next day, posting an 11-0 shutout over the Winterhawks #2 team.
In their fifth game last Sunday, they battled the Vancouver Thunderbird A1, posting a 1-0 shutout, for their third SO so far.
