December 30, 2016

Play has ended for all Atom teams until January, and this update takes a look at where each North Van Atom Storm team sits in the standings after their first twelve games.

Atom Storm A1 – mid-pack in GVC Flight 2

The Storm A1 had a solid start to their season, putting up a 6-5-1 record through their first twelve games.

The bulk of the team’s wins came from games 3-8 when they went 4-1-0. They scored seven goals in each of those wins.

After a couple losses and a tie, the Storm A1 ended on a positive note, a 3-0 win for the team’s first shutout win of the year.

Here’s a look at the first twelve games for the Storm A1:

11/11/2015 Arbutus Club A1 2 5 L 1 2
11/14/2015 Seafair A2 0 4 L 1 6

12/15/2015 Arbutus Club A1 3 0 W 0 8
A1 Totals: 41 34 6 5 1 8 70

 

The Storm A1 haven’t been a top team in GVC Flight 2, but they have been above average with a +7 goal differential and a record above .500.

Right now they sit fifth of eleven teams in the flight. A number of teams aren’t far behind, so a strong start will be huge for the Storm A1 to distance themselves from those teams.

Here’s a look at the GVC Flight 2 standings:

 

GVC Flight 2 Team Name GP W L T SPt Pts GF GA PIM

11 Squamish A1 12 0 11 1 6 7 35 81 90

 

Atom Storm A2 – ending on a positive note

The Storm A2 wrapped up their first half with a trio of games in the final days of action.

The team came close against Burnaby Winter Club (5-7-0) in a 3-2 loss, and then dropped the next game against Burnaby (4-5-2).

The Storm A2 were able to end on a high note though, as they took down Whistler (6-4-1) by a 4-3 score in their final game before the break.

That was the team’s second win of the season. The Storm A2 have been close in a lot of the games they haven’t won though, so we could see a better second half for the squad.

Here’s a look at how the first half of the Storm A2 season went:

 

Date Opponent GF GA W L T Spts PIM
11/9/2015 Richmond A2 4 4 T 1 4
11/14/2015 Van T-bird A4 2 2 T 1 2

A2 Totals: 27 45 2 8 2 12 24

 

Atom Storm A3

The Storm A3 have had a tough season so far, as they are still in search of a win after twelve games.

The team played their closest game yet but came up just short in a 1-0 loss against Vancouver (5-4-3).

One positive for this team is the discipline, taking fewer penalties than all others in GVC Flight 4 and getting eleven of twelve sportsmanship points.

The Storm A3 will look for that first win when play resumes in January.

Here’s a game-by-game look at the Storm A3 season:
