Royals roll to gold in Golden
The Cranbrook Atom B Royals snagged first place over the weekend in the Golden Atom Rockets Tournament.
The Royals went undefeated through four games facing teams from Banff, St. Albert, Bow Valley and Invermere to advance to the gold medal game.
It was an East Kootenay final as the Royals faced off against the Windermere Valley Rockies, coming up with a 10-3 win to bring home the gold.
The Royals have a few exhibition games left in the season as they prepare for the Banner Tournament in early March.
