The Ridge Meadows Roughnecks spring hockey team won gold at its second tournament of the season, the Steveston Meltdown, in the Atom Major division.

The Roughnecks were undefeated in round-robin play outscoring their opponents 32–2, before losing in a crossover game.

The gold medal game was played under the bright lights of the UBC Thunderbird arena against the BC Grizzlies from Coquitlam.

Despite a rocky start to the final, the Roughnecks took a goal by Dawson Ignatieff as a lead into the second period, before pouncing and scoring four more times in the period, and finally winning 6-3.

In the five game tournament as a whole, the Roughnecks scored 40 goals. They were led by Brendan Chabot with 8, and Dawson Ignatieff and Tyler Crowe with seven each. Crowe also led in assists six making him the top pointgetter.

Defence was equally important to the success of the team, with the blueline being held by Graydan Carr, Edward Riddell, Liam Farrell, Dylan Stephen and Ollie Para.

Goaltender Justin Falconer played strongly in net throughout, starting his first game with a shutout.

The Roughnecks are all Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey players from both rep and house league divisions.
