Match-ups with the Booster Juice hockey team puts the Scotiabank squad on edge.

Just last week the juicers soundly thrashed Scotiabank in a round robin game.

But when all the chips are on the table, the bankers know how to get it done.

Scotiabank downed Booster Juice 13-8 in the atom division final at the Whitehorse Minor Hockey Championships on Sunday at the Canada Games Centre.

“Booster Juice is a really good team and our boys and girls are nervous about playing them because they know how good they are,” said Scotiabank head coach Mike Cozens. “They have some really good players who can really score. So we went in knowing it was going to be a really hard game.”

Scotiabank, who also beat Booster Juice in the final of the Yukon championships, finished the first period up 3-1 and the second up 6-3 before a scoring bonanza in the third.

The bankers kept their heads above water despite having a goalie – Hayden Wallace – who was sick.

“He was throwing up last night but her came and played a great game this morning in the semis and played a great game tonight,” said Cozens.

Forwards Luke Cozens and Max Zimmerman kept the juicers’ goalie busy at the other end of the rink.

Luke scored a total of seven goals in the final while Zimmerman put in four and notched an assist. In fact, over the team’s final three games of the season Luke scored a total of 23 goals.

“They score a lot of our goals,” said Mike of Luke and Zimmerman.

Scotiabanks’ Isaac O’Brien had a goal and assist and Nathan Suttan scored the final goal of the season for the team.

“Our defence played really well. Isaac O’Brien played really well on defence and scored one of our goals,” said Mike.

Booster Juice’s Nevaeh Webb also kept the scorekeepers busy, scoring five goals in the final, putting in four in a row over the second and third periods. Teammate Cooper King scored twice and had an assist and Cam Lindstrom also turned on the red light.

Canadian Tire rolled to the bronze medal with a 7-6 overtime win over Coldwell Banker. Tire’s Trevor Dobbs scored four goals, including the game winner, in the game.
