Adam Will (two goals, two assists) and Brett Dobray (two goals, one assist) also had multiple goal efforts, while Danny Shields, Dylan Quinn and Eric Ransom all had a goal and two assists.

Colten Hayes and James Jackson had the other goals.

The 15 goals was a season high for the Langley squad.

Langley improved to 6-10 while Nanaimo fell to 5-10.

The Thunder are back in action on Wednesday (June 29) when they visit the unbeaten Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs (15-0) at the Coquitlam Sports Arena.
