Brandon Bull netted a hat trick and three assists, while Reegan Comeault had two goals and four helpers.

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.

In goal, Ryley Brown made 33 saves for the win.

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.
