Intermediate Thunder make provincials
With the season on the line, the Langley intermediate A Thunder came through in the clutch.
The Thunder, backstopped by the stellar goaltending of Giulio del Bianco, came away with a convincing 13-5 victory over the Delta Islanders on Sunday at the Langley Events Centre.
The win advances Langley to this weekend’s provincial championships, the first time the team has accomplished that goal since coming to town a few years ago.
The Thunder were fourth during the regular season in the B.C. Intermediate Lacrosse League with a 13-11 record in the nine-team league.
In addition to the team’s success, Langley received some great individual seasons as well.
Brett Dobray led the league with 68 goals, James Baker was third in points with 98, and James Rahe was the team’s top two-way player, finishing tenth in league scoring with 81 points.
The Thunder play at New Westminster’s Queen’s Park Arena this weekend for the provincial championships. They are up against Richmond, Coquitlam and New Westminster.
