The Langley midget A3 Eagles had no problems filling the net as they soared to the gold medal at a hockey tournament at the Mission Leisure Centre.

The Eagles went 4-0-1, averaging more than six goals a game, as they cruised to top spot at the post-Christmas tournament.

In the championship final, Langley crushed the Ridge Meadows A3 Rustlers by a 10-3 score.

In that game, Ayden MacDonald continued his torrid goal-scoring pace, notching four goals.

He finished the tournament with eight goals and nine assists in the five games.

Justin Butler also netted a hat trick in the championship final and earned player of the game honours.

In the team’s opening game of the preliminary round, they defeated the Mission A2 Stars 5-2, behind a two-goal performance from Jordan Lazar, who earned player of the game honours.

That was followed by a 5-5 tie against the North Shore Winter Club A2 Winterhawks, with Brandon Grasby and Philip Gauthier each netting a pair of goals. Nathan Wolfe was named player of the game in that contest.

Langley then topped Ridge Meadows A3 6-2 as MacDonald scored twice while Cam Alder was player of the game.

And the Eagles finished atop the pool — and earned a spot straight in the finals — after downing the Seattle Sno-King A1 6-1 behind some stellar goaltending from player of the game Mark Balcita.

Grasby and Lazar scored twice apiece in the game.
