Gold for Langley in Canada's national summer sport

The Langley Thunder Bantam A1’s celebrated their country’s birthday by marching to gold in the top division of one of Canada’s biggest lacrosse gatherings, the Calgary Canada Day Weekend Tournament.

After going undefeated against two teams from the host city as well as California and Red Deer, the Thunder went head to head against BC rivals, the Coquitlam Adanacs, who had yet to lose a game in pre-season, regular season or tournament play in 2012.

With a fierce commitment to defense and a strong transitional offensive attack, the Thunder turned the tables on the Coquitlam powerhouse, handing them their first defeat (7-4) to take top honors when it mattered most.
