Langley Eagles soar above competition
A pair of local bantam hockey teams were anything but hospitable as the Langley Minor Hockey Association hosted a bantam A2/A3 rep hockey tournament at Twin Rinks last week.
Both the Langley A2 and A3 Eagles did not drop a single game and took gold in their respective divisions.
For the A2 squad, who played in the Golden Eagle Pool, it was a 5-3 win over the Kamloops T2 Predators in the gold medal game.
This came on the heels of a 4-3 win over the Mission A1 Stars in the semifinals.
In the team’s round robin games, Langley was 3-0-1, beating Kamloops 6-2, the Mission A1 Stars 5-1 and the Vancouver A2 Thunderbirds 7-3. They tied the Coquitlam A2 Chiefs 1-1.
The A3 Eagles filled the net en route to winning all six games.
During pool play, they outscored their foes 33-2 before facing a stiff test in the semifinals, a 4-2 win over the Burnaby Winter Club.
In the Bald Eagle Pool championship final, the Langley posted a 5-1 win over the Vancouver A3 Thunderbirds.
In pool play, the Eagles beat the Cloverdale A3 Colts 7-0, the Vancouver A3 Thunderbirds 8-1, the Nanaimo T3 Clippers 11-0 and the Burnaby Winter Club 7-1.
