Vipers strike for gold in Seattle
The Langley Vipers capped off their season in style, bringing home the gold medal from a weekend tournament in Seattle hosted by the Sno-King Amateur Hockey Association.
The H4 LY2 initiation hockey team went 3-0 in the round robin portion of the tournament, defeating a trio of Washington state teams.
That put them into the semifinals against Ridge Meadows, and after a hard-fought victory, Langley faced the Sno-King Green team in the finals.
Playing their fifth game in two days, the players were exhausted, but managed to hold on for a 5-4 victory, including withstanding a Sno-King attack that did not relent until the final buzzer sounded.
