Peewee Eagles soar to gold medal
The Langley A4 Eagles went a perfect 5-0 over the Thanksgiving weekend to capture the gold medal at the Abbotsford Peewee Icebreaker hockey tournament.
Michael-James Roman scored twice in the gold medal game as the Eagles held on in a seesaw battle to edge Seattle AA.
“It was encouraging to see the team working so well together, especially this early in the season,” said Langley coach Dan Renaud.
“Whether we were ahead or behind, the boys never stopped working.”
The Eagles opened the tournament with a 5-2 win over the Comox Valley A2 team. Colton Kenney tallied two goals and an assist in the victory.
In game two, Kale Kasdorf notched a hat trick and an assist in a 7-1 win over the Prince George Cougars.
The final round robin game saw Roman and Yonni Silberman score once each in a tight 2-1 win over the North Shore Winter Club A4 Winterhawks.
The semifinals saw the Eagles face another Langley Minor Hockey Association squad, the A5 Eagles.
Cole Svendson scored both the tying goal and the go-ahead marker in a come-from-behind 5-3 victory to advance the team to the finals.
Svendson was a model of consistency over the course of the tournament, registering at least one point in all five games.
