In a gold medal rematch from two months ago, this time it was the Kamloops visitors getting their revenge on the Langley A3 Eagles.

The North Kamloops Lions defeated Langley 4-3 in the championship final of the Langley Minor Hockey Association Shatter the Glass tournament over the weekend at Twin Rinks.

It was the Eagles lone loss in five games at the tournament.

And the two teams had also met in the finals of the Campbell Memorial Bantam B rep hockey tournament back in November, with Langley taking gold in that tournament.

At that event, the Eagles’ Corbin Genge was also awarded $300 which is to be used towards his ice hockey fees for next season. Genge was chosen as the player who best exemplified sportsmanship, commitment and value to one’s team.

The Eagles team consists of: Angad Singh, Braden Warburton, Brayden Ehrhardt, Casey Whintors, Clayton Schroeder, Corbin Genge, Corwin Glendenning, Daiven Saggin, Jared Klassen, Jayden Genberg, Josh Green, Leland Konrath, Luke Adams, Nick Grant, Quintan Morley, Thomas Colter, and Trevor Sever.

The coaches are Paul Whintors, Paul Warburton and Kevin Green.
