The Langley bantam C2 Lumberjacks chopped down the competition to take the crown at Aldergrove’s bantam C ice hockey tournament over the weekend.

And the Lumberjacks used a stingy defence to do so, surrendering just a pair of goals total over the course of the five games, all of which were victories.

By comparison, the team’s offence was firing on all cylinders, pumping home 33 goals.

In the finals, Langley defeated Whatcom County 5-1 for the gold medals in a battle of two unbeaten teams.

In the semifinals, the Lumberjacks beat the Surrey Flyers 4-1.

The Flyers goal came in the third period and ended Langley’s 11-period shutout streak.

In the round robin, the Lumberjacks beat the Flyers 8-0 and knocked off a pair of Aldergrove teams, the Bruins 8-0 and the Hitmen 7-0.
