The Langley Eagles atom hockey team won gold at a tournament in Vancouver.

Consecutive shutouts send Eagles to gold medal

'The best I have ever seen them play' says Langley atom coach

Back-to-back shutout victories helped the Langley Eagles atom A4 hockey team soar to the gold medal.

The Langley Minor Hockey Association team defeated the North Vancouver Storm 7-0 in the championship finals at the Vancouver Thunderbirds’ tournament over the Remembrance Day tournament.

Langley scored three times apiece in the first and second periods to coast to victory.

“The boys played phenomenally this weekend,” said Eagles coach Gary Bowsher.

“Their speed, teamwork and discipline were top notch (and) the gold medal game was the best that I have ever seen them play.”

The Eagles also shut-out their previous opponent, the Vancouver A4 Thunderbirds 4-0.

Langley had finished the round robin with a 2-0-1 record and tied Squamish for top spot in their pool. The Eagles were given the higher seed thanks to having accumulated fewer penalty minutes in the three games.
