The Langley bantam C3 Eagles have won gold for a second time this season after taking top spot at a tournament in Chilliwack.

Eagles soar to another gold

Langley bantam C3 hockey team wins second tournament title of the season

The Langley bantam C3 Eagles were rewarded for their team efforts with a second gold medal of the season.

“I feel very fortunate to have such unselfish players (who) buy into the team concept of achieving success,” said Eagles coach Clark Kemp. “This team never gives up and seems to play their best against the top skilled teams.”

The Eagles were competing over the weekend at the Paul Brenner Memorial Bantam Tournament in Chilliwack.

And in Sunday’s championship final, Langley got two goals and an assist from Nicholas Cormack to defeat the Chilliwack C3 Seahawks 5-2 in a battle of unbeaten squads. Trevor Young scored the game-winner.

The team finished a perfect 6-0.

In the opener, they blasted the Chilliwack C2 Bruins 10-1. Josh Laird earned game MVP honours while Lex Rohweder scored twice and Brady Lumsden chipped in with a goal.

The second game saw goaltender Matthew Reeves make some great saves early to keep Langley in the game until they got their bearings and then Colton Kenney took over with four goals in a 6-2 win over the Chilliwack C5 Spartans. Carson Yee picked up game MVP honours.

Owen Kredba was game MVP in his team’s 10-5 win over Kamloops as the defenceman had a strong game keeping the larger Kamloops forwards at bay. Eric Nordal finished with three assists. The offence kept rolling in the next game, a 9-2 win over the Chilliwack C1 Knights with Greg Song tallying twice. Defenceman Owen Kemp was game MVP.

And in Langley’s final game to win their pool, Joseph Deley and Matt Bardell-Polley scored once each in a 7-2 win over the Aldergrove C1 Bruins. Game MVP was Josh Moreau.
