Given a second crack at the team which had beaten them earlier, the Langley Titans took advantage of the opportunity, winning when it mattered the most.
The peewee LY6 team edged Chilliwack 3-2 in the gold-medal game at the North Okanagan Knights peewee recreation tournament in Armstrong earlier this month (Jan. 19 to 21).
Chilliwack had defeated the Titans 6-4 earlier in the tournament, but that would be Langley’s only blemish over the five games they played in the three-day span.
The Titans opened the tournament with a decisive 10-2 win over Kamloops on day one.
The second day saw them split a pair of games, losing 6-4 to Chilliwack before bouncing back with a 5-3 win over Semiahmoo.
With a 2-1 pool-play record, Langley advanced to Sunday’s semifinal round where they doubled up Kelowna 4-2, setting up a rematch with Chilliwack for the gold medal later on that same day.
