Given a second chance against Kamloops, the Langley Eagles won when it mattered most: the gold medal game.
The two A1 atom rep hockey teams were playing in the championship finals of the Abbotsford Minor Atom Rep Tournament just before Christmas.
And in the team’s first game during round-robin play, they played to a 3-3 draw.
But the gold medal game was all Langley as they soared to an 8-3 victory.
The tie was the lone blemish on Langley’s record as they went 4-0-1 at the tournament.
Other results included winning 7-2 over Chilliwack and 3-1 against Nanaimo in round robin play and then beating Chilliwack 6-0 in the semifinals.
