Eagles knock off Knights to win gold

Langley Minor Hockey Association team takes top spot at atom tournament in Vernon

With the gold medal on the line and the score tied at one entering the third period, the Langley Eagles found another gear, scoring twice in one minute and then adding two more goals to win 5-2.

The rep atom hockey team was playing the North Okanagan Knights in the championship final on Oct. 27 in Vernon.

“The team fought hard, played well, and their efforts paid off,” said Langley coach Gary Bowsher.

“Considering that many of these kids have never played together, it is impressive to see how quickly they gelled in such a short period of time.

“Their teamwork and camaraderie led them to their victory (and) these boys earned their gold.”

The coach added that the team got contributions all throughout their line up.

The Eagles had gone 3-0-1 in the round robin with victories over Vernon, South Okanagan and Williams Lake.

They tied the Knights 4-4 in round robin play as North Okanagan was able to erase a late two-goal lead.
