Fraser Valley Thunderbirds take silver at Acura Winter Classic

Team of mostly Langley players leads BC Hockey League standings

The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds Minor Midgets took silver in the first annual Acura Winter Classic at Coquitlam Planet Ice.

The Thunderbirds defeated the Valley West Giants in the semi finals to go on to the final tournament game against the heavily favored home team, the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs Sunday night last Jan. 6.

After defeating the Giants earlier in the morning, the Thunderbirds just did not have enough gas in the tank or much puck luck and lost to the Chiefs 2-1.

The Minor Midget Thunderbirds start 2019 in first place in the BC Hockey League.

The team of mostly Langley players heads to North Vancouver to play the Vancouver North West Hawks January 18, 19, and 20th.

The Thunderbirds next series of home games will be January 25, 26, and 27th against the Cariboo Cougars.
