The Langley Eagles atom A4 hockey team was as good as gold at a tournament in Salmon Arm recently.
â€œThis group of 17 kids â€“ all ages nine and 10 â€“ played with so much effort and heart, they defined what being a team meant,â€ Eagles manager Lisa Watson said.
The Eagles won all five of their games, but it was not always easy. They defeated Penticton 5-1, 100 Mile House 9-3, Quesnel 7-5, South Okanagan 6-3, and finally North Okanagan 6-1.
Coached by Wes Guiel, Tim Mackie and Carlo Marini, the Eagles include Ally Simmons, Austen Grummettt, Brandon Guiel, Brandon Watson, Brayden Candy, Cameron Furnell, Chase Mackie, Ethan Gunson, Hunter Curtis, Justin Wright, Liam Patouillet, Matteo Marini, Nicholas Peebles, Riley Wright, Ryeley Bias, Troy Edwards, and Zach Fausto.
