Langley peewee Ice Hawks crush at tourney

The Langley Ice Hawks headed into the finals of the Cloverdale Ice Crusher tournament against an undefeated rival.

But the peewee C6 squad returned home having taken top spot in their division and the gold.

“The boys came out of round robin play seeded first and took on a tough Cloverdale C1 team in the semis, defeating them 5-3 in a nail-biter,” said coach Michael Hendricks. “Goalie Mitch Boucher was very strong in net, making some huge saves to preserve the win.”

The Ice Hawks took on undefeated Cloverdale C3 in the finals, winning 3-1 and dominating play. Their coaches said they kept the pressure on throughout the game.

“The boys played a great team game and controlled the play despite the close score,” said coach Mike Newby. “The team was outstanding defensively, and David Hendricks scored the game winning goal on some nifty work by Logan Heales and Brandon Toby.”

The team came third in the Princeton tourney at the beginning of December.

Overall the Ice Hawks are 12-9-2 in all competitions, including Fraser Valley West league play, LMHA inter-league play, tournaments and exhibition games.

“It’s a great group of boys who are working hard and having a lot of fun,” he added.
