PW A3 brings home Provincial Silver
|After losing the Tier 3 division banner to Mission's top team earlier this month, yet still earning a spot in provincials, the Langley Peewee A3 Eagles finished off their stellar season winning silver at the BC Peewee Minor Hockey Provincials hosted by Dawson Creek from March 19 - 23, 2017. The Eagles went undefeated in round robin, facing South Okanagan, Terrace and Cranbrook. In semi-finals, the Eagles had a rematch against their rivals, Mission A1. The Eagles were down 4-2 in the second period, but with great determination, they tied the score in the third. With just over a minute left, the Eagles scored, winning the game 5-4, and advanced to the gold medal round, where they faced the powerhouse Dawson Creek A1 Canucks, who had yet to be challenged as they demolished their competition. Although they put in their best effort, the Eagles were defeated 9-3.
"I'm just glad that we were able to keep Dawson Creek to single digits!" laughs Head Coach, Gary Bowsher. "We were the only team that did and were able to score more than one goal on them. Considering the calibre of the Dawson Creek team, our boys played a phenomenal game. They fought hard and they never gave up. Our team may have brought home silver, but, to me, they won gold!"
We are cheering loudly for our three teams that are provincial bound!
Good luck to Peewee A3 in Dawson Creek. Follow their progress here.
Good luck to Peewee A4 in Fernie. Follow their progress here.
Good Luck to Juvenile A1 in Richmond. Juvenile provincials start a bit later (March 23) than other divisions, we will post the link to follow their progress in a few days.
