Silver linings for Lightning

Two Langley girls hockey teams snag silver medals at annual Angels on Ice Tournament

A pair of Langley hockey clubs earned silver medals on home ice.

The teams were among those competing in various age groups at the annual Langley Girls Ice Hockey Association Angles on Ice Tournament, which was held Dec. 27 to 30 at Sportsplex.

Thirty-four teams, with players as young as five, from across the Lower Mainland, Whitehorse, Seattle and Vancouver Island hit the ice for the four days of action.

The Lightning squad came second in the atom C1 division, falling to the Abbotsford Ice in the championship final.

And another Langley team was runner-up in the peewee division, losing to the Tri-City Predators in the finals.

The other championship finals were:

Surrey Falcons defeating the South Delta Thunderstorm in atom C2; the Cowichan Valley Capitals beat the Richmond Ravens in the bantam final; and the Abbotsford Ice topped the Meadow Ridge Barracudas in the midget final.
