Another tournament, another title for the Langley B2 Thunder lacrosse team.

For the second time in as many weekends, the local bantam lacrosse team was golden.

But while last time they had to travel to the Okanagan to collect their gold, this time, the Thunder did so in the friendly confines of within Langley at the Dennis Hickey Memorial Lacrosse Tournament.

The tournament was held at the Langley Events Centre, the George Preston Recreation and the Aldergrove Arena.

Langley defeated Port Coquitlam 10-3 in the gold medal game on Sunday, with Aydan Johnson and Tyler Starinieri both registering hat tricks in the final.

Starinieri earned game MVP honours.

The win capped off a perfect 5-0 weekend for the Thunder as they went 3-0 in the round robin and then defeated the Langley B1 Thunder team in the 5-4 in overtime in the semifinals with captain Kyle Olsen scoring the decisive goal.

The Langley B1  team finished fourth while the Bantam A1 squad captured the bronze medal in their division.

A controversial call that could have easily sunk the Langley Thunder bantam B2 lacrosse team in the championship final on Sunday.

But instead, it galvanized the Thunder players, who dominated the third period, scoring a 10-6 victory in the gold-medal game over the host North Okanagan bantam B1 team in the finals of the North Okanagan Rock the House Tournament.

Goaltender Jaxon Hendrickson was ejected early in the second period after his gloves were deemed to be illegal.

Ryan Taylor, who had never played goal before, stepped in admirably and backstopped the team to victory. He earned game MVP honours for the Thunder.

The team went a perfect 3-0 in the round robin - beating a pair of North Okanagan squads and another team from Kelowna - to advance straight to the finals.

Jordan Daniel, Trevayne Hunter and Raachel Beaulieu earned game MVP awards.

Saturday, May 11th the Championship title game on CBS Sports Network gets underway at 4pm.

EVERETT, Wash.   With Saturday’s West Division Final win over the Calgary Roughnecks, the Washington Stealth have announced that it will host the 2013 NLL Championship Game Presented by Reebok in Langley, British Columbia, located just 10 minutes north of the U.S.-Canada border.

The Stealth defeated the Roughnecks 14-13 to earn its third trip to the NLL Championship Game in the last four years.

The decision to play the "Saturday, May 11":https://webmail.vsb.bc.ca/owa/UrlBlockedError.aspx NLL title game in Langley was made after Comcast Arena, the team’s home in Everett, Wash., was booked throughout the weekend of "May 10-12.":https://webmail.vsb.bc.ca/owa/UrlBlockedError.aspx

After an exhaustive search was unable to find open weekend dates at other arenas in the Puget Sound area, and faced with the possibility of deferring the game to the winner of the East Division Final, the Stealth elected to keep the NLL Championship Game in the Pacific Northwest.

“Keeping the Champion’s Cup game in our region is the best outcome for our fans and will maintain our home-floor advantage,” said David Takata, president of the Washington Stealth.  “Obviously the ideal outcome would be to host the game on our home floor, but due to the window available for the game, we had to look at other options in the region.”

Game time for the 2013 NLL Championship Game Presented by Reebok at the 5,500 seat Langley Events Centre is "4 p.m. PDT on Saturday, May 11.":https://webmail.vsb.bc.ca/owa/UrlBlockedError.aspx  The game is broadcast live on the CBS Sports Network.

“The Langley Events Centre is one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier facilities and has hosted NLL exhibition games during the past two seasons,” Takata said.  “Getting the fans this close to the action for a championship game will be special.  The mid-afternoon game time will help our fans make the trip to Langley and back in one exciting day.”

Tickets for the 2013 NLL Championship Game Presented by Reekbok will be available tomorrow (Sunday) at 10:00AM through Ticketmaster<http://www.ticketmaster.ca/event/11004AA39CEB672B;,  "www.StealthLAX.com":http://www.stealthlax.com/&lt;http://www.StealthLAX.com/;, by calling "1-855-985-5000":tel:1-855-985-5000"Call: 1-855-985-5000":http://langleylacrosse.com/news.php?news_id=744771&lang=#  and at the Langley Events Centre box office (open Sunday from 10:00AM to 5:00PM)
