Eagles win gold in Calgary

The Surrey-based B.C. Eagles won the Western Canada Sledge Hockey Championship in Calgary March 2-4, defeating the Edmonton Impact 2-1 in the tournament final.

The Eagles were in the Senior A division, and faced the Impact in a best-of-three series. The Eagles won the first game 4-3, then dropped the second 3-1.

Goaltender Joe Skillen of Abbotsford earned a pair of Player of the Game awards for B.C., with James Gemmell of Quesnel earning one.

Gemmell and Eagles teammate Scott Karrasch of Surrey are currently in Hamar, Norway to play for the Canadian nationals team at the World Championships.

After round robin play, Canada finished atop their group with three wins in as many games. They were to play the United States in a semifinal game
