The BC Eagles Sledge Hockey Team won Gold at the Western Canadian Championships on March 1st- 4th, 2012 in Calgary, Alberta. The BC Eagles battled the Edmonton Impact, who picked up a few players from Manitoba on the National Development Team. On the first game of the tournament, the BC Eagles won 4-3 with James Gemmell as the main player of the game. BC lost the 2nd game 3-1 with Joe Skillen as the player of the game, but the 3rd and final game, BC won 2-1 with Joe Skillen as the winning the player of the game. The players played outstandingly against a very tough and competitive team, congratulations! The BC Eagles focused on fundamentals in all the practices and it has once again, paid off.
