Langley, BC (July 6, 2017)– The Langley Thunder (2-9) needed a three-goal comeback on Wednesday night to defeat the Victoria Shamrocks (7-4-1), 6-5.
The Thunder found themselves down 5-3 in the third period, when James Rahe scored with less than four minutes to go in the final frame. Brandon Clelland added his second of the night 25 seconds later and James Rahe netted the game winner with just over one-minute remaining in the third.
Admission to the game was by donation with $1676 being raised towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation of British Columbia.
“It was good to put a full game together and I thought that the boys fought through some adversity and had to battle back and they came out on the winning end,” said Head Coach Darcy Rhodes. “The mood in the building was great, it is always nice to be apart of an organization and fanbase that takes up worthwhile causes like we did last night and what we are doing next week as well.”
Langley visits Victoria in Game 2 of their back-to-backs Friday night inside the Q Centre. Faceoff is at 7:30pm and the game can be seen on Play Full Screen.
The Thunder’s next home game will be Wednesday July 12, 2017 inside the Langley Events Centre. It is one of the most important nights of the year for Langley as they are hosting the Tessa Beauchamp night.
