The U18 Falcons Thunder bring home hardware once again! After losing in a shoot out to the Kelowna Lakers in a tough semi-final match, the Falcons Thunder were able to gut out a 2-1 victory over West Van to win bronze in the Club Championships Tier 2. The girls executed the brilliant tactics of coach David Littlewood to secure a medal. Special thanks to our guest players, Bridget and Olivia, for getting us through three games on Saturday.
