Representing Team Canada, Chatham’s Hokey Langan and Laura Gillett are bringing home gold after winning the World Ball Hockey Championship.

The tournament, which started May 26 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, concluded this weekend with the Canadian women defeating the USA 7-0 in the gold medal game.

It was retribution for a loss the day before, where the USA beat Canada 6-2. The Canadians then rebounded to beat Slovakia 8-0 in the semi-finals, setting up a rematch for gold.

Langan and Gillett have played together at multiple levels, including ball hockey with the Chatham Coyotes, and ice hockey with the Chatham-Kent Secondary School Golden Hawks.

A third player on Canada’s team Gwynne Attenborough, is also an alumni of the Chatham Coyotes ball hockey program.
