October 13, 2014 – By Israel Fehr

The Vancouver Thunderbirds have won gold at the Surrey Atom A1 Thanksgiving tournament, beating Semiahmoo 5-2 in the final on Monday afternoon.

The T-Birds waxed Chilliwack 5-1 in the semifinal on Monday morning while Semiahmoo earned their spot in the final after a 4-3 double-OT win over Cloverdale.

NSWC, the tournament favourites, were knocked out by Chilliwack in the quarterfinals after losing 1-0 on Sunday. The Winterhawks had finished first in the round robin, going 3-0-0, outscoring opponents 17-5.

The Hawks downed the T-Birds 2-1 in the round robin but that was the only glitch on their run to the gold.
