A win, tie against Ice

Midpack placing midway through the season for Valley West Hawks

The Valley West Hawks have completed the first half of their schedule in the middle of the pack of the BC Hockey Major Midget League.

The Hawks are in sixth place in the 11-team league for elite 15-17 year-old players, with a 9-7-4 (won-lost-tied) record after 20 games, having played twice against each opponent.

The first half concluded last weekend in Nelson, where Valley West earned three of a possible four points against the struggling Kootenay Ice, a team with just two wins this season.

Saturday’s game was a one-sided victory for the Hawks, who led 2-1 and 4-2 at the period breaks on their way to an 8-3 win.

Darien Craighead netted three goals and assisted on another to pace the Hawks offense. Jakob Stukel and Josh Pollock netted two goals each, with Darius Davidson adding a single.

Pollock, Matthew Cox and Matt Bradley collected two assists each.

A goal with five seconds to play lifted the Hawks into a 3-3 tie Sunday. Bradley scored the tying goal, with Pollock and Eric Callegari notching goals in the first period.

Spencer Unger was the top playmaker, earning a pair of assists.

The Hawks will host the Thompson Blazers, winners of just one of 20 games this season, next weekend in Surrey. The first game is 6:30 p.m. Saturday night in the South Surrey Arena, with game two Sunday at 9 a.m. at the Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex.
