A day after getting blown out by the struggling North Island Silvertips, the Valley West Hawks dominated the host team in a rematch, winning their B.C. Hockey Major Midget League game 6-1 in Nanaimo.

The Hawks complete the first half of their 40-game schedule with an 11-9-0 (won-lost-tied) record, and are in fifth place in the 11-team league. Six teams will qualify for the playoffs.

Valley West fell behind early Saturday and were blanked 6-0 by a Silvertips team which has won just seven games. North Island led 3-0 and 6-0 at the period breaks.

In the second game Sunday, the Hawks raced to a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes, and were up 5-0 by the second intermission. Forward Mitchell Friesen and defenceman Jerret Smith, both of Surrey, each scored once and added an assist, as did Langley skaters Nick Coltura, Kyle Raymond and Danton Heinen.

Defenceman Jordan Klimek also had a two-point game with a pair of helpers, with Daniel Lange notching the sixth Hawks goal.

At the midway point of the season, Langley’s Heinen leads the team with 10 goals, while Friesen is tops in assists with 11 and points with 25.

The Hawks host the 7-10-3 Thompson Blazers next weekend, with the first game Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Langley Sportsplex, and the second set for 10:30 a.m. at the Surrey Sports and Leisure Complex.
