Major Midget team gets win, tie against North Island

Even while earning three of a possible four points on home ice, the Valley West Hawks fell one position in the BC Hockey Major Midget League standings.

The Hawks handled the North Island Silvertips 9-3 Saturday night, then played the same team to a 3-3 tie Sunday morning. Both games were at the Langley Events Centre.

But two wins in as many games buy the Vancouver Canadians broke a tie for fifth place with the Hawks, dropping Valley West to sixth place in the 13-team league for elite 15-17 players.

The Hawks scored three times in each period Saturday night, leading 30 and 6-3 at the period breaks.

Eric Callegari of Langley and Surrey’s Matt Bradley netted two goals each for Valley West, with Jakob Stukel of Cloverdale, Josh Pollock of Langley, and Surrey’s Cole Plotnikoff, Darien Craighead and Spencer Unger scoring once each. Stukel, Matthew Cox (White Rock), Parker Wotherspoon (Cloverdale), and Surrey’s Rhett Wilcox and Ian Bennett had two assists each.

Stukel tallied twice and Craighead scored once in Sunday’s contest.

Now at 8-7-3 (won-loss-tied) on the season, Valley West will play their next four games against two teams at the bottom of the standings. They are in Nelson next weekend to face the 2-15-1 Kootenay Ice, then will host the 1-17-0 Thompson Blazers the following week in the South Surrey Arena.
