T-birds beat Chiefs to end 2015

Fraser Valley ends off calendar year with win over Vancouver

The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds ended the British Columbia Major Midget League calendar year on a high note on Monday, beating the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs 3-0 at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre.

The clubs played to a scoreless draw until the third period, when Abbotsford’s Andrew Sorensen scored the eventual game-winning goal. Abbotsford products Ryan Crosby-Jones and Justin Plett drew assists on the opening goal.

About 30 seconds later, Jonathan Stein made it 2-0, and Abbotsford’s Justin Hargrave scored with 30 seconds left to make it a 3-0 game.

Plett and Sorensen picked up the helpers on the third goal, to give both players two-point nights. Goalie Jordan Naylor picked up the shutout victory.

The win vaults the Thunderbirds into sixth place in the 11-team BCMML, with a record of 11 wins, nine losses and six ties.

The game marks the end of the calendar year for the Thunderbirds, and they return to action on Jan. 9 against the North Island Silvertips in Parksville.

Fraser Valley next plays in Abbotsford on Jan. 30, when they welcome the Valley West Hawks to the ARC.
