T-Birds earn three of four points

Fraser Valley now tied for fifth place in BCMML after weekend

The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds got back on the winning track against the Greater Vancouver Canadians last weekend.

The Thunderbirds picked up three of a possible four points in a home and home two game set with the Canadians on Saturday and Sunday.

Fraser Valley hosted the Canadians in Abbotsford on Saturday and exploded in the third period for three goals to post a 5-2 win. Abbotsford products Andrew Sorensen and Kyle Davis drew assists on Fraser Valley’s fourth goal in the win.

The teams met again on Sunday in Richmond and played to a 2-2 tie. The Canadians scored a late goal to even the game up.

Fraser Valley moves into a three-way tie for fifth place in the 11 team British Columbia Major Midget League after the weekend’s results.

The Thundebirds have a bye week this weekend, before facing the Valley West Hawks on Oct. 31 at 11 a.m. at the Langley Event Centre and again on Nov. 1 at 9:45 a.m. at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre.
