T-birds tie Giants twice

Fraser Valley plays Vancouver to a pair of back-to-back draws

The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds and the Vancouver Northwest Giants didn’t settle much after a pair of games last weekend.

The British Columbia Major Midget League hockey clubs tied 1-1 in North Vancouver on Saturday, and then drew again 5-5 in Abbotsford on Sunday.

Saturday’s game saw the Thunderbirds fall behind 1-0 after the first period, but then tie the game at 6:50 of the second period when Jamie Housch knotted the game.

Sunday’s game at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre featured a lot more offence, but a similar result. Fraser Valley got goals from Abbotsford’s Ryan Crosby-Jones, Brendan Black, Abbotsford’s Zac McKee, Abbotsford’s Kyle Davis, and Mackenzie Wight.

The pair of ties moves the Thunderbirds record to 10 wins, eight losses, and six ties in regular season action. Fraser Valley sits in sixth place in the 11-team BCMML.

Fraser Valley wraps up the calendar year with a home and home with the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs on Sunday and Monday. The Thunderbirds travel to Coquitlam for Sunday’s tilt, and then host the Chiefs at the ARC on Monday. Opening face-off is scheduled for 8:15 p.m.

The Thunderbirds are then on a holiday break until Jan. 9 and 10, when they visit Vancouver Island for a pair of games against the North Island Silvertips. The next home game for the Thunderbirds is on Jan. 30.
