The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds split a pair of games with the Valley West Hawks last week.

Scores were: Game 1 Valley West 2, Fraser Valley 3, Game 2 Valley West 2, Fraser Valley 0.

Both of these games were closely contested and very exciting to watch with both of the teams claiming victory in one of these back to back games.

Fraser Valley nabbed the win in Game 1 played at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday morning, thanks to goals from Logan Hunter, Jake Mulder and Jonathan Stein. The T-Birds were outshot by a 3 to 1 margin, but thanks go to T-Birds goalie Paul Tucek who stood on his head in goal to secure the win in this “get in, shut up and hang on” game.

In Game 2 played at the Abbotsford Rec Centre on Sunday morning, the T-Birds couldn’t tickle the twine and played to an again very exciting game dropping the decision to the Hawks, to whom finally got one past T-Birds goalie Paul Tucek late in the third period before the Hawks finished with an empty net goal.

The T-Birds travelled to Prince George for a pair of games this past weekend with the BCMML Cougars before returning home to host the South Island Royals at the Abbotsford Rec. Centre on November 14 at 4 p.m. and again on the 15th at 10 a.m.
