A wild weekend of B.C. Major Midget Hockey League action saw the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds take three of four points from the North Island SIlvertips.

Each of the league’s 11 teams gathered at the Richmond Oval for the MMHL’s version of the BCHL Showcase.

Chilliwack’s Jackson Mainse and Zack Feaver picked up assists on the third Thunderbird goal, scored by Mission’s Gage Goncalves.

Mainse, a five-foot-eight and 150 pound blueliner, picked up the primary assist on the fourth Fraser Valley goal, sniped by Langley’s Carter Anderson.

Sunday’s match saw the Thunderbirds bomb the Silvertips by a 12-1 count.

Chilliwack’s Jason Bowen collected his first goal of the season in the opening frame, Feaver assisted on an Anderson goal in period two and Mainse had another two-assist night as the T-Birds improved their overall record to 2-1-1.

Fraser Valley clashes with the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs (0-2-1-1) in a home-and-home this weekend.

The Thunderbirds host the Chiefs Saturday, with a 3:45 p.m. puck drop at Centre Ice in Abbotsford.
