Fraser Valley Thunderbirds face South Island Royals to end season

After splitting two with the Kootenay Ice last weekend, the major midget T-Birds hold third place.

The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds split a pair of home games versus the Kootenay Ice last weekend and will hit the road for the final weekend of the Major Midget Hockey League regular season.

The T-Birds beat the Ice 2-1 Saturday at the MSA Arena in Abbotsford, with Chilliwack’s Ethan Bowen helping set up a goal by Will Dow-Kenny (Abbotsford).

The Sunday rematch didn’t go so well.

Chilliwack defenceman Jackson Mainse picked up two points, one goal and one assist, for the Thunderbirds. But the final score was 6-2 for the Ice.

Fraser Valley skates into the final weekend of the season looking to hold on to third place in the 11 team league. Their record of 23-13-1-1 puts them three points up on the Okanagan Rockets as they head to Lake Cowichan for two road games versus the last place South Island Royals (5-30-3-0). The Rockets have a much tougher task to end the season, hosting a pair against the second place Cariboo Cougars (29-6-3-0).

In addition to Ethan Bowen and Mainse, the T-Bird roster includes forwards Jason Bowen and Zack Feaver and defenceman Travis Halladay.
