Fraser Valley Thunderbirds take two from Greater Vancouver Canadians

The teams played a home and home in B.C. Major Midget Hockey League action.

The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds continue to hold top spot in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League after two weekend wins over the Greater Vancouver Canadians.

Chilliwack’s Zack Feaver scored one of the Fraser Valley goals Saturday in a 4-1 road win at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Defenceman Jackson Maine (Chilliwack) picked up an assist on a goal by Abbotsford’s Luca Venier. Zack Funk (Langley) and John Lee (Abbotsford) also scored.

Back home the next day, Funk scored all of the goals in a 3-1 win, with Feaver and Mainse picking up one assist apiece.

The T-Birds have a record of 24-6-1-1 and a two point lead on the Vancouver North East Chiefs (21-7-4-2) in the BCMMHL standings.

They have a home-and-home Sunday and Monday versus the sixth place Vancouver North West Hawks (16-14-1-1).


The minor midget Fraser Valley Thunderbirds have slipped to second in their league.

While they had last weekend off, the Okanagan Rockets went 1-1-1 in three games against the Vancouver North East Chiefs and now hold a one point lead in the standings.

The T-Birds (21-5-1-0) get back to action Saturday, Sunday and Monday with road games in Nanaimo versus the sixth place North Island Silvertips (13-10-3-1)
