Fraser Valley Thunderbirds take two from Greater Vancouver Canadians

The B.C. Hockey Major Midget Hockey League team sits in third place overall after 20 games

A big weekend from Chilliwack’s Ethan Bowen helped the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds to two wins in B.C. Major Midget League action.

Bowen’s crew faced the Greater Vancouver Canadians in a huge home-and-home.

Bowen scored twice in Saturday’s opener, a 5-4 win at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena.

Defenceman Travis Halladay (Chilliwack) scored the first Fraser Valley goal and picked up a second assist on of Bowen’s snipes.

Defenceman Jackson Mainse (Chilliwack) added a pair of assists.

Gage Goncalves (Mission) and Will Dow-Kenny (Abbotsford) also scored for the T-Birds, with Hope native Dawson Pelletier earning the win in net.

Bowen picked up two assists in the Sunday rematch at the Richmond Oval, won 5-4 by Fraser Valley.

Bowen set up the first two Thunderbird goals, scored by Harkarit Gill (Surrey) and Matthew Konrad (Abbotsford).

The T-Birds improved their record to 14-6-1-1, good for third place in the 11 team league.

They trail the second place Cariboo Cougars by five points and the first place Valley West Hawks by seven.

Fraser Valley has another crucial home-and-home this weekend, facing the fourth place Vancouver NW Giants (12-7-0-1).

Game one, the last home game the team will play before Christmas, is Saturday at 6 p.m. at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena.

The Thunderbirds are using the occasion to do a food drive, with food or cash donations being accepted for admission.
