Midgets battle Canadians to draw

Great Vancouver Canadians, Fraser Valley Bruins, Major Midget Hockey League, BC Hockey

The Fraser Valley Bruins of the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League fought a talented Greater Vancouver Canadians squad to a 2-2 draw last Sunday in Ladner.

The Bruins came into the game with four wins in 13 outings, facing a Canadians squad with a record of 8-4-3.

After a scoreless first period, the Bruins got on the board in the second period on a goal by Mike Nolan.

The Aldergrove native was set up by Chilliwack’s Bradley King and Abbotsford’s Austin Edwards.

The Canadians replied with two second period tallies of their own, scored by Arvin Atwal and Tyler Sandhu.

Entering the third period down a goal, the Bruins got a break when the Canadians took a bench minor for too many men.

On the ensuing power play, Mitch Skapski (Abbotsford) struck for the Bruins, with assists to Edwards and Nolan.

On Saturday night the Bruins faced the same Canadians squad, dropping a 4-1 decision at MSA Arena in Abbotsford.

Skapski scored the lone Fraser Valley marker in the first period, with assists to Chilliwack’s Rylan Bechtel and Abbotsford’s Matt Revel.

Alec Dawydiak and Cody Gordon had two goals apiece for Greater Vancouver.

The Bruins come into this weekend ninth in the 11 team circuit with a record of 4-8-2. They’re on the road Saturday and Sunday, visiting the Castlegar and District Community Complex for back to back games against the Kootenay Ice (1-12-1).
