Hawks blanked twice by Giants

Valley West drops two games to Major Midget league leaders

One week after scoring 23 goals on the last place team, the Valley West Hawks were blanked after playing 120 minutes against the top team in the BC Hockey Major Midget League (MML).

Valley West was swept by the Vancouver Giants last weekend, losing 3-0 Saturday afternoon at the Langley Events Centre and 1-0 Sunday morning at the Burnaby Winter Club.

A week earlier, the Hawks swept the Kootenay Ice by scores of 11-2 and 12-3.

The Hawks fell to 14-12-6 (won-lost-tied), and remain in fifth place in the 11-team MML. The  Vancouver Canadians won twice last weekend, and are now just three points behind Valley West with two games in hand.

After a scoreless first period Saturday, the Giants scored twice in the second period and added a third goal into an empty net in the last minute of the game.

The Giants scored their lone goal Sunday midway through the second period.

The Hawks will look to end the brief losing streak next weekend with two games against the 5-22-3 Fraser Valley Thunderbirds, a team in 10th place in the 11-team league. Game one is Saturday afternoon in Chilliwack, with a rematch Sunday at 3:15 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.
