Valley West sweeps two games in Major Midget league play

The scoring stats for Valley West Hawks snipers grew a little fatter last weekend, as the BC Hockey Major Midget League team scored 17 times in two games against the last-place Thompson Blazers.

The Hawks thumped their Kamloops-based opponents 9-3 and 8-0 in two games last weekend in Langley. The team is comprised of elite 15-17 year-olds from the Surrey, Cloverdale, Semiahmoo and a Langley minor hockey associations.

The victories allowed Valley West to clinch home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs, as they improved their record (won-loss-tied) to 23-11-2.

The Hawks scored five times in the first period of Saturday’s game at the Langley Sportsplex, taking period leads of 5-0 and 7-1. Mitch Newsome of Surrey had a huge game, scoring five times. Davis Koch of White Rock also had a five-point game, netting one goal and assisting on four others.

Matt Bradley of Surrey tallied twice and White Rock defenceman Matt Barberis added a single. Langley’s Eric Callegari collected three helpers.

Sunday at the Langley Events Centre, Bradley, Callegari and Trevor Ayre of Surrey each notched two goals. Newsome with a goal and three assists and Luke Gingras of Langley with one goal and two helpers completed the scoring.

The Hawks will play a home-and-home series with the Chiefs next weekend, needing one win to clinch third place. The two teams face-off Saturday in Coquitlam at 4:15 p.m., and again Sunday at noon at the Langley Sportsplex.
