Tbirds lock up with Chiefs

Local major midget teams skated to a pair of ties.

A major midget hockey team with a strong local connection was all tied up last weekend.

In a home-and-home series, the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds and Vancouver North East Chiefs skated to a 5-5 deadlock in the opener in Coquitlam and then tied 3-3 in Abbotsford.

The teams played to a 5-5 tie in Game 1 despite Fraser Valley starting the second period with a 4-1 lead.

Scoring for the Tbirds were: Jonathan Stein, Zac McKee, Jake Mulder, Andrew Sorensen, and Jamie Housch. Penalties were a factor for both teams with special teams play dominating a good part of the remainder of the game. Paul Tucek was between the pipes for the Tbirds and was a factor in Fraser Valley salvaging the point.

In game two at the Abbotsford Rec Center Sunday morning, the teams tied 3-3.

Mackenzie Wight with a pair and Jonathan Rees scored for Fraser Valley while Jordan Naylor manned the Fraser Valley net.

Fraser Valley is back in action Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Abbotsford Recreation Center, taking on the Vancouver North West Giants.

The Thunderbirds include Langley forwards Kaelen Anderson, Logan Hunter, Jonathan Rees, and Jonathan Stein, Aldergrove forward Baxter Anderson, Langley defencemen Matthew Dyck and Liam Visram, and Aldergrove goaltender Jordan Naylor.
