Valley West drops pair in Major Midget Hockey action

Back-to-back losses have dropped the Valley West Hawks from their first-place perch in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League.

The Hawks dropped consecutive games for the first time, falling to 6-4-0.

The team is made up of midget hockey players from Langley, Cloverdale, White Rock and Surrey.

The team was on the short end of a 7-4 decision on Saturday at the Langley Events Centre and 2-1 on Sunday at Coquitlam’s Planet Ice. Both games were against the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs.

The first game was played at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday afternoon.

The Hawks tied the score at 3-3 early in the third, but the Chiefs responded with four goals in less than 10 minutes to take control.

Ryan Rensby (Langley) scored twice while Latrell Charleson (Surrey) and Sam Chatterly (White Rock) had one goal apiece.

Game two was played at Coquitlam’s Planet Ice and the Hawks trailed 2-0 after two periods.

Jordan Klimek (Langley) was the lone Hawk to score.

Up next for the Hawks is a road game on Oct. 29 at the Burnaby Winter Club against the Vancouver Northwest Giants (5-2-1).

The two teams then complete the home-and-home series on Oct. 30 at the Langley Events Centre.
