Langley players contribute to Thunderbirds’ victory

Fraser Valley, which includes Langley and Aldergrove players, salvaged a weekend series against Cariboo in BC Major Midget hockey action.

The BC Major Midget League’s Fraser Valley Thunderbirds had mixed results last weekend in Prince George, losing 4-1 to the host Carboo Cougars before bouncing back to edge the Cougars 5-4 in the game two between the two teams.

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.

Game one of the weekend series was played on Saturday evening with the Tbirds appearing to have left their legs on the team bus, dropping a 4-1 decision with Kyle Davis scoring the lone goal for Fraser Valley in the loss.

The Cougars significantly outshot the Tbirds giving Fraser Valley goalie Paul Tucek all he could handle between the pipes.

Game two saw the confident Cougars go up against a much different Tbirds team, a team that played with emotion and drive which turned out to be the deciding factors in the visitors’ 5-4 win.

Kyle Davis, Anderson, Mackenzie Wight, Dyck, and Justin Plett scored for the Tbirds.

Naylor tended goal and he also had to contend with a barrage of shots from Cougars who were focused on a series sweep.

The Tbirds are home next weekend to the South Island Royals on Saturday, Nov 14 at 4 p.m. at the Abbotsford Rec Centre, and again on Sunday, Nov 15 at 10 a.m. at the Abbotsford Ford Center (where the AHL’s Heat once played before relocating).
