A perfect weekend in the provincial capital has left the Valley West Hawks all alone in first place in the B..C. Hockey Major Midget League.

Valley West, a team of 15-17 year-olds from Surrey, Cloverdale, Semiahmoo and Langley minor hockey associations, edged the South Island Thunderbirds 3-2 Saturday night then doubled their rivals 6-3 Sunday morning.

Their 6-2-0 (won-lost-tied) record leaves the Hawks one point up on the 5-2-1 Cariboo Cougars, and three ahead of the Vancouver Canadians after four weeks of play.

The Thunderbirds were tied 1-1 with Valley West after 20 minutes of play Saturday night, and led 2-1 going into the third period. Langley defenceman Jordan Klimek tied the game less than two minutes into the final frame, then Josh Pollock of Langley netted with winner with less than six minutes to go.

Surrey forward Ram Brar scored the first Hawks goal.

Details from Sunday’s game were not available.

The Hawks play a home-and-home series with the Vancouver Chiefs next weekend, hosting their 2-3-1 rivals Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre, then travelling to Coquitlam for a rematch Sunday.
