After sitting atop the standings just two weeks ago, a four-game losing skid has dropped the Valley West Hawks to fifth place in the B.C. Hockey Major Midget League.

Valley West lost a pair of games to the defending champion Vancouver Giants last weekend.

The Hawks gave up a pair of first period goals Saturday night in Burnaby, and while playing the Giants even the rest of the way, came out on the short end of a 2-0 score.

Back in Langley Sunday night, the Hawks were playing catchup again, falling behind 2-0 by the midway point of the second period. Jorden Klimek of Langley got the Hawks to within a goal with a powerplay goal late in the second frame, with an assist from Surrey’s Ram Brar. The Giants clinched the win with an empty net goal with 39 seconds remaining.

Valley West has fallen to 6-6 (won-lost) on the season, five points behind the first place Cariboo Cougars.

The Hawks play a home-and-home series with the Fraser Valley Bruins this weekend, facing off at 5 p.m. Saturday at the Langley Sportsplex, with the rematch Sunday morning at 10 a.m. at the Prospera Centre in Chilliwack.
