After a pair of losses to the league-leading Vancouver Giants, the Valley West Hawks find themselves in a three-way battle for a playoff position in the B.C. Hockey Major Midget League. The Hawks failed to pick up a point last weekend, dropping a pair of 3-1 decisions to the Giants. Valley West, in sixth place, is now just three points up on the North Island Silvertips and six ahead of the Fraser Valley Bruins in the race for the final playoff position. Both the Silvertips and Bruins have 10 games remaining, with just eight contests left on the Valley West schedule. Mitch Friesen of Surrey scored the lone goal early in the second period of Saturday’s home game at the Langley Events Centre, a tally which briefly tied the game. The Giants took the lead less than a minute later, and were up 3-1 after 40 minutes. The Giants were up 2-0 in the second period when Valley West netted their lone goal Sunday in Burnaby. Danton Heinen of Langley scored, with Surrey defenceman Jerret Smith and Lange drawing the assists. The Hawks play Fraser Valley in two very important games next weekend, facing off Saturday night in Abbotsford before a rematch Sunday at 3:15 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.
