Perfect after four games on the road, the Valley West Hawks find themselves in fourth place in the BC Hockey Major Midget League (MML) after three weeks of play.

The elite team of 15-17 year-olds from Surrey and Langley swept a two-game series in Victoria last weekend, defeating the South Island Royals 6-5 Saturday night and 5-2 Sunday morning.

With four wins and two losses, Valley West is tied with the North Island Silvertips for fourth place.

The Hawks trailed 1-0 and 4-2 at the period breaks Saturday, but potted four third-period goals for the win.

Jakob Stukel of Cloverdale netted his second of the game four minutes into the third period, and Spencer Unger tied the contest less than five minutes later. Rhett Wilcox of Surrey put the visitors in front, and after the Royals drew even with four minutes to go, Matt Bradley netted the winner.

Josh Pollock had the other Valley West goal, with Unger, Parker Wotherspoon and Matthew Cox recording two assists each.

The Hawks had little trouble putting away the South Island side Sunday morning, leading 1-0 after one period and 4-0 after two. Darien Craighead tallied twice, with Wilcox, Addison Bazian and Pollock scoring one each. Cole Bevan assisted on three goals. and Bazian collected two helpers.

The Hawks will host the Okanagan Rockets for two games this weekend, part of the MML Showcase Weekend at the Langley Events Centre. Games times are 5:15 p.m. Saturday, and 8 p.m. Sunday evening.
