The Northwest Giants had a chance to pad their stats following two big wins over the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds last weekend.
The Giants, the only still unbeaten team in the B.C. major midget hockey league, dumped the T-Birds 9-2 in Chilliwack on Oct. 27, before returning home for a 10-1 triumph on the Sunday.
Eric Margo led the Giants with two goals and two assists in Sunday's win, lifting him into a tie with Jarid Lukosevicius and Jackson Cressey for the team lead with seven goals apiece.
Colton Kerfoot also potted a pair of goals, while Jansen Harkins chipped in with four assists. Quinn Thompson also assisted on three counters.
All but two players on the 18-man Giants' bench picked up at least a point in the victory.
The win improved the Giants' record to 9-0-1, just one point behind the first-place Cariboo Cougars at 10-2-0.
On the Saturday, Burnaby defence-man Connor Pasco picked up the first of his two goals this season against the Thunderbirds.
Cole Todd had a pair of late goals for the winners, while Lukosevicius, Margo and Brandon Del Grosso of New Westminster all had a goal and one helper in the one-sided win.
Lukosevicius and Harkins lead the Giants in scoring with 18 points apiece, tied for fifth overall in the league.
This weekend, the Giants will play a weekend series against the Northeast Chiefs, beginning with a Saturday night matchup at Planet Ice in Coquitlam. The return game is at the Burnaby Winter Club on Sunday morning, beginning at 9: 30 a.m.
