Gazette staff

PORT McNEILL — Bob Wells was flawless in goal and defenseman Reed Allen scored two goals Sunday as the Port McNeill Ice Devils rolled to a 6-0 win over the visiting Port Hardy Bulls in Commercial Hockey League action at Chilton Regional Arena.

Jarvis Walsh added a goal and four assists as the Devils posted their second straight one-sided win over the Bulls and moved into sole possession of second place in the league ahead of their longtime rivals.

The game was the only one played in the league last weekend, as the Port Hardy Minor Hockey midget tournament pre-empted the scheduled game between the Neucel Islanders of Port Alice and the Warriors in Port Hardy.

Glenn Moore, John Murgatroyd, Ryan Clark and Bill Rushton also found the net for the Devils in Sunday’s win. Clark added three assists and Murgatroyd, John Prachnau, Ryan Rushton and Kurtis Grant chipped in singles.

League members will make up lost ground this weekend. Games will be played in both Port Alice and Port Hardy Friday evening, and the Devils will face the Warriors in a rare Saturday game at 4:45 p.m. in Port Hardy.

In addition, the Islanders will face off with the Port Alice Oldtimers in the annual Rod Watson Memorial Game in Port Alice Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
