The 14th annual Harvey Walkus Memorial Floor Hockey Tournament had a positive turnout

The 14th annual Harvey Walkus Memorial Floor Hockey tournament was held at the Wakas Hall on the Tsulquate Reserve and at the Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena at the Port Hardy Recreation Centre this weekend.

According to organizer Darcy Walkus, eight ladies and 11 men’s teams participated in this year’s event. First place in the men’s went to the Port Hardy Wolf Pack who beat out the Quatsino Young Bucks for the title. Third place went to the Ladysmith Warriors. The team from Quatsino won the Ladies’ event edging out the Port Hardy Storm. Chix with Sticks were third, Walkus said.

“It was a lot of fun. Everyone played with a lot of heart,” he said, adding the event proved to be challenging for those who are used to playing in the hall. “There’s a lot more running at the arena,” he said. Cash and trophies were awarded as prizes in the drug and alcohol-free event. The event will take place again at the end of April next year.
