Islanders win against Warriors

Neucel Islanders take North Island Commercial Hockey League victory over the Port Hardy Warriors.

PORT HARDY—Back-to-back goals 12 seconds apart snapped a 1-1 tie and gave the visiting Neucel Islanders the lead for good as they went on to a 4-2 North Island Commercial Hockey League victory over the Port Hardy Warriors Friday.

Rory Bondue netted the game-winner for the Port Alice club after the teams went into intermission tied 1-1.

After the goals in the opening three minutes of the second period staked the Islanders to a 3-1 lead, Shelby Cockell drew the Warriors within one on a goal with 6:26 remaining. But Islanders goalie Adam Hall kept the hosts off the board the rest of the way, and Jason Hodson added an insurance goal for Neucel with 23 seconds remaining.

Hodson finished with a goal and an assist for the winners. Brett Demoe had a goal and Darryl Cockell and Corey Swain contributed assists for the Warriors.
