Little skaters put on big tournament

PORT McNEILL — Local association hosts eight-team novice tourney for teams from across Vancouver Island

On the Valentine Weekend of Feb 13-15 Port McNeill hosted a Novice hockey tournament at the Chilton Regional Arena.

There were eight teams who participated, one from Lake Cowichan.

The energy, enthusiasm and sportsmanship showed by these young players and their families was impressive to see. All the kids played extremely hard and showed amazing heart.

Competition was fierce and the intense action was non-stop for all three periods. Comox brought three teams – the Bulldogs, White Lightning and the Sharks – and were a force to be reckoned with.

The North Island teams put on a good effort with the Port Alice Cougars winning two of their four games.

There was a great showing by the Port McNeill Panthers and the Port Hardy Hawks teams as well.

A highlight for some of the young players was winning their first ever MVP of the game award.

There were no winners or losers here as every player left everything they had on the ice.
