Local peewees face off

Port McNeill and Port Hardy peewee hockey teams meet in tourney playoffs.

PORT McNEILL—Even with eight teams playing a series of games over three days, the Port McNeill and Port Hardy peewee hockey teams found themselves playing familiar opponents Sunday morning.

Each other.

Cody Walkus snapped a tie with back-to-back goals in the third period as Port Hardy snuck away with a 4-2 victory over their North Island rivals in the seventh-place game of the annual Port McNeill Minor Hockey peewee tournament at Chilton Regional Arena.

Reece Lloyd had just tied the game 2-2 when his long slap shot from the top of the circle rippled the back of the net for the Redneck Legends. But Walkus answered less than a minute later to restore Port Hardy’s lead for good.

The tourney was won by Oceanside, which downed Cowichan Valley in the championship final. Nanaimo topped Campbell River for third place and Port Alberni outdueled Gold River to claim fifth.
