PORT McNEILL-Local team wraps up home tournament with shutout win; Alberni takes title

The host Port Hardy Whalers had hoped for a higher placement in the playoff round of the Port McNeill Minor Hockey bantam tournament Sunday at Chilton Regional Arena.

Instead, they took out their frustration on Port Hardy with a 10-0 win over the Hawks in the tourney’s fifth-place matchup.

Adrian Walker-Burroughs and Jacob Foldy each had hat tricks in the one-sided win between the North Island rivals.

The Whalers finished with the same record as Nanaimo following pool play, and had beaten Nanaimo 7-3 in the teams’ first-round meeting. But Nanaimo claimed a tiebreaker on point differential and moved into the third-place game, where it drubbed Campbell River 8-3.

The championship was won by Port Alberni, which finished an unbeaten run with a 4-1 win over Comox in the final.

Jaden Standiforth added two goals and Tyren Dustin and Brandon Saunders scored in Port McNeill’s win Sunday.

Dustin had a hat trick in the earlier win over Nanaimo.
