PORT McNEILL—The North Island's peewee-level hockey players kept busy last weekend

PORT McNEILL—The North Island’s peewee-level hockey players kept busy last weekend, playing a three-game series against visiting Gold River and an exhibition against a squad of RCMP members and friends.

Port McNeill’s Emma Mitchell took a centering pass from teammate Randi Ward Saturday and buried it for the game-winner as the Triport peewee girls She-devils edged Gold River 6-5 in the most suspenseful contest of the series.

Mitchell’s second goal of the game came with 10:07 remaining and capped a She-devils comeback from a 3-2 deficit to start the third period.

Kerrigan Sharpe also scored twice and Tiffany Watson and Mercedes Trevor added goals. Ward had two assists and Sarah Case earned the winning goal.

The Port McNeill Storm also downed the Hawks, 9-7, but the score was deceptive. Behind a four-goal outburst from Kaisha Laird, the Storm built an 8-2 lead through two periods and led 9-3 before the Hawks closed the game with four goals in the final 15 minutes. Kris Joliffe and Cameron Grant scored twice each and Christopher Speck added a goal in the win. Lucas Blount was the winning goalie.

Riley Nelson and Tyrone Wallas scored goals for the Port Hardy Roadrunners in Saturday’s series opener, but it was not enough as the Hawks claimed an 8-2 win. Trey Morash and Jack Lavallee added assists for Port Hardy.
