Port McNeill's Kailah Tait

Mud Bowl, sans mud

Sun shines on Port McNeill’s annual Mud Bowl soccer tournament.

PORT McNEILL—Port McNeill’s annual Mud Bowl soccer tournament has a long and storied history of producing soggy and soiled uniforms while living up to its name.

On a brilliant sunny weekend that produced temperature records throughout the province, however, the traditional goo was nowhere to be found.

The host association dominated the upper age playoffs, sweeping titles in the U-18 and both U-15 divisions.

Port McNeill “Blue” topped Port McNeill “White” 5-1 in the U-18 final behind a hat trick from Juan Camacho; Asia Prest and Kerrigan Sharpe scored two goals each in Port McNeill’s 4-0 win over Port Hardy in the U-15 girls final; and Port McNeill’s U-15 boys romped to an 8-2 win over Port Hardy.

Port Hardy and Alert Bay got into the prizes in the U-12 division.

Faith Castillo scored three goals as Port Hardy’s girls topped Port McNeill 5-1; and Alert Bay outlasted Port McNeill’s U-12 boys 3-2 in the 13th round of a shootout.
