Defenseman Chad McKenzie of the Bulls tries to drive Port McNeill's John Murgatroyd away from the net as Bulls goalie Colin Hunko gets set Sunday evening in Port McNeill.

Mustangs blank Bulls

Mustangs hung a 6-0 shutout on the Bulls in men’s commercial league play at Chilton Regional Arena.

PORT McNEILL—Port Hardy Bulls goalie Colin Hunko made several eye-popping saves Sunday against the Port McNeill Mustangs. Problem is, he needed to make even more.

Clint Cadwallader and John Murgatroyd scored two goals each and Bob Wells was steady and efficient in net as the host Mustangs hung a 6-0 shutout on the Bulls in men’s commercial league play at Chilton Regional Arena.

Reed Allen added a goal and Chris Dutcyvich finally punched home a point-blank rebound after taking several stabs at the puck as the Mustangs improved to 2-0-1 in league play.

The Bulls slid to 1-3-1.

Hunko was at his best in the second period while facing a flurry of solid chances from the hosts. On one occasion, he was left sprawled prone in the crease following a save, but managed to roll to his side and kick a leg pad into the air to deflect away an apparent free tip-in by the Mustangs’ Al Rushton.

Just more than a minute later, he robbed Rushton with a snap glove save on a point-blank one-timer.

Warriors 5, Islanders 2

Corey Swain scored two goals, including the game-winner, as the Warriors (3-2) overcame a 2-0 intermission deficit to the visitors from Port Alice.

Brian Texmo, Jeff Cowles and Ty Morton also scored for the Warriors.

Dave Stewart and Jason Hodson had goals for the Islanders (0-2).
