PORT HARDY—The Mustangs fought back three times to emerge 5-4 winners over the Bulls in a thrilling Port Hardy Mens Hockey League game Friday.

A long-range wrist shot from Mustang John Murgatroyd midway through the second period gave the Port McNeill side its first lead after the two sides traded goals to stand 3-3.

The side then got a buffer after outhustling the Bulls for the puck in their own zone, Chris Dutcyvich driving behind the net before laying off to the slot for an easy shot.

The Bulls found a reply virtually off the puck drop, Steve Verbrugge charging down the right boards and squaring the puck for Ethan Shaw to convert.

Both Colin Hunko, in net for the Bulls, and Mustangs net minder Bob Wells produced phenomenal stops in the frantic final minutes to keep the score at 5-4.

Commercial league hockey returns to Port Hardy Friday night as the Warriors host the Islanders. The puck drops at 9:15 p.m.
