Port Hardy's Kale Hunt

Novices put on a show

Local youngsters get a taste of competition at the Port McNeill Minor Hockey novice tournament.

PORT McNEILL—The visiting team from Campbell River rolled through the field, but it was smiles all around for local youngsters in the annual Port McNeill Minor Hockey novice tournament last weekend at Chilton Regional Arena.

The host club was joined by developmental teams, for players 7-8 years old, from Port Hardy, Port Alice and Campbell River in two days of round-robin games.

Campbell River’s Blue Thunder swept through its four games in one-sided fashion, but the North Island squads engaged in some spirited competition that give promise for entertaining matchups in the coming season.

The Port Alice Cougars and Port Hardy Hawks squared off twice and split the matchups, with the Cougars netting a 9-7 win Saturday and the Hawks bouncing back for a 10-6 victory Sunday. Port Hardy also topped Port McNeill’s LA Kings 11-7, but the Kings got their crown later with a 15-13 win over Port Alice.

Players from all teams were treated to a pancake breakfast before Sunday’s games, and many took advantage of Gate House Theatre’s showing of the animated feature Planes Saturday night. The event raised money for the local association through its raffle table, with numerous local businesses contribution items, 50/50 draws and a mid-tourney puck toss.
