The Port Hardy Secondary School's boys team finished 4th out of seven teams at the Island Championships.

The Port Hardy Secondary School (PHSS) boys soccer team finished 4th out of seven teams at the Island Championships.

PHSS’s first game was against St. Andrews, which they lost 2-1. Devin White scored the lone goal but injured himself half way through the game.

The team also lost Jaylon Grenier to injury, who did not play at all.

“They played very well,” said coach Mike Cleary, adding that the team “led the game 1-0 until the middle of the second half. St. Andrews scored the winner with one second left on the clock.”

PHSS’s second game was against Brookes-Shawnigan Lake, which they won 6-5 in penalty kicks.

“Brookes took a 3-1 lead well into the second half. With 10 minutes left in the game we managed to tie the game 3-3. We than went into extra time, two 10 minute halves. Brookes again scored 2 goals and led 5-3 at the half.  We tied the game in the last minute to go to penalty kicks, where we won,” said Cleary. Tyrone Wallace scored three goals, Seth Hanuse scored one and Trey Morash scored one.

PHSS’s last game was against Chemainus, who beat them 3-2 in penalty kicks. It was “a close fought game where we led 1-0 and then 2-1, but Chemainus tied the game late in the first half. The game remained tied for the second and we went straight into penalty kicks where we lost,” said Cleary.

Wallas and Morash scored the goals for PHSS.  Lyam Donetz captained PHSS for the Tournament, and Donetz, Wallas, and Morash were all selected to the all-star team.
