PORT McNEILL-Local rivals meet in seventh-place game of annual Port McNeill tourney

Gazette staff

PORT McNEILL—The host club proved far more generous than it had hoped when Port McNeill Minor Hockey held its annual midget hockey tournament last weekend at Chilton Regional Arena.

The Whalers of Port McNeill went winless in the tourney, falling 14-2 to North Island rival Port Hardy in Sunday’s seventh-place game.

Liam Ryan scored four goals to pace Port Hardy, which tied in two of its three tournament games but missed out on a berth in the fifth-place game by a goal-differential tiebreaker.

That left the two North Island entries to renew their rivalry in the final game of the eight-team tournament.

Sunday’s playoff scheduled was reversed for travel purposes. Semiahmoo claimed the title with a 2-1 win over the Comox Valley Thundercats.

Cowichan Krauza claimed third place, 1-0 over Oceanside Green.
