Results from the soccer tournament held last weekend in Port hardy

PORT HARDY—Port Hardy Soccer Association was the big winner in its season-ending tournament last weekend, but teams from Port McNeill and Gold River also managed to grab championships in the three-day competition at various fields in town.

Port Hardy’s Spartans outdueled the Angry Birds in a U12 girls final that pit a pair of local teams.

Port Hardy also won the U12 boys title, steamrolling Port McNeill 6-1 in Sunday’s final after the same teams tied 1-1 in their first meeting Saturday.

A new mixed U12 division was featured for smaller clubs, and Gold River topped Sointula in the title game.

Both U15 titles went to Port Hardy as well, with the girls outpointing Port McNeill’s Blue Ballers 8-3 in a high-scoring affair and the boys rolling past Port McNeill for a three-game series sweep.

Port McNeill’s two U18 teams, the Mulligans and the Capybaras, went head-to-head in the title game. The Mulligans posted a 2-0 win on corner-kick goals from Ty Brittain and Jenna Cowan, with an assist to Stewart McMillan on the second score. Both goals came in the final 15 minutes of play.
