Warriors rally to tie Islanders

Shelby Cockell’s goal ties the game as Warriors rally to 3-3 draws at the Islanders.

PORT ALICE—Shelby Cockell’s goal with 1:10 left in the opening period tied the score, and the goalies took over from there as the Port Hardy Warriors rallied for a 3-3 draw with the host Neucel Islanders Friday night at Doug Bondue Arena.

Carter Mackay’s score at 12:46 of the opening period had given the Islanders a 3-2 lead. But, just as he did in the teams’ final meeting of 2013 in December, Cockell marked the first game of the season’s second half with a tying score as the clock ticked down.

The second period was scoreless, thanks in large part to the work of Islanders’ goalie Adam Hall and Warriors netminder Jason Saunders.

Bruce and Russell Murray and Kevin Woo also found the scoresheet for the Islanders in the tie. Cockell finished with two goals and Jake Colbourne added a tally for the Warriors, with Mitch Walker adding an assist.

B League

The Smokers rallied from a 3-2 halftime deficit to roll to a 10-4 win over the West Coast Rookies in B League play Friday in Port Hardy.

On Saturday, the Whalers upended the Smokers, 6-3, and on Sunday Mainline topped the Rookies, 5-2.
