Warriors roll, 10-6

Port Hardy Warriors beat out the Port Hardy Bulls.

PORT HARDY—The Port Hardy Warriors scored goals on their first two power-play opportunities Friday night at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena.

So it did not bode well for the rival Port Hardy Bulls when the Bulls spent most of the second half of the commercial hockey league game on the penalty kill.

Eddie Walkus scored four goals, including three with the man advantage, as the Warriors overcame a 4-1 deficit and rolled to a 10-6 win over the Bulls.

The carnage included three power-play scores during a five-minute major for a mid-ice collision that was deemed an illegal body check, part of 41 minutes and two game misconducts racked up by the Bulls.

In all, the Warriors scored six unanswered goals after trailing 5-3 entering the final period.

Ty Morton added two goals and Jeff Cowles, Trygg Carlson, Quinn Mellow and Shelby Cockell scored once each. Corey Swain was the top playmaker with three assists, and Morton chipped in a pair. Cole Morton, who enjoyed a fairly quiet second half as the Warriors pressed the attack, got the win in goal.

Richard Burgess scored twice for the Bulls, who scored the game’s first two goals, one of them short-handed, and led 4-1 midway through the opening period. Curtis Martyn, Cody Diotte and Brad Zealand also found the net, and Shawn Patterson had a pair of assists. Colin Hunko was saddled with the loss in net.
