Wild women claim rare tourney title

Port Hardy hockey team tops Intermediate division in season-ending tournament in Campbell River

The Port Hard Wild women’s hockey team claimed what is believed to be its first tournament title Sunday with a 3-0 victory over Campbell River Royal Coachmen in the Intermediate Division final of the Campbell River Wildcat Tournament at Strathcona Gardens.

The victory in the final avenged the team’s only loss, a 2-0 round-robin defeat at the hands of Campbell River in a game in which the team lost more than a half-hour of ice time due to an injury to an opposing player.

The Wild opened with a 2-1 win over Kerry Park and added a 3-1 win over a second Campbell River team to earn their way into the Intermediate final.
