It wasn’t a win, but it was a lot better than things looked for the Peninsula Oilers a little under a year ago.
At that time, financial distress put the 42nd season of the Oilers in doubt. But Sunday under blue and sunny skies, a large crowd watched the Oilers complete their 2015 campaign with a 7-4 loss to the powerhouse Mat-Su Miners at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai.
The financial problems sparked a discussion about taking this season off and regrouping, but Michael Tice, president of the Oilers board, said the right decision was made in pushing ahead.
