Palmer 4, Soldotna 3 The Moose survived a wild finish for the North Star Conference win Friday at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex. After a scoreless first period, Darren Fish gave the Moose a 1-0 lead with 14 minutes left in the second period.
By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion While the Brown Bears were away losing 12 of 13 games on a road trip, fans heard of a team playing pretty good hockey for, say, 50 minutes, but still managing to lose by multiple goals due to a 10-minute bad stretch.
The Soldotna and Wasilla hockey teams have cultivated quite a spectacular rivalry on the ice in recent meetings, starting with last year's quadruple overtime finish at the North Star Conference championship game.
Nearly everything has failed to snap the Brown Bears from a funk. One of the last resorts for the team is home ice.
The Bears are finally done with a 13-game road trip and return to the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex with 7:30 p.m.
