Kardinals clinch top spot in North Star Conference

Posted: Sunday, January 25, 2004

The Kenai Central High School hockey team finished the weekend with three wins at Brett Memorial Ice Arena in Wasilla to run its North Star Conference record to 8-0 and secure the top seed for the upcoming conference tournament.

After defeating Wasilla 6-1 Friday, the Kardinals came back to beat Colony 5-1 Saturday. Kenai had trouble staying at even strength in Saturday's game, but the special teams came through with short-handed goals from Daniel Christianson, John McGlasson and Charlie Smith, and power-play goals by Levi Goldsby and Phillip Ischi.

Soldotna also visited the Valley this weekend and finished 1-2, though the Stars played some of their best hockey of the season. Soldotna dropped a 6-4 decision to Wasilla Saturday, and defeated Palmer 6-1 in Friday's game.

The Skyview Panthers also made the trip to the Brett, dropping a 3-0 decision to Colony Friday. The Panthers played Palmer late Saturday night, and trailed the Moose 5-3 as the Clarion went to press. Paddy Iverson tallied for the Panthers, as did Gabe Fellman and Ginny Berg.
